Hi Partners and Developers

 

Does anyone know much about the API feed for the google sales channel?

Specifically for merchant center promotions.

When creating promotions in merchant center they keep getting disapproved with this notification:

SKU's keep getting disapproved and the promotion doesn't show on the shopping ads.

I am wondering if shopify sends any data to the [promotion_id] attribute.

 

Thanks for any help.

The promotion ID is only required if the promotion applies to only a selected subset of products.

The free shopping app, does not have a promotion id attribute available. However you could add the promotion value in custom label 0

Then in Google Merchant Center go to Products > Feeds > click on the feed > feed rules > create a rule for promotion_id and select set to and choose custom label 0

If you don't want to do these steps, change your data feed solution to something that allow you to add promotion id values.

Hi EmmanuelFlossie, 

I used a supplemental feed by creating a google spreadsheet this was done to alleviate the missing value GTIN error on Google Merchant Center (GMC). Can i take that same file add a column promotion_id and fill in the id (that i will use on my promotion) for all relevant promotions ? Does this means i would have to add the attribute to my google feed in GMC?. Any help on how to do this would be appreciated.  When i create my promotion i would then create an id and fill that in to my supplemental feed and update the feed that way. Im just not too clear on how to create the attribute on the GMC side. 


thanks

RJ

Yes, you can use the same supplement feed and add the promotion_id column.

 

No, supplement feeds are there to overwrite or add attributes and data. So it does not need to exist in the primary feed.

 

Yes, first add the promotion id in the feed, process it, wait half an hour, then create the promotion using the same ID in the promotion creation tool.
