    I wish I could read the words on the screen. Hard to follow, but could be very useful to me.

    Do you know if this works for Amazon and eBay as well?

    This is the first time I’ve done something like this and I’ve been tasked with helping with the online portions of the sporting goods store I work at, creating a data feed is one of those things. Will an XML file for Amazon and eBay work or do I need to do a .txt file? Even then, I haven’t got those to work, either, I’m not sure what to do.

    @SunWarmed I’m not sure about zazzle as I’ve never used it, but if it will let you create an external XML feed, then you could probably get it to work…

    Does this work for zazzle clients also?
    clients that have products on zazzle or some similar site?
    This was very interesting.

    That sounds accurate. Thank you so much. I have been struggling with this for a few months now. Thanks again.

    To be clear, you’d like a video on how to create a spreadsheet of all your products for Google Product Search, how to convert that spreadsheet into a text file, and how to upload that file to GPS? Is that correct? If so, should be simple enough. Just let me know and I can work on it. Thanks!!

    Great video! I am trying to follow the directions on the Google Merchant Center Help to create a data feed by saving it as a txt file. Could you do a video to show how to create a file through a spreadsheet and then how to upload it? Thanks

    We have a Word Press site with a template written in php that was created by a friend. After watching your video I would almost feel comfortable enough about making these changes to the code myself so I could create an xml file, if you provided a copy of the code to cut and paste. Is that something you would be willing to share?
