Hi Rebecca,

 

Good question. The spelling in the Products Feed Specification is "color", so I recommend that you use that spelling. It's possible that Google has started to enforce the spelling more strictly and that's why you're getting the error now when you didn't get it before.

 

Here is a link to the Products Feed Specification: https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/188494?hl=en

 

Best,

 

John

Data feed attribute names are ether all US grammar or all native grammar and never a mix.

 

I recommend for simplicity to use US Grammar for whichever country you are targeting, as the attribute grammar does not effect any data feed quality or ranking.

 

hope it helps.
