As well as simply transferring product data to Google Merchant Centre, the extension also includes support for Google’s Product Review Feeds
. This allows you to send a feed to Google with details of all of your customer reviews, which can then enhance your product listing ads.
Before starting, you will need to apply to Google’s product review feed program
You can create a product review feed in your WooCommerce settings, under WooCommerce > Product Feeds.
Click on “Add New”, and set the type to “Google merchant centre product review feed”, e.g.
That’s the only configuration required on the WooCommerce side – just take a note of the feed URL shown after you save, as you’ll need it when setting up your review feed in Google Merchant Center.
Once you’ve been accepted onto the Google Product Review program, and have enabled your feed, you’ll need to set it up inside Google Merchant Center.
- Log in to your Merchant Center account
- Go to: Marketing > Product Reviews > Feeds
- Click the blue + button
- Enter the feed name woocommerce-review.xml and make sure that Scheduled Fetch is selected before clicking Continue
- Enter the filename, choose a fetch time, and enter the feed URL you noted earlier
Once that is completed, then Google will fetch and validate your feed and contact you if there are any issues.
