MPN's with letters

Hey there.


I am currently making my first feed for Google Shopping.

However, a lot of our products have letters in their MPN-numbers, which Google doesn't seem to like.


How do I handle this?

mpn must be directly from the manufacturer
and the same value for all merchants who

are submitting that same item.

self-assigned, approximated, or invalid
global-trade-data (mpn, brand, gtin) are
not allowed, will not be accepted, and is
otherwise grounds for disapproval or a
suspension, at any time.

simply do not submit such mpn.

either submit valid gtin and brand from the manufacturer,
stamped directly on the product or package, at the factory
or, if the required, valid, global-trade-data does not currently
exist simply submit identifier_exists FALSE and do not submit
any global-trade-data (mpn, gtin, or brand) data whatsoever.

google only wants global-trade-data that currently exists,
is valid, accurate, and correct,, has been assigned by the
manufacturer who actually built the item, and is the same
for all merchants selling the same item.
