Merchant Center Feed Errors

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have a feed with 85,000 products.  95 have errors, missing image.  Will google still process the products that are OK.  Or do all the products need to be error free for the feed to be approved?

the former.

depending on the violation or processing-issue, google will attempt to
process all the remaining items, that are ok, and meet all the current
specifications and policies -- missing-images should fall into this category.

 

check the products-list section within the merchant-center-account,

approximately 72-hours after items have been submitted, for a list

of products that have been processed and per-item status -- also,

check the main-dashboard and diagnostics-areas for more global,

account-wide, or website-related, issues and policy-flags.

however, any issues that have been flagged too frequently, or too many
flagged-issues over time, or any one serious policy-flag, may trigger a
more serious or permanent suspension from the program, at any time;

also, certain issues in submitted-data may stop processing altogether --

e.g. mixed-encoding, invalid-formatting, unsupported file-formats, etc.

a best-practice is to review all current specifications, requirements,
rules, policies, and recommendations, for a business, physical item
inventory, types of products, variants, the website, landing-pages,
e-commerce shopping-cart and secure checkout-flow, taxes and vat,
shipping and delivery, product images, and all submitted-data, with
respect to the target-country, shopping-ads and the merchant-center,
before submitting any items, so that there are no flagged issues.


generally, google expects high-quality data to be submitted

and adherence to all current rules and policies, at all times.
