Google Shopping, a dedicated platform within Google, allows users to discover and purchase products from local businesses and online retailers. Harnessing the power of reviews on Google Shopping can significantly influence potential customers to choose your products.

Today, we are delighted to introduce the feature that enables you to export product review data to an XML feed in Ryviu. This functionality streamlines managing and uploading reviews to your Google Merchant Center account (GMC). Please keep reading this article to learn how to export the XML file and upload your reviews on Google Shopping.
