Hi

I am attempting to set up a product data feed using google.de to advertise and despatch goods from UK.

I obtain error on
shipping
GB::ROYAL MAIL:7

Although the default value in merchant centre seems OK

 

The second error on google_product_category  showing value

google_product_category
Elektronik> Kommunikation> Telefonie> Telefonzubehör.

please advise

regards
John

the same feed and landing-page cannot
be used for more than one target-country.

first, the website and e-commerce must be changed to
accommodate all rules and policies of the target-country --
then, the feed must be updated from the website data.

price, currency, and all other data must be
from the perspective of the target-country --
id must also be unique across all countries;
e.g. uk-123-abc, de-123-abc

 

if shipping is showing only a warning

then the warning may be ignored.

 

otherwise, shipping information must be applicable to the target-country.


the website e-commerce checkout process must also prominently state

that all customs and customs related fees are not included in the product

price or shipping-price where applicable -- before and during order placement.


google_product_category must be exactly
as google defines -- the registered feed
and all contents in the data-feed must be
in a supported encoding for the country;
e.g. UTF-8
otherwise, only for google_product_category
all values may be all u.s. english or the native
language of the target-country, but not mixed.

 

only product_type may be approximated or self-assigned.

 

machine language-translation and automated

price-currency conversions are also not allowed.
