Google Shopping feed help

Hi

 

I am running a ecommerce website and the products are imported by a csv file hosted on my dropshippers ftp server and it gets updated by a cron job and I have submitted the google shopping feed to google shopping within the merchant center and it says 77/77 successful but got a couple of issues

 

1) It says 1 feed error - XML formatting error

2) 1 item error - Invalid GTIN value

 

I am unsure how to fix the above as the csv file is being used to import the products so I can't change anything in the csv file as is updated every hour

 

I am using opencart 2.0.3.1 as the ecommerce platform, can anyone help please

 

Thank you in advance

Generally, drop shipping is not aloud on Google Shopping. As you need to have product physically in your store.
