Merchant Account Suspended due to Inappropriate images

Our Merchant Account is suspended due to policy Inappropriate images. We are using watermark in our all products. Earlier we had removed watermark from our products and we were running campaign but at that time our competitors had copied our designs and were selling those products at lower rate than ours.


Is there any other way to run campaign with Watermark images or any other way to prevent copy issue. So that no one can copy our images and we can run our PLA campaigns.

Hi Niraj,

Google merchant center policy is very clear on watermarked images. You cannot have products that have watermarks on them.
It says in the policy "The following types of images are also not allowed - Images containing obstructing content (e.g. watermarks, brand names and/or logos) that overlay the product being sold"
