GoDataFeed can pick up your tab or comma delimited product source file (.txt or .csv) via FTP or HTTP from our -or- your server. We can also import XML files generated according to Google's XML or GoDataFeed's XML schema, see more details below.
To import via FTP or HTTP
Create a file based on GoDataFeed's Source File Specifications
Login to your GoDataFeed account, click Manage > Imports > Settings
For Source type, select either FTP or HTTP
Enter your FTP information and click Save . Then click Import (We support FTP, FTPS and SFTP).Or, if you need an FTP import location from GoDataFeed, enter the filename (either .txt, .csv, or .xml).To auto populate the GODataFeed FTP, click the folder icon next to FTP in the import settings. Place the file in the GDF assigned FTP.
Using an Existing Feed File as Your Source File
If you already have a feed file for Google Base, Shopzilla or other sites we can most likely use it as your source file.
Creating a Custom Field in Your Source File
To create a custom field in your source file, simply add the field to the source file (populate the data as desired) and it will automatically import in the next import via FTP or HTTP.
If your data comes from an integrated store, select the platform to learn how to add custom fields.
Zip File Requirements:
When using a Zip File, the name inside the file must be the same as the zip file name. For example, a zip file named Products.zip must have a file in it named Products.txt or Products.csv .
The file name and format must remain unchanged; DO NOT rename or remove existing fields once feeds have been setup.
