Specifying Free Shipping for Individual Items
We all know that a merchant can specify their global shipping settings in their Google Merchant Center settings. The problem is sometimes the shipping rates you charge can not be easily re-created in Google Merchant. For example, if you offer free shipping special on an item which would normally cost money to ship. Your shipping rules in Google Merchant may not necessarily be capable of reflecting this type of special. What can be done in this case? Can Intecca overwrite shipping costs with either different costs per item or free shipping per item? The answer is yes! Here is how:
1. In your Yahoo product table please create a new attribute of text type called intecca-shipping. The attached tutorial shows how to add a different attribute but the idea is the same: http://intecca.com/video-tutorial-how-to-add-a-new-field-called-merchant-category-to-you-yahoo-store-product-table/
2. After the attribute is created, fill out its value the following way:
a. for products with FREE shipping, use “US:::0” without quotations – please make sure it has exactly the same amount of columns as in this example.
b. For products with NO free shipping, either don’t put anything or put shipping value just for this product, i.e. “US:::5.95” without quotations.
4. Also, we should mention that this service requires Intecca advance service plan. The good news is this plan also includes Bing and TheFind feeds!
