How do I change Products attributes ( Such as Identifier Exists ) in My Magento Shopping Data Feed

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have updated my shopping feeds while inserting products in my Magento inventory and now the GMC feed diagnostics shows that I have warning on Identifier Exists and Micro Data Missing. I have searched all over my Magento Feed settings and I'm not able to find a solution to that. Please Help.

the best likely course would be to ask whoever
is supporting the specific version of magento,
or magento-plugin, being used and also possibly
ask in the magento forums --
https://community.magento.com/

 

as an aside, generally identifier_exists is needed or allowed only if the item
being sold does not have any valid, legal, global-trade-data (brand, gtin, mpn)
as assigned by the manufacturer, usually stamped directly on the product.

 

if identifier_exists is set FALSE then, brand, mpn,
and gtin cannot be submitted for the item-offer.

 

micro-data relates to the website landing-page -- not the feed.

 

if micro-data exists on the website, then the best likely course

is to contact whoever is supporting the e-commerce website,
to verify all micro-data adheres to all google-shopping policies;
otherwise, such micro-data issues may simply be ignored and

the optional feature may disabled in the merchant-center-account.

 

google may report issues for the data being submitted,

or for the business, website, images, or supply-chain,

at any time -- some issues have nothing whatever to

do with the submitted data (feed).

Hi,

 

Thanks for the reply. 

 

I understand that I could use Magento forum if not here.

 

I just want to know how do I set Identifier Exists to " True " cause I have MPN Id from my products and change my Micro Data Feed values. I use Simple Shopping extension.

Thanks

first, you're welcome.

 

mpn must be from the manufacturer and

cannot be self-assigned by merchants --

if valid mpn and brand are submitted then,

identifier_exists is not required, at all.

 

micro-data issues may be ignored unless the optional

automatic-item-updates feature is wanted and the data

submitted differs from the micro-data on the website.

 

as to setting the values within magento or the plug-in --

generally, google does not support third-party systems

such as magento directly so the best likely course would

be to ask whoever is supporting the site and the exact

version of magento being used.

Hey Thanks a lot but What I'm looking for is that I have my products MPN defined but it says I have turned off the Identifier to " False " so I just want to turn into " True " How do I do that ?

the best likely course would be to contact

whoever is supporting magento for your site.

 

each version of magento or a magento-plugin

may be slightly different and the details for how

to change a specific attribute and value would

likely be slightly different in any particular case.

 

generally, google does not directly support third-party systems

such as magento and this forum is mainly for shopping-ads or

the merchant-center-account.

 

a feed-rule might be used, but that is not the best way to handle

changes that should be made directly within a third-party system

such as magento.

 

the best likely course would be to contact

whoever is currently supporting magento

for your specific website or magento-plugin.
