Products invalid for Shopping

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

 

I need little help.

 

My feed has been processed and shows no error.

 

But when I see the products, it says "invalid or disapproved" for shopping.

 

What could be the error here?

 

Thank you.

feed processing is mainly for syntax and attribute issues --
rules and policy checks are done primarily after processing.

generally, a hand-inspection of the submitted data (feed) and the
website, against all current rules, policies, and recommendations
is usually required, possibly while working directly with google.

first, check the main dashboard within the
merchant-center for overall account status.

also, check the current-issues section under the diagnostics-tab for
specific account, data-feed, and items (website) issues -- by clicking
on each of the blue-boxed or flagged errors, warnings, or notifications.

also, check the specific feed status by clicking
on the data-feed's name under the feeds-tab.

also, check the individual item's status by clicking
on the item's title under the products-tab and
clicking on the link under the technical-details area.

also, check the emails listed under the settings-tab --
where google would send an email detailing the issues;
be certain google is not blocked via spam or similar filters.
and the always-send-results option is selected.

otherwise, forum members cannot look into data-feeds or accounts --
we would need more information such as exact status information,
any exact messages, screen-captures, registered url, etc, posted
here in the public forum [minus any personal or private information]
to help diagnose any potential issues and offer suggestions.

generally, google may disapprove an item, feed, or website at any time.

otherwise, simply contact google directly and ask for a
merchant-center, product-listing-ad, support specialist.
