Invalid Microdata for price and availability

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello everyone

 

I am managing a MC account for a client

 

I tried to activate the Automatic Item Update and then I got the errors below:

- Not performing automatic item updates for price

- Not performing automatic item updates for availability

 

The Microdata have been correctly applied by the client on their website and I have no explanation to give them why it is not updating

 

I would really appreciate if someone could help me 

 

URL example for one product: http://www.elcorteingles.es/libros/A4008754/

 

Thanks in advance

 

Adel

Hi Adel,

In order for the microdata to be valid it should show no errors in the Structured Data Testing Tool: https://developers.google.com/structured-data/testing-tool/

It appears that the current issue is that there is no Name for the product which is required. I believe that if this is added you should be good to go!

Hope this helps,
Jim

Hi Adel,

 

Have you checked your client's site on structured data testing tool? That would actually provide you insights on what the errors are. For example I entered the given URL and got this:-

You might have to explain this to your client to correct the structured data errors and then see if your merchant center feed is still getting errors or not. For more details you could also refer to this:- https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/6098131?hl=en

 

Hope this helps!
