How to save google merchant feed to xml file


I purchased your google merchant center feed module and i wonder how i can save feed to xml file and update it with cron job to update products in google? 



module workflow allows to generate and share feed in several ways. 
  1. save feed to .xml file,
    when this option is active: 
    each time you will run cron task with url (long or short that after save is available here: ) generated by module feed will be saved here:
  2. feed downloaded in back office
    When you save feed settings you can use "save and export" button: 
    feed will be generated and downloaded to your computer
  3. feed available on-line (by url)
    when this option is DISABLED: 
    the url to feed that module generates (both long url and short) can be used to generate and download the feed
What option to use?
it depends on your requirements.
if you expect to create scheduled fetch (google will conntect to feed, download it and update products) i recommend to use last option (3).
just use the feed generation url in google merchant data source settings and this should be enough.
