How to download Product Feed from Google Merchant Center

If you want to take a look at what products you have uploaded onto Google Merchant Center to double-check whether it’s up to optimization yet, this article is for you! Let’s take a look at our step-by-step tutorial below to download the product feed on Google Merchant Center at ease!

If you upload your feed by file or Google Sheets

Submitting product feed by files or Google Sheets are indeed the two most popular ways to get your products to appear on Google Shopping. 

However, suppose that you cannot trace back the location of the files or Sheets due to massively stacked-up documents, just download your feed directly from Google Merchant Center.

We’ll make it simpler beyond your expectation. Take a look!

On the left panel, choose 'Product' then 'Feed' on the drop-down

If you have a third party to get your back

Like above, select 'Product' then 'Feed' from the drop-down list
