Individual Marketplace Sellers May No Longer Feed Google Product Search

Google's shopping search engine Google Product Search (Google Base) will no longer be accepting product feeds from individual sellers on marketplaces such as eBay and Amazon.

Instead, from December 1st, aggregators and marketplaces must use new "multi-client" accounts to submit feeds for multiple sellers. The accounts of existing marketplace sellers feeding Google will be "retired". More information.

The change should spell the end for the Google Base Store Connector, a tool for feeding marketplace listings to Google Base which, according to sellers, has not been working properly for several months.
