Do attribute columns require all lower case and/or with underscore to show your shopping ads?

I noticed that all my feeds have a capital for each attribute. Shopping ads are showing. Should I change to lower case? Example:

Google Product Category to google_product_category

Title to title

 

Does it make a difference?

If Google Merchant is correctly loading the data, than no this is not important for spreadsheets. However for XML it might fail. The best likely course is to follow the examples and documentation of Google Merchant to avoid any future issues that Google might introduce.

 

Hope it helps.

Manually downloading text tab delimited file(s) to merchant center.

So google will still show products...or should I be sure all lower case, exactly as google shows attributes?

It is recommended to follow the defaults of Google Merchant documentation. Here is an example : https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1c6dQwJfVbMP1vFwFJE93tTXfUvsAm54OvY0YQw84VjI/edit?usp=sharing

 

As you will see for the category it is google product category and not google_product_category

 

Hope it helps
