If you are using Google Product Search you must login to the Google Merchant Center before September 22nd and configure Tax & Shipping. Google will remove your items from Product Search if you have not configured Tax & Shipping before September 22nd. No changes are required in your RPMWare account.
On September 22nd Google will stop processing data feeds that do not comply to new, more strict requirements. The data feeds that we produce as part of the RPMWare Marketing Toolkit have been compatible with the new Google standards for a few weeks now. Your feeds will not be rejected when Google discontinues support for the old file formats.
There is one step that we cannot complete for you. Before September 22nd you must login to the Google Merchant Center and configure Tax and Shipping for your data feed. To make this as simple as possible we include shipping weights in your feed so you can use carrier calculated shipping. The entire process should only take a few minutes. Google’s provided instructions are posted here.
