Virtuemart Google Base Free Upload Component

froogle.pngAdd your products to Google Base with this bulk upload utility component. Ecom Solutions have developed a range of ecommerce components and modules for VirtueMart and other shopping cart systems. This component is their free component which they have very kindly issued for VM 1.0.15-ers to use gratis (free of charge)

The component originally stated it was for VirtueMart 1.0.12 but it works perfectly under later versions and has been fully tested under VM 1.0.15. I have made some code changes to the component so that it now conforms to the latest requirements of Google, in particular:

o The new 'condition' field is now created correctly
o The address format is now in the right order of street, town, postcode and country.
o The brand field is now created from the product manufacturer name instead of the vendor
o The product weight is now passed, a Froogle preferred field.
o The product price is now calculated correctly based upon tax and product discount


Please be aware that the component only generates a 'new' condition item. If you want to create a refurbished item then you can modify the code yourself or contact me.

The component allows a manual download/upload to be created once a month and this is the limiting factor on the free version. The paid for version of the component allows for an automatic update to be triggered so you don't have to manually trigger the process yourself once a month.

Please note that the feed does not like special characters in the short description as those characters stop the item from loading. The rules are:

o  no '&' or apostrophes in the short description text.
eg. you can't say "vinyl & rubber cleaner" or "this product's unique features"
