Hi Roger, 

 

Anjay answer is somewhat outdated authorid searches no longer work effectively. 

 

There are other limits though see here: https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/188477?hl=en

 

Google don't publish the maximum limit of feeds you can have.

 

This depends though on the method of upload of the feed itself.

 

There is a limit of 150,000 items per account i've seen for a few of my customers which require contacting Google to discuss increasing.

Hi Roger
Here are few details that might help you with information you are seeking:
no matter how many items are uploaded the google-merchant-center-dashboard
will only ever show a random list of about 10,000 items -- 1000 pages by default.

using authorid searches are another way to verify items --
http://google.com/support/merchants/bin/answer.py?answer=160641

# there's a limit of 100000 items per feed-file --
# there's a limit of 15mb for a scheduled upload;
# there's a limit of 20mb for a web-based upload;
# there's a limit of 1gb for an ftp-based upload;
# there's a limit of 10 registered data-feed-files.
# there's a limit of one upload per hour;
# there's a limit of once every 24-hours for the
same file being uploaded -- unless there are errors.
# there's a limit of about 10000 random items within the dashboard.

If you’re submitting a large number of items, you will receive a notification in your account when you’re approaching or have reached your current limit.

I have noticed in your response this is an almost direct copy of a top contributors answer from 2010.

Not only is your answer now incorrect, you have failed to credit the original poster. If you are going to copy a reply to a forum post, please ensure the answer is still valid and credit the original poster by supplying the link to the original answer or alternatively link directly to the post.

 

Thanks

Hi Tom
Thanks for letting me know of this, going ahead I would sure mention the actual contributor, not that I was playing smart, just that did not pay heed to the fact, my mistake and apologies for that.
