The product feed is the primary way for you to provide Google a list of things to do products which will be displayed on various Google surfaces.
The supported upload format is JSON. Each JSON file must be a complete
ProductFeed object and may also be uploaded in a compressed format such as
ZIP, TAR, GZIP.
If there are too many products to be uploaded in a single file, You can upload
the data using multiple files by having the correct
FeedMetadata field in each
of the uploaded. Things to do processing pipeline will then consider those
uploads as a single feed.
FeedMetaData for the product feed allows you to split a large number of
products into multiple JSON files whilst still having Google treat the set of
JSON files as a single upload.
FeedMetadata in each JSON file of the same upload must contain the same
nonce value (Google will use
nonce to identify if the JSON files belong to
the same upload set) and the same
indexed) identifies the piece of shard this JSON represent in an upload and must
not be duplicated across the same upload. If a single JSON file contains all
product data, then
total_shards_count should be set to
Product and Option feed objects

title and at least one

various ways which a user can experience the product, different pricing options
