How to connect FeedArmy data feed to Google Merchant
If you are migrating from an existing data feed such XML, Shopify API, Plugin etc… you will first need to delete the existing feed before you add FeedArmy to avoid policy violations.
Step 1 – Go to your Data Feed Settings
Click on Data Feeds from the menu and enable the feeds you want to use in the first tab.
Then from the tabs, choose the channel to which you want to connect to. For the purpose of demonstration, let’s click on Google Shopping.
Now click on Copy Feed Link, by clicking on this button it will automatically copy the link to your clipboard.
