How to add price variations to feed

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello, I am filling up the feed in excel and  I am not sure how to add the price since it varies from 12.99 to 149. The listing has variations in quantities and it shows like that. example http://www.pinkthecat.com/store/p3137/Princess_Invitation_Baby_Girl_Shower_Birthday_Party_Gold_Glitt...

 

should I put 12.99 or 149 or 12.99-149?

 

I would appreciate very much your help. Thanks in advance.

first, you're welcome.

for account-specific support and guidance, google may be contacted directly:
https://support.google.com/merchants/contactflow

google may offer account-specific suggestions on how to remain in compliance.

as to those example urls, seeing an item listed does
not necessarily mean that a merchant is following
all google's policies -- potential policy violations by
other merchants may be reported to google:
https://support.google.com/merchants/contact/policy
note that google requires the exact, google-provided (aclk) link,
pointing to the retailer's landing-page, for a product-listing-ad;
e.g. on google-shopping -- the url must contain: aclk

the merchant's direct landing-page, or any other
links, are not enough for google to take action.

first, thank you for posting the current landing-page url.

all products submitted must be sold at fixed prices.

the product information submitted, must
match the product's landing-page, exactly.

only one, single, fixed, price may be submitted per a single item-offer.

not all variants of an item-offer are required to be submitted.

potential methods to come into compliance include --

(a) change the default offer on the page, so that only one price
is displayed and only submit that default item-offer and its price.

or, potentially, rearrange the content so that the default

is the most prominent and stands-out -- isolated, larger

font, above all others, etc., and then list the remaining

price-ranges, below, in a smaller font, for example --

submit only the default, most prominent, price.

 

adding microdata on the website, for the default item-offer,

and submitting only the default, may also help in this regard.

 

(b) preselect an exact item-offer using url-parameters and a server-side script;
e.g.
http://www.example.com/store/abc-invitation.html?color=pink&option=12-cards

(c) use a separate landing-page for each, made-to-order, item-offer;
e.g.
http://www.example.com/store/pink-abc-invitation-12-cards.html

(d) do not submit any item-offers with such variations --
simply remove them from the submitted data (feed) altogether.

otherwise, a merchant-center specialist at google may be contacted directly.

Thanks for your answer. I have seen many sellers doing this, for example

http://www.beeyondpaper.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=8979

and many more but another example

https://www.paperstyle.com/is-bin/Princess-Castle-Invitations-p-622-58-242EV

What am I missing to be able to do this? also big shops like etsy o ebay do the same (certain sellers) and they are also there.

Thanks in advance for your insights
