Google Merchant - Cannot use suggested verification methods

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

To set up my Google Merchant account they require me to verify the ownership of my url by either uploading a html file or adding a html meta tag to the websites code. As I have built my website on Wix, it is not possible to upload a html file or edit your coding. You can only add separate code pieces.


What can I do?

the verification and claim are separate steps.

verification is done via webmaster-tools (search-console):

if there is an issue with verification the best likely course is to contact
the hosting-company or ask within the webmaster-central-help-forum:!forum/webmasters!categories/webmasters/verification

after the verification has been made,
the claim can happen directly within
the merchant-center-account.


otherwise, a support-specialist may be contacted directly:

as an aside, there are additional landing-page policies for websites.
