Setting Google Shopping Sellers Tasks

‌‌
Google Shopping Sellers endpoint will provide you with the list of sellers that place the specified product on Google Shopping. The provided data for each seller includes related product base and total price, shipment and purchase details and special offers. The results are specific to the selected location (see the List of Locations) and language (see the List of Languages) settings.

Note: before setting a task to this endpoint you need to receive the product_id value. You can receive this value by making a separate request to the Google Shopping Products endpoint.

There are two different priorities that stand for the relative speed of task execution: normal and high.

Instead of ‘login’ and ‘password’ use your credentials from https://app.dataforseo.com/api-dashboard

<?php
// You can download this file from here https://cdn.dataforseo.com/v3/examples/php/php_RestClient.zip
require('RestClient.php');
$api_url = 'https://api.dataforseo.com/';
// Instead of 'login' and 'password' use your credentials from https://app.dataforseo.com/api-dashboard
$client = new RestClient($api_url, null, 'login', 'password');

$post_array = array();
// example #1 - a simple way to set a task
// this way requires you to specify a location, a language of search, and a product_id.
$post_array[] = array(
   "location_name" => "United States",
    "language_name" => "English",
    "product_id" => "1113158713975221117"
);
// example #2 - a way to set a task with additional parameters
// high priority allows us to complete a task faster, but you will be charged more money.
// after a task is completed, we will send a GET request to the address you specify. Instead of $id and $tag, you will receive actual values that are relevant to this task.
$post_array[] = array(
   "location_name" => "United States",
   "language_name" => "English",
   "product_id" => "1113158713975221117",
   "priority" => 2,
   "tag" => "some_string_123",
   "pingback_url" => 'https://your-server.com/pingscript?id=$id&tag=$tag'
);
// example #3 - an alternative way to set a task
// after a task is completed, we will send the results according to the address you set in the 'postback_url' field.
$post_array[] = array(
   "location_name" => "United States",
   "language_name" => "English",
   "product_id" => "1113158713975221117",
   "postback_data" => "html",
   "postback_url" => "https://your-server.com/postbackscript"
);
// this example has a 3 elements, but in the case of large number of tasks - send up to 100 elements per POST request
if (count($post_array) > 0) {
   try {
      // POST /v3/merchant/google/sellers/task_post
      $result = $client->post('/v3/merchant/google/sellers/task_post', $post_array);
      print_r($result);
      // do something with post result
   } catch (RestClientException $e) {
      echo "\n";
      print "HTTP code: {$e->getHttpCode()}\n";
      print "Error code: {$e->getCode()}\n";
      print "Message: {$e->getMessage()}\n";
      print  $e->getTraceAsString();
      echo "\n";
   }
}
$client = null;
?>

The above command returns JSON structured like this:

{
  "version": "0.1.20200416",
  "status_code": 20000,
  "status_message": "Ok.",
  "time": "0.0883 sec.",
  "cost": 0.002,
  "tasks_count": 1,
  "tasks_error": 0,
  "tasks": [
    {
      "id": "04171157-0696-0183-0000-4f63affdd40a",
      "status_code": 20100,
      "status_message": "Task Created.",
      "time": "0.0067 sec.",
      "cost": 0.002,
      "result_count": 0,
      "path": [
        "v3",
        "merchant",
        "google",
        "sellers",
        "task_post"
      ],
      "data": {
        "api": "merchant",

        "location_code": 2840,
        "product_id": "1113158713975221117",
        "priority": 2,
        "se_type": "shops_list",
        "device": "desktop",
        "os": "windows"
      },
      "result": null
    }
  ]
}

All POST data should be sent in the JSON format (UTF-8 encoding). The task setting is done using the POST method. When setting a task, you should send all task parameters in the task array of the generic POST array. You can send up to 2000 API calls per minute, with each POST call containing no more than 100 tasks.

You can retrieve the results of completed tasks using the unique task identifier id. Alternatively, we can send them to you as soon as they are ready if you specify the postback_url or pingback_url when setting a task. Note that if your server doesn’t respond within 30 seconds, the connection will be aborted by timeout, and the task will be transferred to the ‘Tasks Ready’ list. The error code and message depend on your server’s configuration. Watch the video to learn more about using pingbacks and postbacks with DataForSEO APIs.
