Google Merchant Center Products Expiring Using Shopify [Solution]
Google Merchant Center Products Expiring Using Shopify [Solution]

When using Shopify you might notice that products expire, this is because products need to be submitted every 30 days.

Currently there seems to be an issue with the Content API used by the Google Shopping app within Shopify. And both parties will tell you to contact the other party to resolve, forcing you in an endless loop.

Solution 1

One option is to go to the specific product that is expiring in Google Merchant Center and edit something, like the title, description, etc… this will then force Shopify to post this new data to Google Merchant Center. Your products are now active for another 30 days.

Solution 2

Using a text delimited, xml data feed. As much as I don’t want to offer self-promotional services, I genuinely want to help merchants achieve there goals, is to use my data feed application which allows you to set a daily fetch, which means your products will never expire. Or you can use any other service as long as they are using a file URL data feed. Google Merchant Center can then collect the info every day or every week.
