Sizing options on shopping results not appearing

Does anyone know why size attributes aren't showing on some of our client products?


Their product data feed has all the relevant size fields complete but when they do not show on the shopping results feed. They sell clothes and shoes and operate a standard pricing policy, e.g UK 7 / US 9


Is there a likely cause of this that I'm missing?

generally, be certain that the size and size_system
attributes are being submitted with accurate data for
the individual physical item and the target_country.


each (size/color/pattern/material) variant must be submitted separately
and must be currently in stock -- in the merchant's physical possession.

title must include a common-part for all variants within the same
variant-group; including variant information is recommended --
e.g. at least size and color

also, all variants in the same variant-group
must include an identical item_group_id value.


also, be certain accurate and valid global-trade-data are

being submitted -- if accurate and valid global-trade-data

currently exists from the manufacturer; otherwise, verify

that identifier_exists FALSE is being submitted without

any brand, gtin, or mpn, data for the item-offer.

also, verify each variant has a searchable status,
matches a product-group, and is assigned a bid.

google recommends that the link landing-page
preselect an exact, specific, variant item-offer.

otherwise, sizing options within google-shopping
are created automatically and dynamically by google
based on the submitted data, user search behavior,
and many other factors -- there is no way to force a
specific attribute or option to show in results.

Hi Joe,

unfortunately there are a few different possibilities for your problem. Without having a closer look at your data feed and your account settings it's hard to tell. Are there any error messages in your Google Merchant Center? Maybe those would help to localize the problem.

Many thanks for the replies. There's no error messages in the Merchant Center - if there, that would at least give us some clues!

I'll run through Celebird's points to double check everything is set-up as it should be.
