@avigreen I mean you have no Google map integrated.
1. I integrated google map (No idea if this is related buuut...)
3. Adding shipping info in product detail
After trying one more time.
6. Make sure the terms and conditions, refund, and shipping policy website pages matched the Shopify checkout pages (they need to match but are managed in two different spots in Shopify)
Can you give me more context on what this means? I moved to Woocomerce now but anyway. Trying to figure out
Would you mind sharing the URL of your site?
It would be extremely helpful for the rest of us to know which types of guidelines to follow by crosschecking websites that have been recently re-accepted by Google.
It's a real headache that Google is being unreasonably stringent with their approval, no matter how genuine the business is.
Appreciate the help!
On two Stores I used Google Shopping Feed app from Shopify, and both of those stores (MC) got suspended and brought down my Ads account with them. I managed to get tha Ads back. But as I said earlier, I had a store running since August, pretty much the same Policies and layout... I just used Manual feed for the 1st one.
Absolutely. Same thing happened to me. Was running ads via Google Shopping successfully from February 2020 until August 2020, and then out of nowhere, the merchant centre got suspended and it still hasn't been reinstated despite so many changes and multiple reviews. Even if Google are cracking down on Dropshippers, my website is a 100% UK registered business with a UK warehouse and our own branded products, so none of this makes sense and Google doesn't offer any meaningful support.
We really do need to band together to as Google is treating small businesses unfairly. I have reported this to the Competition and Markets Authority (in the UK) as I strongly believe this is anti-competitive behaviour. For a company this large that owns the majority of online traffic, this kind of behaviour where they simply ban businesses from their services without providing a clear explanation, can't be right...especially during times like now where small businesses are already suffering from the effects of COVID-19.
What you are suggesting would be a start definitely, as this is clearly happening to small businesses.
If you ever check other bigger sellers in Google Shopping, you would realize that they aren't following even half the Google Shopping policies, yet they are allowed to advertise.
Why? Because they are the big players.
Would you mind also sharing your website URL?
It would be good to know if the site is 100% compliant, which will even further cast doubt onto Google's trustworthiness.
