This step is crucial, because the BBM needs the product data to begin the setup. You must copy and paste the URL of your Google Merchant Center product feed.
The BBM supports two formats:
- Text or tab separated formats (usually a .txt or .csv file)
- XML (compatible are the formats RSS 2.0 and Atom 1.0)

The BBM data handling is based upon the structure of the Google Merchant Center feed, so your feed should match those requirements.
Compulsory attributes for the BBM are: 'product_id', 'link' and 'availability'. All other product attributes can be filled with any text.
