Release Notes: September 2018 (2018.09)

Today we pushed the following updates to the stockinstore widget across all clients.

New Features

GMC & GLIA Integration

stockinstore now has the ability to integrate with Google Merchant Center. The integration populates the stockinstore Products table using a retailer’s data. The integration allows stockinstore to export/push data from stockinstore to GLIA via API using the Google Merchant Center product ID/UPI e.g. UPI, Product name, Description, Variations, ImageUrl and Stock Availability

This enhancement and integration requires the merchant to give the stockinstore service permission/access to the Google Developer Console.
