Hi Andrew,


I've not experienced a zip file being downloaded before from downloading the required html file to verify your site.


Could you provide screenshots of the process you're using?


Many thanks

If downloading the html file failed you can create one yourself.


Create a file named google9ad407bc7ecda833.html

Inside the html file paste the below code

google-site-verification: google9ad407bc7ecda833.html

Save the file, and upload the file to the route of your server so that the link below is where the file is located


But form testing, it looks like you have already done this.


All you need to do now is login to Google Merchant and go to Business Information > Website and click on verify.


hope it helps
