if valid gtin currently exists, then valid gtin and brand
must be submitted -- otherwise, such items cannot be
submitted, at all -- must be removed from the feed --
until the proper, exact, and valid, gtin and brand can
be found and submitted properly.
if valid gtin currently does not exist, then simply submit
the identifier_exists attribute with a value of no and also
do not submit gtin, do not submit brand, and do not submit mpn --
do not submit all three -- for that item-offer.
generally, carefully inspect the physical, in stock, inventory item,
for a valid gs1 gtin bar-code and corresponding digits -- that have
been stamped directly on the product or packaging, at the factory,
by the manufacturer -- to verify if valid gtin exists, or not.
invalid, inaccurate, or merchant-assigned, global-trade-data (brand, gtin)
cannot be submitted -- or is otherwise a policy violation and grounds for
disapproval or suspension, at any time; only a manufacturer may assign
legal, valid, global-trade-data, that must be identical for all merchants who
are selling that same item-offer.
note that if the physical, in stock, inventory item
cannot be physically inspected by the merchant,
that may indicate that some form of drop-shipping
supply-chains are being used -- which is generally
not allowed with respect to shopping-ads and is
grounds for disapproval or suspension, at any time.
