Google Product Feed – Extension Compatibility

While the Google Product Feed extension tries its best to play nicely with other extensions there are some areas where specific integration can yield better results.

The extension has specific support for the following WooCommerce extensions:

If you have a query about compatibility with a specific extension, reach out with a support request.

Product bundles integration ↑ Back to top

Bundle products created with the WooCommerce Product Bundles extension will be included in the feed as long as a default configuration for the bundle exists, and is valid for submission.

Composite products integration ↑ Back to top

Composite products created with the WooCommerce Composite Products extension will be included in the feed as long as a default configuration exists, and is valid for submission.

Brands integration ↑ Back to top

If you’ve assigned brands to your products using the WooCommerce Brands extension, then those brands can automatically be pulled through into your Google Product Feed.

Cost of goods integration ↑ Back to top

If you’ve used the WooCommerce Cost of Goods extension to assign costs to your products then you can automatically feed those costs through to Google Merchant Centre, allowing you to gain insights about metrics, such as your gross margin and the amount of revenue generated by your Shopping ads.

Multi-currency integration ↑ Back to top

If you have the WooCommerce Multi-Currency extension then you can submit feeds to Google in any of the currencies that you have enabled in the multi-currency extension.

Min/Max Quantities ↑ Back to top

If you have minimum purchase quantities set on your products using the WooCommerce Min/Max quantities extension, then the feed will automatically detect this, and ensure that the price sent to Google reflects the price to purchase the minimum quantity. So that Google properly understand your pricing, the plugin will also automatically send unit_pricing_measure and unit_pricing_base_measure information. For example, for a product priced at $1, and a minimum purchase quantity of 5, the feed would send:

<g:price>5.00 USD</g:price>
<g:unit_pricing_measure>5 ct</g:unit_pricing_measure>
<g:unit_pricing_base_measure>1 ct</g:unit_pricing_base_measure>

Product CSV Import Suite ↑ Back to top

There’s full support for WooCommerce Product CSV Import Suite allowing you to import data into any of the product feed data fields. The plugin also supports the import/export tool available in WooCommerce core version 3.1 or higher.

Product Vendors ↑ Back to top

If you are running the WooCommerce Product Vendors extension the Product Feed extension will automatically include any per-product shipping information that you add to the Google Product Feed.

Unsupported extensions

Some extensions are known not to be supported, specifically:

  • WooCommerce Subscriptions : Google do not allow the listing of recurring payment products in Google Merchant Centre, so there is no support for WooCommerce Subscriptions at this time.
  • WooCommerce Bookings : Google do not allow the listing of event tickets, or services in Google Merchant Centre, so Google Product Feed is not currently compatible with WooCommerce Bookings as most use-cases would not be allowable.
