Google Merchant Center Account creation problems

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I am trying to set up a Merchant Center account for a business and I am having trouble creating it. When I go to the merchant center page, it comes up with an error. Please see below:


Sorry, but users under eighteen years of age may not operate a Merchant Center account.


The account I am using has the Birthday set as 118 years old at present but I have tried many different ages - all over the age of 18. 


Please can someone give me an idea on how to enable the set up of the account?

Try using a different Google account / email. Than add the original email in the account after it's created.


Hope it helps.
