How often does the shopify google apps "content API" feed update?

Coming from a woocommerce background we are used to having the "refresh feed" option in our google merchant account. But now we are using the google apps shopping feed via shopify, there isn't this option due to it going through an API.

 

So my question is, after updating product data within shopify, how long does it take for the content API to refresh with google merchant centre?

 

It's really disappointing that we cannot refresh the feed like we can with woocommerce which is an extremely useful feature.

Depending on the app you can or can not refresh.

 

The free app you seem to be refering to, Google Channel App, updates info on a product by product basis. This means if you update a price on 1 product, then this info will be updated in Google merchant center.

 

There are apps such as: https://apps.shopify.com/multiple-google-shopping-feeds

That have the ability to manually push the whole feed whenever you like.

thanks - so if we update the product info within the google channel app then this doesnt get pushed across? If so this is really poor.

I did not say that.

 

I said, when you update product info, it gets pushed, based on which product you updated.
