Can custom attributes (<c in the feed) be used to subdivide products on Google Shopping, or are you only limited to the 5 custom labels (<g ) ?

Hi @Simon C

 

Firstly let me start this by saying, I am assuming you are speaking of the attributes

 

custom_label_0 - custom_label_4 which have the ability to hold information for use for subdividing your products within your Shopping Campaign?

 

If so, yes, you are limited to the 5 values.

If however, you are asking if you can use a custom attribute found here -

Then you cannot use these to subdivide your items within AdWords. 

 

Division can be carried out using the following attributes only

 

google_product_category

product_type

id

custom_label_0 - custom_label_4

brand

condition
