Feed Uploads

What are feed uploads?

Feed uploads in Google Merchant Center (GMC) refer to the process of submitting a product feed file to the Merchant Center platform.

Upload options

You have several options when uploading a data feed to Google Merchant Center. These include uploading a file from your local drive, uploading a feed using a URL (HTTP), accessing Google Sheets, or using a feed management solution.

File size limit

If you're submitting a compressed file, it must be under 4 GB. If your file is larger than 4 GB, you must split it into multiple smaller files before uploading.

Steps to upload a product feed to GMC

The process of uploading a feed involves the following steps[1]:

  1.  In your GMC account, go to the “Products” section.
  2.  Click ” Feeds ” to locate the feed you want to submit.
  3.  Depending on the input method you initially picked, you'll see options such as “Upload file,” “Access Google Sheets,” or others.
  4.  Select the appropriate option and choose the feed file you want to upload.

Automatic updates

After uploading a feed, you can create a schedule to update your feed automatically. It ensures that your product data stays up to date in Merchant Center.
