We accept your Google Products feed
One popular feed format we accept is Google's Products US Feed Specification in the tab-delimited, CSV, or RSS format. If you already send your listings to Google, be sure you specify a single "product type" to tell us where you would like to place your listing.
Please check below to see our standard and required fields. If your feed has different field names, tell us and we may be able to take care of it for you. If you're not sure what format your feed file is, sign up and we'll review it for you. Contact Us if you have any questions.
Compress your files
To speed up the transfer of your feed to us, we highly recommend compressing your feed file with either Zip or GZip. When you compress your file, be sure to end your file name with .zip to tell us you used Zip compression or .gz to gell us you used GZip compression.
