How to manage your Google Merchant Center and Google Shopping feed all in one place

Setting up your Google Shopping feed has never been easier. Connect with Channable’s Google Shopping API or shopping feed in minutes to start advertising your products on the world’s largest search engine.

How your Google Shopping feed or Content API works

A Google Shopping feed is a CSV or XML file that includes all the information necessary to advertise on Google Shopping. Think of attributes like a product title, description, price, and so on. Your Google Shopping feed builds a direct connection between the products in your online shop and the ads that you create on Google Shopping. The more information your Google product feed contains, the better!

A Google Shopping API connection works much the same way as a feed. The difference here is that an API connects to your online shop in real-time. Resulting in automatic updates to your online shop, such as stock or price changes.

Optimize your Google Merchant Center product feed

Different from Google Text Ads, which are based on keywords, Google Shopping is connected to a product data feed which then becomes your Google Shopping feed.

Your Google merchant center account is your base to upload all of your product data related to your online shop and provides the information needed to advertise on Google Shopping. Optimizing your Google Shopping feed will have a direct impact on the performance of your Shopping campaigns. Providing Google with information in the correct format, however, can sometimes be quite difficult depending on your source data. Think about the format of your product titles or product attributes like colors and materials. Optimizing your Google Merchant Center product feed now feels a bit overwhelming. Now think of automatically updating, optimizing, and organizing your product feed to your Google Merchant Center, sounds good? Then see how an automation solution can make this your reality.

Powering your Google Shopping feed or API with automation

With an automation solution, you can utilize features such as:

Smart categorization of products - built-in smart categorization lets you categorize your products in only a few minutes. Categorizing your products correctly is the first step to successfully advertise with Google. Categorizing manually takes a long time, especially if you have a varied or large catalog. Smart categorization cuts your time spent on categorization significantly.

Directly synchronize your product catalog with Google merchant center - Utilizing an integration for your product data feed via XML or API, you can sync and update your entire catalog of items and ads.
