google's testing tool does not check for
the google-shopping rich-snippets rules.
<meta itemprop="availability" content="" />
<link itemprop="availability" href="" />

also, the price in the feed seems to be:
the price in google's specification would be:
22.80 GBP

also, the diagnostics-tab shows both current and historic issues --
issues that have been corrected may take several weeks to update.

importantly perhaps, rich-snippets are only needed
on the site if the automatic-item-updates feature is
wanted -- otherwise, the (optional) feature may be
disabled in the account and all such related issues
may simply be ignored.

otherwise, forum-members cannot look into any account --
but a merchant-center product-listing-ads support specialist
at google may be contacted directly to look into the account
and the related details of the issue to offer guidance.


a best-practice is not to make any changes

until after consulting with a specialist at google.
