Google Shipping Information Requirement
How are folks handling the google shipping information requirement? We have several thousand products that we ship by weight. Because we import some of the products we sell, our shipping rates do not map directly to carrier rates.
The options on google's end seem to be:
1) a flat rate (or free shipping)
2) define and maintain shipping rate tables in the google merchant interface
3) A carrier calculated rate
What we would like to be able to do is pull in rates as we have them defined in the aspdnsf database.
Has anyone else encountered this sort of issue? What did you end up doing?
I'm having issues with getting the shipping information from DotFeed to Google Feed. Also, we currently use Real Time rates with FedEx and Google only seems to allow for flat rate services.
Is there going to be a tutorial or announcement regarding this?
Jlion, I apologies for not responding immediately.
While we're doing the best we can to add more features into dotfeed, however, at this time there is no way you can map your existing AspDotNetStorefront shipping settings into the feed, sorry. You will have to recreate those shipping tables in Google/Merchant -> Settings -> Tax and Shipping -> Custom Table.
For fixed-shipping, use the shipping attribute in the feed.
*The same format goes for flat-rates.*
For real-time rates, donít specify shipping, just include a valid and correct shipping_weight attribute for the item, Google should use your shipping-settings (see image) within your account.
Note: The shipping rate that will appear in Google Product Search may not really be real-time rates; itís for estimation purposes only as the feed update may take 24-72 hours to process.
