Hi @Padmaja R

 

For the color attribute, you are allowed to submit one value.

 

"dominant color first, then at most two accent colors"

"Limit the number of colors submitted to three values."

 

The listings you have displayed as examples? Are these multiple variants? If so, these should be listed as a variant using the Group ID attribute.

 

If these colors are due to the nature of the product having more than the one color, then you should include one primary color within the Datafeed.

You can only have a maximum of 3 combined colors per product.
