I made the mistake of setting up a google base feed, which interfered w/ eCrater sending my items TO google. I deleted that, and, only kept google checkout, which is fine. Any idea when my items will get 'fed' ? Thanks ! Very Happy

IF you have the same items listed somewhere else on the internet that is against google base terms = duplicate items.

As for when? We can only guess but I would say a week.
I would also suggest that you at least add one more item (or delete and add it again) just to trigger it.

No double listing.
I guess I need to wait for the new tweaks to hit.
I added new items today.
Very Happy

That has nothing to do with google product shopping search.

Why can't I get an answer.
Should I CLOSE the OLD GCO & open a new one ?
eCrater says they can't feed the items.
Account has been cleared @ G base.

I HAD used my eMail acct. for eBay data feed on g base. REMOVED all that. NO FEEDS, no ITEMS, nothing. Only use of gmail acct NOW is merchant acct. Still google says 'in use' (not true). Still eCrater says 'can't submit items' (no feed).

Would it be a good idea to:

Change eCrater eMail addy to NEW one.
REMOVE Google Merchant Acct from eCrater store.
Close old G checkout.
Apply for NEW G checkout.
Re-add when approved to eCrater.
Would THAT allow my items to be fed by eCrater to google.

The response from google was that 'some' authorized person w/ an eMail addy fleamarkit@ecrater.com (no such eMail exists, as I do not work IN eCrater) has to WRITE THEM w/ an ACCT #.

The submission of the same content at Google Base is not allowed. That includes the Bon*nzle feed of your products (which is showing fine at Google Product Search. I know. I just found them there). So if you have the same titles and descriptions here at eCrater, the ones from eCrater won't show even if the feed is being made. Google will only show one (usually the one that got fed first, which would be the info entered from Bon*nzle).

You need to change the title and descriptions of the items significantly for them to show from both feeds (so the content will not be seen as duplicate). However, if Google marked you down, that may not work.

And seriously we are not in charge of the exact operation of what Google does. What we say here is mostly based on experince with the system and some info on their rules. They don't spell out what they do when their rules are not obeyed. So it is a bit of guess work.


And BigTall is correct. Corrections take time. If you change something it would take 4-7 days before it gets changed at Google Product search. Don't expect instant results.

OK
Now I understand.
I moved the listings to Bonanzle, and, those that are on Bonanzle are4 interfering w/ eCrater.
So, I can take the next week to remove the rest of the Bonanzle listings, closing Bonanzle, which was just a backup copy.
Then, my items at eCrater will be unique.
I can redo titles, etc.
With any luck, they will reload.
Thank you.
At least I know the trouble.
Google never told me.
You are the best.
Thanks so much.

I forgot that ended items & closed sites can linger. I think there's a way on google to ask them to clear all that. That's what's causing the most trouble.

I am sorry I was snarky. I had been up all night w/o sleep, and not understanding what do do was making me crazy.

I appreciate all your free help.

Thanks again. Very Happy
