Massive Flaws?
Products/Base boundaries a little fuzzy?

 3:29 pm on May 24, 2007 (gmt 0)

I've just managed to finally get my products to come up thanks to a lot of digging about and no thanks to Google's help centre.

I'm rather shocked at the untidy nature of the Products/Base process:

1: They don't make it clear you have to bulk upload to make the listing link directly to your site and not the Google Base listing.
2: They don't make it clear that you need to NOT have a location for your product to show up on Product search and not just Base.
3: They quite randomly switch between .com and .co.uk which is a problem as .com says I have no items and .co.uk says I have 40!
4: The .com/.co.uk problem also screws with currency listings!

I know its all free but does anyone else expect better from Google?

Hey, it's a Beta. Has been for years, will be for years! So we can avoid fixing it unless it makes us rich, but if it's working that well, well no need to fix it then is there?

But I don't consider it to be working well! =p

I mean the switching $ and issue is quite important.
