I saw a post about this that is outdated and didn't get to many responses. See this link for reference: https://ecommerce.shopify.com/c/ecommerce-marketing/t/google-promotion-feed-198203

Is there a solution for this yet? I would really like to start doing google promotions and special offers.

Use DataFeedWatch if you want more control of your feed. Shopify's app is intended as a simple solution that limits capabilities in many regards.

If you want full control over your feed, here is how you can generate your own feed using a custom collection template: https://business.czarto.com/2016/06/14/shopify-google-shopping-feed/

If you want to costomize anything, coding will be required, but it should give you the lexibility you want.

Yes, it would look like this: 

<g:promotion_id>MY-PROMO-1</g:promotion_id>
<g:promotion_id>MY-PROMO-2</g:promotion_id>
<g:promotion_id>MY-PROMO-3</g:promotion_id>

Where MY-PROMO-1 is your specific the promotion id. You would need to build in your own logic into the template as to which products get what promotion id, etc...

Best,

Alex
