Google Merchant Promotions
Google Merchant Promotions gives you the opportunity to highlight the benefit of purchasing from your store at the moment consumers are deciding where to shop.
This module includes Simple Google Shopping.
The Google Merchant Promotions extension allows you to enhance your Product Listing Ads with special offers by displaying your promotions directly in Google Shopping.
Consumers rely on Google to help them find the perfect product from the right store and at the best value. Merchant promotions give you the opportunity to highlight the benefit of purchasing from your store at the moment consumers are deciding where to shop.
As an example, Venus increased their click-through rate by 7% and decreased their cost-per-click by 11%.
In order to participate in the Google Merchant Promotions program, you need to follow 5 steps:
Create a promotions feed (visit the Merchant Promotions feed specification to learn more about the information you can submit in the feed).
Review Google's approval process.
The Google Merchant Promotions extension for Magento 2 allows you to create your promotions feeds easily and within a few minutes.
Our Google Merchant Promotions extension also includes Simple Google Shopping. To know more about that module, check out our documentation.
Configure the Google Merchant Promotions extension for Magento 2
Configuring the Google Merchant Promotions extension will take you a few minutes before being ready to use. You can easily follow the 3 below steps.
STEP 1: Configure the Google Merchant Promotions extension in a general way
You can first go in the Settings tab from: SystemSETTINGSConfig Wyomind Google Merchant Promotions
You'll be able to define your own settings:
Logo URL You can modify the logo URL or leave that field blank. By default, it uses the logo you've defined in your Magento configuration.
Data feed URL prefix You can define a prefix.
Data feed URL suffix You can also define a suffix. By default, the data feed URL suffix is "_promotions". So all your promotion files will end with: _promotions
Enable log You can enable the log.
Debug mode You can enable the Debug mode. The promotion data feed will then display additional data that will help you to easily debug your feed. We advise you to set that option to NO once your tests are passed.
STEP 2: Manage the promotions
Configure your cart price rules
You can create a new rule or choose one in: MarketingPromotionsCart Price Rules
In the Google Merchant Promotions tab, you can set Transferable to Google Merchant Promotions to YES to upload the promotion to Google Merchant.
After that, click on Save.
You can have a quick look at which promotions you've decided to upload to Google Merchant checking out the value in the last column named Google Merchant Promotions.
Configure your data feed
You should find a preconfigured template named GoogleShopping_full.xml, if you go to: PRODUCTSSimple Google Shopping
Edit that feed and set the Add a data feed for Google Merchant Promotions option to YES.
To retrieve the product promotion ids in the data feed, you need to add the below promotion attribute to the XML pattern:
This attribute is used to link your products to the promotions. You can add it to any feed you want.
To check the promotions ids that the attribute retrieves, click on PREVIEW. In the below screenshot, the attribute found one promotion with id 4, for the first product of our feed.
Note that the promotion ID won't be displayed in the data feed when item in cart conditions are added as there is no contextual data such as customer, cart or item in cart when exporting a product data feed.
A product can have only one promotion assigned. In the case where there are two promotions for one product, the promotion displayed will be defined according to the priority.
You can see two links from: PRODUCTSSimple Google Shopping
Products file link
Promotions file link
In the Link column, https://www.yourwebsite.com/magento/GoogleShopping_full.xml is the URL of your products data feed. If you click on that link, you should see all your products as on the screenshot below.
In the Link column, https://www.yourwebsite.com/magento/GoogleShopping_full_promotions.xml is the URL of your promotions. Here again, if you click on that link, you should see all the promotions you've decided to upload to Google Merchant Promotions.
This is displayed only when the Debug mode is enabled from the Settings tab in: SystemSETTINGSConfiguration Wyomind Google Merchant Promotions
Each promotion retrieves the information that Google asks such as the product applicability, the dates of the promotion display.
Generate your feed
When clicking on Generate, you get a notification to specify that the data feed has been correctly generated. You also get two URLs for:
The products file
The promotion file
You will need both URLs to upload your feeds for the first time to your Google Merchant account.
Have a look at our tutorial to submit your product feed to Google Merchant.

