Hello! I'm getting conflicted info about what pictures are allowed on the Google shopping feed, some say it has to be on a white background while others are saying it has to be light coloured.

 

I've started shooting my product images and would like to know if the background and style I have picked is allowed on the Google shopping feed, any  advice would be hugely appreciated! Smiley Happy

 

Here is a link to the image background I tend to use

product image backgrounds must be

entirely white or entirely transparent.

 

the old policies did allow for light backgrounds --

the updated policies do not allow such leeway.

 

the posted example would not be allowed --

the item would eventually be assigned very

low quality, removed from the auction listings,

disapproved, or trigger a suspension, at any time.
