  • Refresh Interval – the interval you set to auto-update the feed

  • Updated – The date and time it was last updated

Add New Feed

Go to this menu if you want to create a new product feed list.
More details on it here:

Category Mapping

Some merchants/marketplaces such as Google has their own set of rules regarding assigning the category for products.

However, it does not make sense to change the product category of your store to match the category list of the required merchant.

You can use the category mapping feature where you will be able to map the categories of your store according to the category list of your required merchant.

When you generate feed, you can assign these mapped categories to be included in the product feed and not the categories in your store.

Google Merchant Settings

You can auto-sync your WooCommerce store’s product feed directly with Google Merchant Center using WooCommerce Product Feed Manager.

Once you set this up, your feed will automatically be uploaded on Google Merchant Center; you will not have to download and upload manually.
