Inventory Sync Setup

In order for CartRover to sync inventory levels to Google Shopping, Google requires that you set up a "Supplemental feed" in your Merchant Center:
  • In the Google Merchant Center, select Products > Feeds
  • Click on Add supplemental feed
  • Give it a name like "CartRover Inventory" then select "Content API" and hit Continue
    • If the Content API option is not available, got back to the Feeds page and first setup a new Primary Feed and select Content API for it.
    • If the option is still not available after this, you must reach out to Google support to have them enable it.
  • Select all of your relevant Product Feeds and click Create Feed
  • Click on the feed you just created and copy the Feed ID into the CartRover Inventory Feed ID field (in the CartRover Google Shopping Edit Setup page).
  • Click OK to save your changes in CartRover.
