Set up your product data in Google Sheets

A custom icon for Merchant Center Classic Article Header.

This article includes instructions on how to create and upload your product data in Google Sheets. Merchant Center offers a template to help you build your product data.

Before you get started with creating and uploading your product data, you will need to register your Google Sheet with Merchant Center.

Add your data

Fill out your feed according to the instructions below for the type of spreadsheet you're using. Do not import or open a .xlsx file in Google Sheets, as doing so may cause encoding issues.

Submit your feed

Once you've submitted your feed, you should check the "Processing" tab in your Merchant Center account for possible feed processing errors. To view a full list of errors and warnings, go to the "Diagnostics" page and troubleshoot your feed if necessary.

Google Sheets format requirements

Note: Removing a data source that uses a Google Sheet from your Merchant Center doesn’t delete the Google sheet itself. Furthermore users of your Merchant Center account that had access to the Google Sheet will retain access. Learn more about deleting Google Sheets or changing sharing settings.
