Details

Google Base is the engine that powers Google Product Search. It is the most popular free price comparison site on the web. It is almost always essential for a successful e-commerce site to be listed on Google Product Search.

This module would only be necessary for somebody who uses the eBusiness Commerce module. To submit their products to Google Base they would need to reformat the spreadsheet that they use to load products into i-ntarsia so that it fitted the Google format. In additions they would need to add URLs for every product page and for every product image on their site.

It is very time consuming to format the I-ntarsia® spreadsheet into the Google format. This module does it for you automatically at the push of a button. It can also automate the production of the file so that a Google schedule can be used to keep Google Base up to date. For fast moving businesses, there is also an 'instant update' option which inserts products into the Google database using the Google API.
