My google shopping feed is currently active and available on Shopping and Google Surface via Google API which is great.
Problem persists when I try to upload my own tab delimited feed for Local Product Feed. I've checked the storecode, itemid, availability, price and everything makes sense.
I received the error "offer does not exist".
I've tried using the shopify ID in GMC (EG: shopify_AU_4677150179427_32917051670627) as itemid, the variant_id (4677150179427) as itemid; they both don't work.
Anyone has any luck uploading a scheduled feed for local product inventory & listings without needing to use a paid app?
Product Feed Screengrab:
The column itemid is not a valid attribute name. It should be id.

In your inventory spreadsheet, the column header (the attribute) has to be ID, not itemid.
Itemid is not a valid attribute name.
Thank you for replying and helping out.
The header in my inventory feed is ID, and I am using tab delimited. I've tried using both product ID and variant ID as the ID.
I've double checked the product ID in my client's shopify - basically searched for the id on the product page and it matches the product. So it is safe to say that I am using the right ID. Currently, the client did not specify any SKU.
What would you recommend in order for this to work? Set SKUs for all the products and create a new inventory feed with SKU ids instead of variant id?
This requires careful examination of the feed itself.
From the screenshots it looks to me the id's don't match.
You can go to Google Merchant Center > products > all products > and download your products from the main feed.
Then rebuilt your supplement inventory feed.
If that still fails, contact Google directly for support.
Setting a local inventory feed is very hard, because there are lots of moving parts. If you can not resolve it, contact Google directly.
