Hi everyone, 

 

I can't seem to get my content api to multiple countries. I've read in the documentation this isn't possible. Is there a workaround?

It depends on the app or feed management tools you are using.

For example on my application you can submit a text delimited file then add multiple countries by going to Google Merchant Center > Products > Feeds > click on your feed > settings > add the countries.

 

However it's rather pointless. Using Google's currency conversion will only give you 10% or less of potential traffic. If you are serious about advertising you need to localize. IE have the same language and currency as the target country, in this case you get the full potential of traffic.

 

Hope this helps.

Make sure you only use 1 data feed solution. Submitting multiple feeds may get you suspended if you are submitting the same product more than once.

 

The best practice is to stick with one solution. So if you want to use manual data, that is fine, but remove any other feeds.

 

Also remember manually adding data, which means you need to manually update the prices and availability. So if you have a lot of products, it is best to use an automated system.

 

If you have any specific questions, let us know. The community is happy to guide you.

Content API does not allow a product to have multiple countries. The workaround is to submit a new id for every country.

Shopify's official app and our Google Shopping Feed app follows a similar approach. product ids we use have the following format shopify_{country}_{product}_{variant}
