Hello

Can GoogleBaseXML handle promotions?

If so, how?

TIA

I think you mean the promotion_id attribute? https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/7050148

At the moment it is not supported. We could add it in a future release. There is a field for it in the product overrides already, but it is not as yet implemented in the feed.

That's it, yes.

When might you be able to add it, as 'a future release' is pretty non-committal.

We just registered for Promotions, before realising we do not have the means to actually add any.

Thanks

I don't know what you expect me to say to that.

I see no problem with adding it, it is not a big commitment in terms of coding. But we have just made a release, and so far you are the first person to ever ask about it, so it is something we will look at adding in the next release, rather than something that we would treat as an urgent priority.

We hope to have a new release of the extension, with support for the promotion_id attribute later this week/early next week.

Thanks, have updated.

If using a custom field, which type and how configured?

TIA

* Create a new string custom field in Virtuemart
* In the feed options, select this field for the 'Promotion Id' option
* In the Virtuemart product editor, attach this field to the product, supply the value for the promotion id, this is the value that will appear in the feed

You can repeat the final step for each product that you want to supply a promotion id for.

Ok.

I setup a custom field called: 'promotion' and applied it to 1 product.

I added a new feed and selected just the category that the 1 product is in and also selected 'promotion' as the promotion-id in Product Options.

It is a small category, with just 5 products.

I ran the feed but cannot see any reference to the promotion.

Thanks

Another issue is that the category contains 6 products:

All have stock and are identically configured, other than obvious fields like: Name, Description, sku, gtin.

2 of the products do not actually appear in the feed output.

1 has the promotion custom field applied, the other does not.
