Hand made items

These hand crafted items have no 'Brand name' or MPN number.

Have used the identifer_exists false as indicated in google notes, but data feed results still ask for 'GTIN', BRAND AND MPN details.

What am i doing wrong?

Hi Richard,

A couple possibilities:
1) Does the identifier_exists attribute comply exactly with the feed specs? I noticed that "identifier" was spelled wrong. https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/188494?hl=en

2) Did you provide values for either the gtin, brand or mpn attributes for any of the products that have the identifier_exists attribute set to false? If so then they should be deleted as this will cause an issue.

3) Lastly, are you certain that these products don't have any identifiers at all? Some merchants will try to set the identifier_exists attribute to false if they can't find the correct unique product identifiers even if they exist. The diagnostics system will generally catch these products and disapprove them.

Lastly, if none of the above are issues then I would request a manual review of your disapproved products. See steps here: https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/1678274?hl=en

Hope this helps,
-Jim

Keep Indentifier_exists as FALSE. Add new column as MPN, you can add product id as MPN.
