Hello, 

(please like if your are struggling to publish reviews to google shopping ads too)

I am already displaying my product on shopping ads google and I would like to add reviews (the yellow stars that makes your thumbnail pop out and more profitable). on my dropshipping store, reviews are imported from aliexpress and other sources via "alireviews" app so they are not really genuine. 

Now alireview provides a feature in their "essential plan" that enables you to generate an xml file with the review feed to submit to merchant center for approval. 

In my merchant center I already have a "product review" section all I need is submitting a feed and wait for 2 to 4 weeks for approval

 

Do you know what I need to do to get my imported reviews approved by google? I don't want to wait 2-4 weeks for disaproval.

--->May be modifying the customer names, some words in the texts (so its not straight copy and paste), but the pictures too?

 

it seems to be really difficult to get fake reviews approved for google shopping any experience sharing would be appreciated!

Remove your imported reviews immediately. You will soon get banned for life. Importing reviews you did not collect is considered false info and untrustworthy.

with your method to collect customer reviews it takes a long time and a lot of sales, I already have reviews on my store they doesn't come from my sales but from aliexpress for the exact same product (but with longer shipping time), so its not really fake. 

if you upload fake reviews to google merchant center you will not get banned but your reviews will be rejected

I would like to know if someone has experience in this?

I specialize in Google Merchant Center, and I'm advising you if you continue with what you are doing, you will regret it. Expect a lifetime ban.

Reviews, you personally, via your website, did not collect from your actual sales, are considered fake.

It is clearly stated in policies here: https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/6098512

Do not submit reviews from other merchants.

Google doesn't care if it takes a long time. If you can do it, think of it as a competitive advantage. If everyone was easily able to do it, the benefit of having it diminishes.

I think you may be confusing Google Customer Reviews with Product Ratings. If you have reviews on individual products, this can be uploaded to Google as part of their product ratings program. See their policies for this program.

I got my product ratings approved from google merchant center. They were all imported from aliexpress, but I edited all of them one by one myself.
