Can I list multiple products for items made to fit specific products?

I'm coming from ebay where I'm allowed to list the same product up to 5 times, as long as it's advertised it fits for a different model. For example, a replacement razor head that fits Model1, Model2, Model3, etc. On ebay, I'm allowed to list 5 of these. Here is their duplicate item policy for reference,

 

http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/listing-multi.html

 

 

  • Separate listings for items made to fit specific products, models, or brands—such as connector cables, phone chargers, or auto parts. You can have up to 5 fixed price listings per item for these types of products.

  • Example: The following 5 listings for identical phone chargers that fit only certain Nokia models, with each listing specifying a different compatible product, are allowed:

    • One listing with title "NEW 19 inch USB Charger Cable for Nokia N72 N79 N81 N78"

    • One listing with title "NEW 19 inch USB Charger Cable for Nokia N96 N75 N76 N77"

    • One listing with title "NEW 19 inch USB Charger Cable for Nokia N800 N810 N93i"

    • One listing with title "NEW 19 inch USB Cable for Nokia N80 ie N80 Internet Ed."

    • One listing with title "NEW 19 inch USB Cable for Nokia E55 E61i E65 E71 E72 E75"

 

 

Does that apply with Google product listing ads as well?

 

Thanks.

first, you're welcome.


the one-listing policy with respect to
products that are compatible with
other models/systems is addressed
under user-experience, landing-page,
duplicate-content, and related policies --

https://support.google.com/merchants#topic=3404779

https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/188484
https://support.google.com/merchants/topic/2700369

https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/2700314

 

"Merchants must only submit: .. One listing per products which are compatible with multiple systems (such as a memory card, a printer cartridge or car parts)."

 

inventory and related stock rules fall under

the product-data and availability policies --

https://support.google.com/merchants/topic/2701481

 

otherwise, a single inventory item could potentially be submitted hundreds

or thousands of times -- for example, a single hubcap that fits hundreds or

thousands of year, make, and model combinations -- that is not allowed.


disapproval and suspension fall under most all policy violations.

simply, no.

there is a one, single, listing per physical product policy.

one listing per product applies even for products that are compatible with
other items or systems and regardless of being listed on multiple websites.

compatibility information may be included in the product description.

global-trade-data (brand, mpn, gtin) must be from the manufacturer --
the manufacturer who actually built the physical product being sold.

the one, single, item listing that is submitted must be kept
physically in stock by the merchant who is selling the item.

Thanks for the input.

I checked the policies from the link you provided, and was unable to find the specific policy section that addresses this topic.
