The product listing generated by the component is in XML format, and can be manually uploaded, or submitted to Google Merchant Center for scheduled upload. Once uploaded to your Google Merchant centre account the feed can be used for Google Product Search, Google Product Ads, and Google Commerce Search. The product feed supports the all specifications required by Google (see the Google feed specification ) and also supports all the optional attributes such as size and color (except for loyalty points and installments attributes). The feed can also support product variants using Virtuemart child products.
Please note that there are three versions of this component, for different versions of Joomla and Virtuemart. If you buy this product you will be able to download all versions.
The versions are:
Version 4 for Joomla 2.5 and Virtuemart 2
Version 3 for Joomla 1.5 and Virtuemart 2 (Legacy version)
Version 2 for Joomla 1.5 and Virtuemart 1.1.x (Legacy version)
You can find more about how it works here in the documentation. You can view the documentation for the legacy versions here.
You can see an example of the product feed for our own site here.

The data feed generated by our GooglebaseXML component can be used to submit products for any or all of these target countries. However Google product search will reject product listings that are not in the language of the target country.
