Item requires a GTIN

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi There, I have some issues with Google Merchant Center. I uploaded my products data feed in Google Merchant Center and I have mentioned 13 products (demo data), but only first 2 products on the data feed are shown in the shopping without errors. Rest of the errors are like GTIN required. What is the reason that only 1st two products are visible in the shopping but those don't have GTIN, MPN too.

The format used (id title Description google product category price link image link gtin mpn condition availability brand identifier exists(mentioned as FALSE), product group shipping weight). 

Thanks!

(a) google has no concept of demo-data with respect to product-listings --
any and all data submitted is considered potentially live and any policy
issue may trigger a disapproval or suspension from the program, at any time.

 

(b) global-trade-data (brand,gtin,mpn) must be from the manufacturer --

typically stamped directly on the physical item or package, at the factory.

 

if valid global-trade-data exists valid global-trade-data must be submitted --

all merchants selling the same item must submit the same global-trade-data.

 

(c) if global-trade-data does not exist for all items, then only submit
identifier_exists with a value of no -- and remove the brand, mpn,
and the gtin attributes (columns), altogether.

 

forum-members cannot look into any submitted data or accounts --
posting more specific details, here in the public forum, may allow

other forum-members to offer more specific suggestions.

 

otherwise, google may be contacted.
