I have upgraded my all old PLA campaigns into new Google Shopping Campaigns but my Google Adwords account getting regular notification about "You have some PLA campaigns so upgrade before Aug 31, 2014."


Why it is happening? I am little unhappy with it.


Is it just a general announcement or I am still missing something!!


Help me.

(1) be certain no items are in both an
active product-listing-ad campaign
and a shopping-campaign -- all items
(that you wish to bid on) must be in
an active shopping-campaign and
all associated product-listing-ads
campaigns must be at least paused.

typically, regular product-listing-ads-campaigns should
first be enabled and any shopping-campaigns should be
paused; then, review and adjust the new campaigns and
swap the status only after being satisfied with the new
campaign structure and details.

(2) wait 24-72 hours or so for all items
to settle in an active campaign -- the
(feed) data may need to be resubmitted
after any new campaigns are created.

be certain the feed is updated if any
shopping-campaigns require new or
updated attributes (e.g. custom_label_0).

(3) if the message is still seen then, the best
likely course is to contact a product-listing-ads
specialist at adwords so they can look directly
into the submitted data and both accounts.

a google-adwords representative from the
google-ads-team may be contacted here --

be certain to use the drop-down country menu, and the
drop-down language menu, to display the appropriate
contact details for your country, language, and time zone.

when contacting adwords, be certain to emphasize strongly and
immediately that the issue is concerning "product listing ads".
