Support » Plugin: WooCommerce Product Feed for Google, Facebook, eBay and Many More » Its missing the most important fields for shopping

  • It doesn’t include shipping-method, shipping-cost, shipping-class and any of the important shipping variables.
    So now the feed says that every single products costs the same amount of money to ship, even though I have items that are small and free, or small and cheap to ship.

    Very much unimpressed.

    Hi,

    Where will you upload your products? For Google Shopping, you have to configure your shipping and tax information from Google Merchant Center.

    No, you don’t. WooCommerce has build in variables for shipping methods and many others that refer to shopping. If you include these into the XML output, there is no need to configure Google Merchant. It would save you heaps of time and it would mean that you only need to update woocommerce, instead of both platforms.

    For anybody else who ended up with this crap plugin. There is a workaround if you want to set up shipping prices in Google Shopping.

    You can give you product attributes. And you can choose to not show them on the product page. This means you can make a product attribute with the shipping cost, a shipping label or another variable that you can then enter into Google Merchant. Merchant will see the shipping label and use the shipping cost you entered.
    Just pick “Shipping label” in the editor for the feed (in your WP dashboard) and then use the name of your attribute as a variable to insert into the feed.

    Kinda ridiculous you need a workaround for one of the most basic variables.
