Unit Prices (US Only) attribute product feed clarificaton

Hi,

We received a warning that over 700 of our products are missing the unit pricing measure. We have reviewed the updated Google Shopping feed specifications and would like some clarification on the Unit Pricing recommended attribute. First, we don't use the unit price measure with our products, but many of our products fall into the Food and Beverage category that is listed in one of categories affected by this update. We have food gift baskets, gift boxes and other containers that can have variety of food.

Here are a few examples of errors that we received for not having this attribute.

1. One gift box might consist of four different cheeses and four different sausages and in some cases in different sizes or weights. http://www.wisconsinmade.com/gift-ideas/Cheese-Summer-Sausage-Supreme-Gift-Box-4750.aspx?ref=googlep...

2. Another example, is that we sell  is a Gourmet Popcorn Seasoning Six Pack - which has six different seasonings in six containers and the weight and size of each container is the same. It has a retail price of $21. So would we have to have an unit price of $3.50 in the feed? http://www.wisconsinmade.com/gift-ideas/Popcorn-Seasoning-6-Pack-4052.aspx?ref=googleps

 

3. This particular example is one unit, so do we include the unit price as the regular price of $69.99 http://www.wisconsinmade.com/gift-ideas/Chocolate-Shoppe-Ice-Cream-3-Gallon-Pail-4049.aspx?ref=googl...

 

Thanks!

Sue

(1) and (2) for the cheese and seasoning, is_bundle should be set
TRUE while identifier_exists should be set to FALSE without any
mpn, brand, or gtin values -- then, contact google to ask for an
exception or guidence with respect to unit_pricing_measure and
unit_pricing_base_measure since items in the bundles look to be
a mix of different units.

be certain to emphasize that the issue
relates to a merchant-center (feed) for
product-listing-ads (shopping-campaign).

price should be for the entire bundle, the default add-to-cart price --
38.99 and 21.15

(3) the ice-cream:
unit_pricing_measure
3gal
unit_pricing_base_measure
1gal
price
69.99
