I follow all the suggestion to avoid approval delay by submit sitemap, google fetch, verify landing page and link.

Its been 10+ days now, still in pending.

My question is, will my shopify google shopping app daily submit data feed effect the approval process?

since i have new product daily, it submit new feed daily.

(a) if status is still pending after five full business-days, contact google.

(b) site-maps have nothing whatever to do with shopping-ads or related policies.

(c) use only one, single, feed -- do not submit new feeds.

use only the one registered feed, for all products, submitted for shopping-ads --
the one, single, registered feed may be used for up to 100,000 product items.

use the one feed for all updates -- including adding additional products,
deleting products, changing products, and any resubmits or re-uploads.

there is no need to register another feed -- unless
there are more than 100,000 products in inventory.

 

google tracks all items by id (inventory sku) -- regardless if the

api/shopify-app, or a feed-file is being used, any new item added

may trigger a re-review of items, images, and website, by google.


note that google may reinspect submitted data, images, landing-pages,
the entire website, e-commerce checkout-flows, the type of products
being sold, supply-chains, business details, related feedback from
customers, how the products or business is being represented to the
public over time, and any related websites or accounts, at any time.

 

some types of product offers simply cannot be used with shopping-ads.

if status is still pending after more than three business-days, a best-practice,
before contacting google, is to review all policies and verify that all submitted

data, images, landing-pages, the entire website, e-commerce checkout-flows,

the types of products being sold, supply-chains, business and business details,

how the products and the business are being represented to the public, adhere

to all shopping-ad related rules, specifications, requirements, and policies.

What to do if there is new product create in the website daily?

Do you suggest my google shop app link the data feed upload daily? or once a week is fine?

a new product in physical inventory

requires the data to be resubmitted --

how often is rather up to the merchant.

 

google may take 3-5 business days to evaluate a new product --

an upload of new products weekly, is usually more appropriate.

 

importantly perhaps, shopping-ads are most appropriate for physical goods --
that is, a user's purchase must result in the ownership of a tangible product.

 

the concept of adding a new product daily,

tends to indicate that the business-model

is not allowed and the products cannot be

uploaded for shopping-ads, at all.

first, you're welcome.

the act of waiting a week is not the determining factor --

but given google's policy review delay of 3-5 business-days,

controlling adding new products to weekly is often prudent.

however, the physical item is the determining factor with respect

to the policies -- one indicator of a potential policy issue is the

upload frequency for new products, but controlling the frequency

of adding new products does not change the physical item.

that is one reason why google's policy reviews may take longer,
with respect to certain types of products or certain supply-chains.
