I'm curious if anyone knows.  How often does the Google Shopping Application automatically publish to Google?

I know if we make any product modifications, the application automatically will update our Google account, but what about the products that have no changes.  Is there a certain day of the week that the Google Shopping application automatically updates Google?

You can check within Merchant Center to see when API pushes are made. In the API diagnostics report. If products have no changes, why do you even want to know the frequency they are pushed into the Merchant Center? They are not changed and Google policy says it only needs to be updated every 30 days.

Hey Joshua,

 

I have the same question. I think it stems from Google Merchant Centre stating that your products 'expire' within 30 days. We want to avoid that expiration seeing as it takes 3 or 4 days for the products to be re-approved. Don't want to lose those sales.

 

Any insight? 

 

Cheers,

Uri

Just look at the API diagnostics Uri. I can see Shopify pushes at least every day at the same time and then you can do manual ones. Jan 5 onwards in the ss below shows my manual pushes that break up the app's automatic pushes.