Enhance your Product Listing Ads with special offers by displaying your promotions directly in Google Shopping.
A license is valid for an unlimited period of time on one single installation
If you're using more than one installation, you will have to buy a separate license for each instance.
if you're running several domains on a same installation, you will need only one license for all of them.
Although your license doesn’t have a limited period of validity, your Support & Upgrade period does. By purchasing a module, you’ll be granted a 12-month support period for free. Passed this period, you will have to pay for a new one (see FAQ: Extend your Support period)
One license is valid for an unlimited period of time on oneinstallation only. However, it is possible to extend or transfer your license in 2 cases:
If you would like to add your testing environments to your license. In that case, it is possible to extend your license to an unlimited number of domains for free. For mywebsite-staging.com or mywebsite-dev.com
If you want to transfer your license to another live domain. In that case, the Support & Upgrade period for your license must still be active.
To be able to use Google Merchant Promotions on both your production and testing environments, follow the instructions below:
Once Google Merchant Promotions is installed, you have to activate the license. For previous versions, you can activate the license from your back-office:
Go to your Magento admin panel. A message pops up at the top of the page.
If the message doesn't appear then you must check that:
1. The Adminhtml_Notifications and Wyomind_Core modules are well enabled. 2. The HTML output of the Adminhtml_Notifications and Wyomind_Core modules are not disabled in: storesconfigurationadvanced advanced 3. The encryption key well exists in app/etc/env.php:
Copy your activation key in: StoresConfigurationWyomind Your extension
You can find your activation key in 2 different places: - In the confirmation email that you received after purchasing Google Merchant Promotions. - In your Wyomind account:My account Licenses & downloads Select Google Merchant Promotions and click on .
A new page opens where you'll find your activation key (see below).
In your Magento admin go to: StoresConfigurationWyomind Your extension
Paste the activation key in the Activation Key field and choose between the automatic (yes) or the manual (no) activation method: - By choosing Yes, the connection to Wyomind license server will be automatic. - By choosing No, you will have to log on to Wyomind license server yourself.
Click on Save config .
A message appears at the top of your admin panel. Click on that link: Activate it now!
Copy and paste the license code in theLicense code field from your admin or simply click on Activate now!
Finally, refresh your cache, log out and log in back straight after, to complete the installation.
When the extension includes other modules, repeat the steps described above for each one, using the corresponding activation keys (each module has its own activation key).
Add another domain to your license
To activate the license on another domain (test, staging...):
Once the extension is installed on the new domain, copy your activation key in: StoresConfigurationWyomind Your extension
After having saved the configuration, a notification appears. Click on Add this domain to my license.
A transfer request will then be sent to our team within an hour. Once the request is taken care of, you will receive a confirmation email. If your transfer request is accepted, you can use Google Merchant Promotions on both environments at the same time.
Note that the order in which you activate your license on your domains does not matter. You can start with your staging/dev/local environment or with your live domain, the process will be the same.
Also, if you have loads of staging domains, or if you are an agency managing load of domains for your customers, please contact us so that we can automatically whitelist these domains.
This has saved us loads of time, especially during busy periods like black friday! Just add the code to the simple google shopping feed, toggle it on for the promotional rule and it’ll get picked up by google no problems!

Makes Managing Google Shopping Feeds Nice and Easy!
The Simple Google Shopping extensions takes the hassle out of creating feed files. It's easy to navigate, customise, de-bug and use. The capability to set rules on what to pull into the feed, along with the category mapping against Google's taxonomy are fab! Plus support has also always been great!

Easy to use add-on
The Simple Google Shopping and the Google Promotions Add-on are easy to use and configure. I have only had some problem with the time taken to generate the feed, for large websites. Trying to optimize this. Support is excellent and very responsive which is a delight.

On the occasions we have needed support from Wyomind our support requests have been answered professionally, and very, very quickly. Following up has been even faster! No frustration of hanging around for numerous days or weeks for a response like we have experienced from some other companies. They understand the importance of quick customer support required to enable smooth running of your site. Probably one of the best extension companies for its customer support, its great to know they are there if needed. As per other reviews you can see that this level of support is not a one off. Well done guys. Fantastic and many thanks again.

Takes the hassle out of google promotions
Takes the hassle out of making a feed file of your latest promotional codes. Also really easy to tell Google about product specific promotions when used with DataFeed Manager. Have it set up to update every day.

Have used this extension for several years now and find it invaluable when sending our shopping feeds to both google and bing. It's very quick to run also and we have managed to customize this feed as well. Had an query recently and support got back to us quickly.

Excellent Extensions and Support That Is Second To None.
We've purchased 3 extensions from Wyomind, all of which suited our needs perfectly. Installation was a breeze and all perform flawlessly. We've since upgraded the extensions which went seamlessly. The Support from Wyomind however.....OUT OF THIS WORLD. Unlike any we have experienced before. Questions answered within minutes not days and any issues solved in record time. We would have no hesitation is recommending Wyomind and their extensions to anyone. When something works this well, I have no problems in paying for this level of service and quality. Well done guys, customer for life.

Simple to Use
After failing with a free PLA solution I researched my options and decided on the Merchant Promotions module to stand out in the crowd. Slight issue but Paul was able to fix immediately. Looks like the issue was implemented into the next round of Simple Google Shopping updates.
