To keep your items in Base current, you should send us a new data feed as often as your item information changes. The great news is that you don't have to send us your file manually anymore. Now Google Base can download your data feed from your website. Here's how to get started:
- Make sure your updated data feed is available on a fixed, externally accessible URL on your website.
- Define the schedule that Google Base should follow to retrieve the bulk upload file from that URL.
Google Base will retrieve and process your data feed according to the schedule you define. You can set daily, weekly or monthly schedules and specify the exact time your file should be retrieved. Just make sure that your bulk upload URL belongs to the website you registered in your Account Settings. Within your Account Settings you can also choose whether you want to receive email notifications when Base retrieves and processes your data feed. You can find all the details and step-by-step instructions about setting your schedule in our Help Center article.
