Product URL different in Google shopping compared to Google Merchant?

Several of the products in my Google Merchant Centre have the correct url, set in the feed however in Google shopping the products go to a different page. Why is this?


I should note, that these products have been updated and the url in Google shopping is the old url, not the new desired one.

google may sometimes take 24-72 hours or so
before submitted data is updated in shopping.

also, be certain that id (attribute) values for the items
never change and are never reused for any other item --

id changes will cause information to update improperly.

also, check the item's link within the products-tab of the
merchant-center-account by clicking on the item's title.

importantly, be certain physical inventory does not exist on, and is
not being submitted from, any other marketplace, site, or venue --
e.g. (automatically from) nextag, pricegrabber, etc.

not only may this cause improper links or discordant updates, but is also

a policy violation and grounds for disapproval or suspension, at any time;

generally, be certain inventory data is submitted from only one account.

otherwise, forum members cannot look into a feed or account --
posting an exact entry from the data-feed, an exact ad url from
google-shopping, and a partial screen-capture for the item from

the account's product-tab, may allow us to investigate further.

otherwise, the best likely course is to contact google directly,
so a person can look into the data-feed, website, and account.
