Our brand sells single piece (product) but.,

we make it as a pack of 5 and sell them.

Problem:UPC available for single piece. But as we make it as pack of 5., we cant use the same UPC. 

Can anyone suggest how we can move forward ??

merchant-defined-pack-offers must submit the multipack attribute
set to the exact number of single items within the packaged-group --
then, follow the global-trade-data for a multipack and all multipack
related rules and policies.

bundled-offers must submit the is_bundle attribute set TRUE
then, follow the global-trade-data for a bundle and all bundle
related rules and policies.

a bundled-offer is a main item with several different items
bundled together as one single item-offer for a single price.

a merchant-defiend-multipack-offer is a custom-group, of the
same product, submitted as one item-offer for a single price.

a merchant-defined-multipack item-offer uses the individual
base-item within the specific multipack for global-trade-data.

a bundled item-offer uses the main product for global-trade-data.

all other rules for global-trade-data apply to both bundles and multipacks --
for example, if no proper global-trade-data has not been assigned by the
manufacturer then, identifier_exists FALSE must be submitted without
any brand, gtin, or mpn, data whatsoever, for that offer.

otherwise, forum-members cannot look into any submitted data for the details
required to make an assessment on the offer with respect to either a bundle or
multipack -- however, a merchant-center product-listing-ads support-specialist
at google may be contacted directly.
