Supplemental Feeds (Non-Feed Tool Accounts Only)

How to apply modify products rules when you are not using the feed tool natively

Updated over a week ago

NOTE: Supplemental Feeds are only available for accounts that are not operating feeds via our app such as when installing from BigCommerce, Shopify, or setting up File/URL Feeds. 

Supplemental feeds can only be used to override data in your Google Merchant Center feed for a variety of reasons, such as updating default titles. 

The Modify Products tool can be used for "non-feed tool hosted accounts", but it is with Supplemental Feeds that you will implement your modifications.

After building any Modify Products rule:

Click on the Generate files button.  This will trigger the software to build out a hosted TXT file that you can upload into Merchant Center. It will take a couple of minutes for this action to be completed, so hold tight while the file builds. 

When the file is built, you'll see it listed on the page, and an icon to the far right to copy the URL to your clipboard. Click that icon, and head over to Merchant Center.
