Features and benefits of the module
- the ability to create your own configuration of files to generate by combining parameters such as: (language, country, shop, currency, delivery method, and the rest of the parameters responsible for products and information about them contained in the generated xml file).
- the possibility of mapping the shop category to the Google product category (in Poland it is not a required parameter, but if you intend to sell to some countries of the European Union, it is required) mapping takes place using the auto-completion function, so you enter some expression next to the shop category and a list appears to us hints containing this expression in the category name and then we select and press save in this way we can quickly map quite a large number of categories
- products can be selected through categories, i.e. we choose which categories of products are to be found in the generated XML file for Google Merchant Center
- the possibility of using a dictionary for product descriptions and names eg Google does not like and does not accept certain expressions in descriptions or the name of the product as FREE DELIVERY then we can exchange such a word on the fly or remove it without correcting the products
- products can be filtered by excluding data from manufacturers, suppliers or individual product IDs, or categories
there is a possibility of breaking the combination of products (attributes) into individual products, ie, for example (Blouse name - Color: Red - Size: 44) etc. the possibility of excluding products with a lower price than specified in the configuration possibility to choose what should be the GTIN number in the generated file for a given product (EAN, UPC, Index (reference number)) the ability to include or exclude delivery costs for generated products in an XML file possibility to choose what to be the MPN number in the generated file for a given product (supplier's reference number, index (reference number) m or product id) or we can disable this attribute delivery costs (cost, name of delivery method, country's ISO code) are generated for each of the products in the xml file (additionally delivery cost for all countries that are in the same geographical zone as the country given when creating the configuration for the xml file) the option of selecting a description for the product (short description / long description) as any of the descriptions does not exist and was chosen in the configuration this module will replace with another existing description custom_label support from 0 to 4 (these are your own descriptive labels entered from the product level) the possibility of choosing the type of product photo option to add a producer name inAll product images are generated from the file all the values of the availability attribute are supported (in stock, unavailable, made to order) the order works in such a way that when we set the date when the product will be available, the value of "on order" appears in the availability attribute the sale price attribute (discounted) and the price before the discount are supported an adult-only attribute is supported (the ability to enable or disable it) attribute of the unit price is supported the product status attribute is supported (new, used, refurbished) the product type parameter is supported (the full path of the category of a given product) all required parameters are supported the option to exclude selected products on the product editing tab the Google Shopping tab when editing the product
