Weird question but am i required to include product pricing in order to get a Google Merchant Center account and run PLAs?  Or is there a way to do the same without having to include pricing?

Right, I know that it says it in all of the documentation and thus that sounded like a dumb question but we have some instances where we do NOT want to show prices in our ads. It's part of a new strategy we're trying. Is there no work-around here? Datafeed/PLAs/dynamic remarketing ads must always contain a price?

submitted inventory data for product-listing-ads
must always contain a valid and accurate price --
there are no workarounds; there are no exceptions.

google decides all format and display of all submitted data.

there are other ad-types and remarketing verticals
that do not have such stringent requirements --
