NO GTIN Available

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello, we are an online retailer for Spare Parts of Tablets, Smartphones and Notebooks.

Most of Our Products do not have a GTIN available. We asked our Suppliers, Manufacturers etc. And GTIN's are simply not available. Nevertheless Google keeps Asking for GTIN's for certain products, and we can define our 600+ Products as custom products. Is there a permament way not having to tell Google every 2 weeks that there is no GTIN available? I guess not only we, but many other Custom Products, like Hand crafts and locally produced merchandise are facing this issue.


Thank you

Hi Simon,

In case if "No unique product identifiers available"

In rare cases where a brand name product has no unique product identifier (e.g. replacement parts), provide this information explicitly in your feed by specifying the 'identifier exists' attribute for that item with a value of 'FALSE'. If an identifier exists for the item but you don't have it, it's important to add the correct identifier to your feed instead of using the 'identifier exists' attribute.
