Hi - my 'Mindware Lab' Merchant Center Account has been suspended because of a 'policy violation', but none of us can figure out why. Where can I find out? I've gone through the requirements listed, and everything seems fine. I can't find any anomalies or violations. Thanks. Mark

generally, the merchant-center is mainly for submitting product-listing-ads,
for retail products that are kept physically in stock by the merchants who
sell them and can be shipped via direct-to-consumer shipping methods.

however, there are other ad-formats and campaign-types that exist
and may be a better fit for advertising certain types of products,
such as apps --

otherwise, forum members cannot look into any submitted data or accounts --
we would typically need specific information such as exact status information,
any exact messages, screen-captures, registered url, exact data submitted,
data-feed and account histories, etc, posted here within the public forum
[minus any personal or private information] to help diagnose any potential
issues or offer more specific suggestions.

otherwise, a support-specialist at google may be contacted directly for guidance.

Are you these guys, or the Russian one with the .ru domain? The answer ought to be obvious that if you are a Russian retailer your ads which are in English can not be approved and/or you need an English language website.
