Submit feeds via scheduled fetches

You can submit your shopping data securely through scheduled fetches. This article explains how you can create or edit a schedule for your product feed in your Manufacturer Center account.


To create or edit a schedule for a data feed:

  1. Sign in to your Manufacturer Center account.
  2. Select Products from the navigation menu, then click Feeds.
  3. Click the name of the feed you'd like to schedule.
  4. Click Settings on the subpage menu. Select the check box that appears beside “Fetch schedule”.
  5. Next, select the desired frequency, timing, and time zone of your feed. Fill in the File URL. (Important: The URL of your file location must begin with either http://, https://, ftp://, or sftp://).
  6. If your file requires a username and password to access, enter the appropriate login information to allow Google to access your file.
  7. Click Enable schedule.
  8. Click Save.


  • The size of the file you're scheduling must be less than 4 gigabytes (GB), and the user-agents "Googlebot" and "AdsBot-Google" cannot be blocked from the directory containing your feed.
  • Make sure that the feed URL points directly to your feed file in one of the supported file formats. Note that pointing to an HTML page of your website will cause the processing of your feed to fail.

Eligible file locations

Google Manufacturer Center supports scheduled fetches uploads using the http, https, ftp, or sftp protocols.

  • If you’re submitting via the "ftp", "http", or "https" protocols, keep in mind that username and password are optional fields and should be left empty if no username or password is required.
  • If you’re submitting via the "sftp" protocol, the username and password fields are required.
  • If you’re setting up a scheduled fetch within Manufacturer Center, you cannot use Google’s FTP or SFTP Server ( or s as your feed URL.
Note: With scheduled fetches, you host your feed files on your servers. If you’re hosting your files on an SFTP or FTP server, the username and password fields under "Schedule" refer to the credentials for your server. This login information is different from login information in the "SFTP/FTP/GCS" page, which contains the username and password required to access Google's SFTP or FTP upload server.
