Currently support data feeds in the following formats:
When creating your data feed, remember to save your file in one of the supported filetypes with the appropriate filename extension:
- .txt: text
- .xml: XML
- .gz: Gnu zip, compressed text or XML
- .zip: Zip, compressed text or XML
- .bz2: Bzip2, compressed text or XML
If you are scheduling your data feed, please ensure that the feed URL directly points to your feed file. If it points to your website instead, your item information will be fetched in a HTML format which will result in a feed failure. The URL must begin with either http://, https://, ftp://, or sftp://. If your file requires a username and password to access, please enter the appropriate login information to allow Google to access your file.
