Manage Channel templates

Add, remove and update channel templates

We have updated the google channel template and i wanted to to take this opportunity to show you how the “manage channel section” works ie installing, updating and removing channels.

First of all visit the “manage channels” section of the plugin.
You will find the installed and Uninstalled channel templates we support.

You will need to install a Channel template before you can use him in the Feed manager. So when you just started with our plugin the first thing you will have to do is to install the Channel of your choice.

Installing and Uninstalling is really easy Just Click on the install or Remove button to either install of remove the channel from the feed manager.

Updating Channels is important

Updating the channels is really important. We will always update channels as soon as the channel makes any changes in their feed requirements. By updating your Channel templates you are sure your feed will be approved by the Channel.

A channel will show a red version alert when there is a new update. Click the Update button to start the update. It is that easy.

Unsupported channel?

When your missing a template where you would like to show your product on. Please request the channel in our Feature request forum and we love to add the channel to our list of supported channel templates.

Exclude product from your feed

Advanced product filter

As off version 0.31.0 from our wp product feed manager and version 0.18.0 of the Woocommerce Google feed manager we have added advanced filter options. It will make it possible to exclude product from your product feeds.

Before, you could exclude and include products only by selecting the right category under “Category Mapping” This is not always right because you may have categories where you don’t want to include all product.

There are many situations where you would like to be able to exclude certain product from your feed. For instance you would like to exclude seasonal products, unprofitable products, products out of stock and not available.

Advance product filters, how to

Let’s take a look at the new filter options where to find them and how they work.

Let say we have products with low price in one category where CPA will exceed gross margin. So we want to exclude products under 10 bugs in the Music category.

Under the Category mapping we find a edit button next to the sentence “All products from the selected Shop Categories will be included in the feed”

When we click this button we get af familiar setup we also find under Condition with the attribute mapping.

How to use it

advanced-product-filter-create

We first select a source field “Regular price” next we select in the dropdown “is smaller than” and fill in 10. When we save the feed we will no longer have products in the feed with a regular price below $ 10,-

That’s how easy it is to use. Take an other look at the video for a walk through.
