Shipping & Tax

This option is available only when mapping for Google Shopping. Shipping is visible for all countries and tax only for US.

There are two ways to map shipping & tax:

  • map from input field - add new optional field shipping/tax and rename it from your source shipping/tax field 
  • create shipping/tax rule
    Click '+Add shipping'/'+Add tax' to add new shipping/tax. If you want to create your rules for multiple countries, you can add shipping/tax multiple times.

 

The first option is useful if your source feed is already in Google xml format and contains shipping & tax information. The second option covers every other case.

Shipping

For feeds targeting the US, UK, Germany and France, it is required to provide shipping costs for every item, either by specifying the global default shipping costs in the Merchant Center settings, or by providing this attribute. If you do not provide shipping costs using one of these methods for each item, your items won’t show up in Google Shopping results.

Name Requirement Description Examples
country required The country an item will ship to (as an ISO 3166 country code). The default value for this attribute is your feed's target country AU
region optional The geographic region that a shipping rate applies: in Australia, the three-letter state abbreviation NSW
service optional The service class or delivery speed Ground
price required Fixed shipping price (including VAT) 5.95 AUD

Tax

For items in feeds which target the US, use tax attribute if you want to specify taxes for a particular item, or you want to override the default tax costs specified in the Merchant Center settings. If you do not provide tax information using one of these methods for each item, your items won’t show up in Google Shopping results.

Name Requirement Description Examples
country required The country an item is taxed in (as an ISO 3166 country code) US
region optional The geographic region that a tax rate applies to, e.g., in the US, the two-letter state abbreviation, ZIP code, or ZIP code range using * wildcard CA, 946*
rate required The tax rate as a percent of the item price, i.e., number, as a percentage 5.00
tax_ship optional Boolean value for whether you charge tax on shipping, 'y' for yes or 'n' for no - the default value is 'n' y
