OK this is driving me nuts. I have followed all the fields required by Google yet every varient of every product has "Disapproved: Violation of Shopping requirements". There is a link on the popup which takes me to this page

I have painstakenly gone through each "Required" item and checked to see if my product has that field populated with what Google wants. I cannot see any link or verbiage from Google or Shopify to tell me exactly what the "Violation" is. What am I missing?

Hi Don,

The issue may not be related to your product, but to your actual website. Google have some guidelines regarding to the content that should be included in the website in order to approve your Google Shopping campaign.

You can read Google's Shopping website guidelines in the following article, and make sure you meet all guidelines by Google.

Thank you for the reply. I have been looking at AdScale prior to your reply and will decide soon if we add it. What is confusing to me is it looks like we are satisfying the requirement. Other than contact information being displayed in the footer we do have a link to a contact us in the footer menu. Do you think we must have it displayed directly or is a link satisfactory?

And how do I resubmit the page to Google? They do not make that obvious or am I blind?

PS: The links you provided went to https and would not open in Chrome. When I removed the https it would open properly.
