Temporary item disapprovals due to incorrect prices

Badged Google Partner

Hello community,

lately I'm receiving this error on my merchant center for one my US client.
The strange thing is that it always says for example: price in feed: 59.00USD, value on website 0.59USD...in other product it is 4.00USD and value on website it says: 0.40USD.

Whenver I check website there is correct value - I even check source code.
It is usually 5-15 products a day - not the same.
On the website there is a price in this format: If it is 59.00USD in feed, there is price: $59.00 on the website.

I've checked the recent purchases whether there are any suspicious prices in it - nothing.
I've also check products prices whether there will be any with price under 1 dollar and again nothing.

What might cause this kind of an error?

Thanks in advance

issues that may trigger an incorrect-price dissaproval or suspension include --

microdata is enabled in the account, but there
is missing or improper microdata on the website;

the feed data cannot be processed properly or
has an improper format; a proper price per the
current specifications would be:
59.00 USD

any variant items are submitted improperly;

any variant items are on the landing-page;

any id values are changed;

multiple target-countries are being submitted improperly;

there is more than one, single, price on the landing-page --
google recommends only one, single, price and one, single,
item on the landing-page;

the landing-page changes in any way based on any external variable --
such as the user's current location, ip-address, user-agent, etc;

the website has any scripting to generate the price;

the price format on the landing-page cannot be crawled properly;

the price on the landing-page is not prominent enough;

any delay, whatsoever, between a change on the landing-page
and the uploaded data (feed) being submitted or processed;

the item does not match a product-group;

google cannot properly crawl the site, at all times;

etc.

of course, forum-members cannot look into feeds or accounts --
without more exact information such as the exact feed entry,
the exact message, screen-captures, link url to investigate,
etc., it's difficult to be exact.

generally, the price submitted, the one, single, price on the landing-page,
and the default add-to-cart price, must all match, exactly, at all times,
or is otherwise a policy violation that can trigger a disapproval or a
(permanent) suspension, at any time.

otherwise, a support-specilist may be contacted directly.
