    Hey sisqonrw,
    you need to upload product-feed.php in the folder of your theme.
    you need to add the code from 2a. in functions.php (found on your theme folder)
    you don't need to export anything, if properly set-up your feed will be generated automatically, and you will find it at http://www.yourdomain.tld/feed/products/

    I know it's a long and boring read, but take while and read the whole article and the updates (found on the bottom of the article).

    I've set up the feed for 10 clients so far (paying and non-paying), all of them were pleased. I can help you too, just leave me a message :)

    Hey, I finally had the time to write a "proper" plugin, it need a lot of improvements, but keep in mind, it's free and it works.
    You can get the plugin from here http://www.victorciobanu.com/free-woocommerce-product-feed-plugin/

    Cheers

    ps. your issues are related to the fact that you did not remove the <!--?php the proper syntax is <?php

    Your feed gets generated but as i can see you get an error :
    xmlParseEntityRef: no name

    the error is caused by :
    There is a stray ‘&’ (ampersand character) somewhere in the XML text eg. some text & some more text

    You need to use HTML numbers so & should be '& amp;' > should be '& gt;' in your product category and google category.
    In your particular case
    Health & amp; Beauty & gt; Personal Care & gt; Hair Care & gt; Shampoo & amp; Conditioner

    eliminate the space between & and gt; and & and amp;

    ok i thought that the plugin show me in the back end all. when i klick to this link. i can see the feeds in google reader.
    google reader show me 9 products and all 45 products. does it work it know?

    what can you suggest me? i am using:

    Health & Beauty > Personal Care > Hair Care > Shampoo & Conditioner

    i am not selling only shampoo. i sell shower gel, soaps, baby care products too.

    should i use this

    Health & Beauty > Personal Care

    or this

    i would go for Health & amp; Beauty & gt; Personal Care , however your feed is missing some key elements for example mpn (taken from sku) and shipping weight (used in google merchant to calculate the shipping costs).
    I can see that you are German, if you need to sell your products to the German market you need to change some variable around. Google merchant is different for Germany (I did a shop for a German company that retails led lights). For example you can't use "new" , you need to use "neu" and also you need to change the stock variables (found in products-feed.php) from 'in stock' : 'out of stock' to 'auf lager' : 'vorbestellt'
    Use this article as a reference (it describes my German shop experience http://www.victorciobanu.com/woocommerce-free-google-product-feed/

    hope this helps a bit...

    It takes about 4 days to get your products approved and listed.

    I just remembered for a german shop aimed at a german market you need to use "german google category taxonomy" you can find that specific taxonomy here http://support.google.com/merchants/bin/answer.py?hl=de&answer=1705911

    so, don't use Health & amp; Beauty & gt; Personal Care ! use the German equivalent of that !

    so do i understand right that i do not use your plugin? should i use your link

    http://www.victorciobanu.com/woocommerce-free-google-product-feed/

    ?

    :) unless you are able to adapt the file product-feed.php (found in the plugin directory) to the German taxonomy needs, i would disable the plugin and use the one detailed on my site, yes. The one in my site already has german taxonomy in it. (it's not a plugin thou and requires minimum php knowledge!)

    I will start working on a German version of the plugin (with the right taxonomy for the German google merchant) tonight.
    Sorry about this, all my customers for the implementation were US/UK/AUS so the plugin was aimed at helping them (also to show gratitude for their support) ;
    You are the first person from DE that manifests interest into this :)
    I'll start coding now...
    Zum Wohl

    Hi,

    you are telling here:

    http://www.victorciobanu.com/woocommerce-free-google-product-feed/

    c. Access your product feed by adding going to http://yourStore/feed/products/

    and

    d. Specify the link to your product feed in your Google merchant account and on your webmaster tools under submit sitemap.

    how can i do that?

    your plugin do not works with product variation. here you have one product but with many variation:
    http://www.komili.eu/?product=komili-anti-schuppen-shampoo-aus-100-naturlichem-olivenol
    in word press you have to write the different article-no of each product in the variation option.
    can you solve this problem in your plugin.
    that is the reason why many products of me arent in google shopping.
