Posting Rules
This forum was created to help 3dcart users share tips on getting the best out of the service, offer knowledge and experiences about e-commerce in general, and to promote a positive environment in which our merchants can request/dispense advice regarding best practices.

The forum was not created for 3dcart users to submit requests for customer support. Any support related thread will be removed and a support ticket will be placed on your behalf. If you have technical difficulties please visit

The 3dcart forum is also not intended to be a medium in which to express dissatisfaction about 3dcart’s service, policies or its management and staff. Threads of this nature will also be removed from the forum. If a support issue with your 3dcart store was not resolved in a satisfactory manner; or if you feel that a particular 3dcart offering/policy is not to your liking, please let us know by emailing so we can address your concerns directly.

Again, our purpose is to cultivate a positive learning environment for our merchants rather than platform in which to express grievances.

Very Important Rules:
• Never give away your store administration login/password in this forum.

Should you need technical help, please let 3dcart staff help.
Also, please be aware that 3dcart staff will NEVER need to ask for your 3dcart related passwords.

General Rules:
• While debate and discussion are acceptable, we will never tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks or inflammatory posts. Our decision is final in these matters.
• Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short) nonsensical posts, or similar postings.
• Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed.
• Advertising, spamming and trolling is not allowed. This includes using the forum email and Private message system to spam other members.

• We reserve the right to remove offensive posts without notice.
• We also reserve the right to remove postings which are in violation of our specified posting rules
• Also, while these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently, we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.
• You cannot post any affiliate or referral links, or post anything asking for a referral. Such posts will be subject to removal.
• You cannot post advertisements or notices for contests.

  • Google Feed

    Just set up my Google Feed. Wondered if others using it could answer a couple of questions:

    1. Have you gotten the "upload" function to work - I get an error whenever I try to use it -- I have to download and manually send the file to Google.

    2. Is there a way to exclude certain products from the feed/publish?

    Yes, I've had the upload option working for quite awhile. Actually I just recently setup everything so that google fetches the feed every month rather than doing the upload.

    This what I did to set this up

    3dCart Side

    1. Under the Google product settings I used "" for the server name.
    2. Created a file such as example.txt.

    Google Merchant Side

    1. Create a feed and select "Upload" for the input method.
    2. Then enter the same file name (example.txt) that you created on the 3dCart side.

    After this is done, then go back to 3dCart and generate the feed and finally click the "upload to google" link. It usually takes a few minutes to show this in the Google merchant account.

      Thanks but whenever I try to upload from 3dCart I get:

      **Google PLA: You can only upload one file every hour. Try waiting at a couple hours before trying to upload the file again.
      Ensure that your filename does not contain spaces. The name of your file should exactly match the name of the filename you registered in your Google Base account.

        It would be interesting if someone from 3dCart could comment on this -- 3dcart-Carlos or others -- but I had a ticket open about this issue and the answer was "well, you need to purchase an add-on to make this built in feature to work." I'm paraphrasing the answer, but essentially the "upload" feature of the module won't work unless you purchase the $50/month automatic google feed service ???

          Okay -- Support got back to me after asking about this on my ticket -- seems that Google assigns a different Username for FTP and SFTP and that seems to be the issue why I was getting the error. We'll see.
