Google Listings & Ads

Reach millions of engaged shoppers with Google Ads. Drive more sales with Performance Max, sync your products to Google Merchant Center, and turn more shoppers into customers.

Add a setting to customize product id “gla_” prefix

Google Listings & Ads adds by default “gla_” prefix to products being added to Google Merchant Center (as stated in plugin faqs https://woocommerce.com/document/google-listings-and-ads-faqs/#section-24).

This default behaviour should be customizable by the user with a new feature in plugin settings that allows to change or even totally disable the prefix.

The current default behaviour breaks the correspondence between the product ids being sent to Google Merchant Center by Google Listings & Ads plugin and the conversion tracking events sent by other plugins like “Woocommerce Google Analytics Integration” that sends plain product ids.

The issue is described in details here:

https://wordpress.org/support/topic/100-of-id-values-received-dont-match-your-feed-2/

And has already an opened Git Hub issue here

https://github.com/woocommerce/google-listings-and-ads/issues/1770

All this issues could be solved by adding a prefix customize feature in plugin settings.
