Every time I create a product through the API, It is enabled or disabled by the published at attribute, but how can I make the product available on the google shopping?

I already checked the meta attributes and nothing is changed when you manual set the google shopping availability, also the products attribute stay the same but the updated_at attribute.

Hi @yeisonziruma,

 

Unfortunately this is not possible, the Shopify Admin API only allows you to publish products to the Online Store.  Apps that are sales channels can publish products to their own channel, but you would not be able to publish to an outside channel like google shopping.

Any updates on this? This is really a requirement on our side. Imagine that you are managing 5000 products with another inventory management software. I can not just go update 5000 products by hand to publish them to the google channel.

There's a functionallity that allows you to edit product attributes in batch through the interface, if you want to update them all as active is quite easy, but the problem as you said is that if you want to disable products using a software managing the inventory is almost impossible

This is possible, but you can only do it if you are on Shopify Plus (it requires an API permission scope that is only available on that level). It is achieved via the "publishablePublish" mutation in GraphQL. See: https://shopify.dev/api/admin/graphql/reference/products-and-collections/publishablepublish

 

You can also remove them from being pushed to Google by using https://shopify.dev/api/admin/graphql/reference/products-and-collections/publishableunpublish
