Merchant Center Error - Missing 'shipping weight' attribute.

Hi - I am setting up a small shopping feed with 10 - 15 items in Merchant Center. I've set up the shipping carrier to calculate based on zip code (Fed Ex Ground) in the shipping settings. 

 

I am getting an error that I am missing the shipping weight. All of my products are disapproved. I added the shipping weight column to the feed, all the items are 2 lbs. It's still getting disapproved. 

 

How do I fix this? 

 

Thanks for your insight!

What do the column name and the weight value look like in the feed?

I'm using the google sheets upload. I've tried the column name with and without the underscore.

 

Column Title: shipping_ weight

Value: 2 lb

The column header should be shipping_weight without any spaces.

Hope this helps.
