How do I setup Google Shopping data feeds?

To use this service you will need to turn on the feed in Neto and have a merchant account with Google.

Once you have provided the feed URL (from Neto) to Google they will be able to display your products on their website. CSE’s will typically poll these URLS daily to update their systems with your latest inventory data.

You can opt to set this up yourself or Neto provides professional services to set this up on your behalf.
