Hello! New to the forms.

 

I'm getting this warning on my feed: Invalid or missing recommended attribute: description.

 

I've got 17 products, all with descriptions. Looked into the Google standards and couldn't tell what rules I was breaking. Here's the feed:

TIA for the help!

beginning with about item number four,

there are no description attribute values.

 

also, price should contain a valid three-letter iso currency code;

e.g.

123.45 USD

123.45 GBP

etc.

 

also, a best-practice is to use a mix of both letters and numbers for id.

 

check both on the website and with the developer

of the plug-in/add-on/extension that is being used.
