Reprocess feed : is processing the feed which was last fetched

Fetch now : collects a new copy of the feed and processes it

 

I know it's strange, but they work differently. I personally don't see the point of reprocessing feed without collecting a new copy.

 

Hope it helps.

generally, never, ever, delete the primary-feed,
unless a person at google indicates to do so.

the primary-feed for a target-country should be registered only once.

if a feed is deleted, google will first attempt to delete all items that
were in that feed -- which may take 72-hours or more, depending
on inventory size; this delete-process will be in conflict with any
new re-upload or re-process, until all the items have been deleted.

also, if id values are not handled carefully, other issues may arise --
that is another reason why, a best-practice is to use the same feed
for all updates and to never delete the primary-feed after registration.

 

the primary-feed can handle about 100,000 inventory items --

only the one, single, feed is usually needed for a target-country

and only one, single, feed per target-country is recommended.

 

all updates are based on the physical item's assigned id --

a best-practice is to verify each id is unique, per physical

item submitted, and never change an id once assigned to

that physical inventory item.

 

as was indicated, any update to the primary-feed

requires a fetch, or a re-upload, of the feed file --

not a reprocesses of existing, cached, data.

reprocessing the feed is mainly used in conjunction
with a new or updated supplemental-feed/feed-rule;
after a feed-rule/supplemental-feed has processed,
the existing primary-feed may simply be reprocessed,
to apply the rules -- saving the network from having
to re-fetch the feed data -- especially useful for very
large inventory.

reprocessing may also be used with supported e-commerce platform-imports.
