Made to order items ?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi, I am I understanding this correctly? I can only sell items that are already made and in stock?

I sell made to order custom items with 2-4 week build time. Thanks

only a completely configured product,
or an individual part, may be submitted
as an item-offer, for product-listing-ads.

 

only best-selling completely-configured item-offers

may be submitted; not all possible configurations

or all possible customized variants.

the full and exact price submitted, the one price displayed
on the link landing-page, and the default add-to-cart price,
for a completely-configured item, must all match exactly,
at all times.

the item-offer must be delivered in a timely manner.

the identifier_exists attribute with a value of FALSE
must be submitted without any other global-trade-data --
no brand, no mpn, no gtin -- is also required.

 

practically, the fully-built product does not need to be in stock;

but, all the pieces needed to make the completely-configured

product must be in stock or readily available, so the item-offer

can be ordered, built, and delivered in a timely manner.

 

one strategy, and a simple way to satisfy all the rules and
policies, is to submit only already-made, in-stock, item-offers --

especially for items that take more than a few days to build.


however, there are many other campaign-types
and ad-formats that are currently available,
do not have such strict rules and policies, and
may be a better fit for advertising such items --
