Starting tomorrow, the Google Shopping team is launching a four-part Hangout on Air series to answer frequently asked questions about product feeds. Tomorrow's Hangout on Air will cover...

 

Pricing, Taxes & Shipping

Tuesday, September 10, 2013 at 10:00 AM PDT

How do I include the right price into my data feed?

How does tax & shipping work?

What if I have a sale or promotion for free shipping?

Future Hangouts on Air in this series will cover troubleshooting disapprovals, scaling inventory, and optimizing product attributes. You can find the full Hangout on Air schedule here, but we'll also update you in the Community closer to time.

 

For tomorrow's Hangout on Air, we'll update this thread with the link to the recording, in case you can't make it to the live event. (UPDATE: Link posted above)

Coco,

Is this going to be broadcast?

Edit:  I suppose the answer is right in front of me "For tomorrow's Hangout on Air, we'll update this thread with the link to the recording, in case you can't make it to the live event."  :smileyhappy:

Thank you for attending yesterday’s Google Shopping Feed Office Hours! If you missed part of the session, please find the stream here: http://youtu.be/c4e2OLgr7kw

 

To sign up for other parts to the series, see below:

“Troubleshooting Disapprovals”: http://goo.gl/uGksd8

“Scaling Inventory Updates”: http://goo.gl/n1fRKA

“Optimizing Product Attributes”: http://goo.gl/7mNPsp

 

We have summarized the top questions from the Q&A session below. If you have a question you’d like us to answer at a future session, please submit it here: http://goo.gl/VgYfFS

 

Q: Can “Free Shipping” be used as a part of the product description?

A: The title and description of the items you submit are intended to contain product information about the item and should not include promotional text, like free shipping. For PLAs on Google.com, this information can be included in the Promotional text field in the AdWords campaign settings.

 

Q: What if I want to offer free shipping via a promo code?

A: We suggest you look into using the Promotional Text field in AdWords. We also have a program called Retail Promotions (available in the US only) which helps scale promo codes. Find out more here: http://www.google.com/ads/shopping/retail-solutions.html

 

Q: Does the attribute “effective date” have to be included in the feed if there is a sale price?

A: No. If no effective date is included in the feed, then the default is for the sale price to continue indefinitely until the feed is updated. See here for effective date properties: https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/188494?hl=en#sale_price_effective_date

 

Q: If there is a flash sale that goes on for 3 hours but the item sells out in 2 hours, what is the best way for retailer to update?

A: Resubmit the feed only updating the quantity attribute of just that item.

 

Q: Where can I find a defined set of requirements for Unique Product Identifiers?

A: Visit our support page on Merchant Center here: https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/160161?hl=en

 

Q: Can I promote Bulk Discounts for my products?

A: For items sold in bulk quantities, the price for the lowest purchasable number of items must be provided (not the per unit price) and the same price has to be straightforward to find on the landing page.
