I'm having a problem with the Google Products Plugin not including GTIN's in the xml feed.

I've got a custom field whose column name is upcgtin which I use to store upc numbers.

I've got the plugin GTIN field set to upcgtin .

My feed uploads 172 products only a few of which currently have upc's.

Below is an example of the XML feed for a product that does have a value in the upcgtin field.

	<title><![CDATA[ Gatorade 2.5 Gallon Instant Powder Mix (Case of 32) ]]></title>

You need you configure the "identifier exists" setting accordingly:

Tells google if an identifier (brand, gtin, mpn) exists for your products (you can use either 'TRUE' or 'FALSE' and no other value is allowed). If you enter here the column name of a custom product field, it will use the value of the custom field for each product allowing you to have a identifiers for some products and not for others.

The GTIN can only be sent if the identifier exists is set to TRUE or to a custom product field with the value set to TRUE for the product. Otherwise, this would generate an error when importing the XML.
