Syncing your products

Shopify's Google Shopping channel automatically syncs all your products from your Shopify store to the Google Merchant Center. Google sets a strict 30-day expiry policy on synced product data, so the Google Shopping channel updates your products automatically within that 30-day period to avoid account suspension or loss of product data.

Choosing which products to sync with the Google Merchant Center

If you prefer to choose which products to sync, then you can change the availability of a single product manually or do a bulk action to change the availability for several products.

  1. From your Shopify admin, go to Products.

  2. Click a product name to enter the product details screen.

  3. In Sales channels, click Manage.

  4. Enable or disable Google Shopping.
