Where can I find a 'brand' for my flowers?

Hello,

 

My business is a flower shop and we have an online website with which I would like to create a product feed to add on merchant center and facebook. As you may understand, flowers don't have a bar code or a brand that I can use. What can I do? Should I maybe change the condition from 'new' to something else?

 

Regards,

 

Maria

simply submit the identifier_exists attribute, with a value of no
and do not submit any brand, mpn, or gtin, values whatsoever,

for all such item-offers.

for example, if the feed is a spreadsheet and all items submitted have
no global-trade-data, then simply delete the brand, mpn, and gtin columns
from the sheet, altogether -- and add the identifier_exists column, with
a cell-value of no for all item-offers.

condition has nothing to do with global-trade-data (unique-product-identifiers);
global-trade-data values (brand, gtin, mpn) are mainly legal designations that

are assigned by a manufacturer, to an item that is sold by multiple merchants;

condition mainly relates to the physical state of an item-offer -- condition and

global-trade-data (brand, mpn, gtin) are not connected in any way, whatsoever.

 

if valid global-trade-data has been assigned by the manufacturer,

then valid global-trade-data must be submitted by all merchants --

otherwise, submit identifier_exists with a value of no and do not

submit any global-trade-data, for the item.


condition is required and must reflect the physical condition of each item-offer.
