we have a 108 products upload on Google Merchant through the Google Shopping app.
Now they are all approved but below it still says: 'Pending initial review' since over a week.
When I look at specific products, it says they are active. Can anyone help? Are we doing something wrong?
We want to use Google Shopping to drive traffic within a Google Shopping campaign.
Thank you already in advance.
All the best,
This normally takes between 3 to 5 business days. So most likely you have issues that need resolving.
Go to Google Merchant Center > Products > Diagnostics and check what errors you have, and resolve them.
Make sure you have shipping details added and that your website has a policy page, terms and condition, delivery page, returns page and a contact page with businesses address, telephone, email and contact form.
When you have double checked it all and resolved issues, fill out this form: https://support.google.com/google-ads/contact/processing
Do not fill out the form, without doing the basic checks and ensuring you follow Google policies.
Hope this helps.
Please note that Google Shopping does not allow drop shipping or print on demand. And goods need to be stocked in your warehouse, reference: https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/6150127#:~:text=Unavailable%20promotions
With regards to GTIN, you can create feed rules in Google Merchant center to clear gtin, mpn and brand values and set identifier exists to no
I came across your issue with regards to the gitn, we have developed an app that will map the gtin with any other custom field. Even if you do not have any gtin we will pass a null value to google merchant center which will prevent you from getting any kind of error.
You can download Easy Google Shopping Feed by AdNabu for Shopify, your feedback will be appreciated.
