Submission without GTIN

I've read numerous posts from this site and from what I can tell I need to include atleast two unique identifiers, such as GTID/MPN/Brand.


I've added a MPN and Brand name to each product but im still getting submission errors;


Insufficient product identifiers: Missing GTIN attribute..

Media items must have a value for the 'gtin' attribute. Please provide a valid gtin (UPC, EAN, JAN, ISBN-13). Please make sure to include this required attribute in your data feed.
Im using the Woocommerce Product Feed plugin to allow me to configure the unique identifiers and GTIN is unchecked.
If it makes any difference, most of my products a self written books with the same brand name (i.e a persons name and not a common 'brand name').
Any points would be greatly appreciated.

I think Google needs Books to have a ISBN assigned, a Brand and MPN is not sufficient. Based on the information you provided.

If you do not have a ISBN assigned, than submit Identifier Exists with the value no and do not submit brand or mpn. As you products are self written.


However make sure that the books indeed do not have an ISBN, check the cover of the books to see if it has any bar codes, if yes than submit the bar code (ISBN) in the GTIN field and assign a brand and set identifier exists to yes


Hope it helps.
