Shopify Google Shopping: My products Have Been Pending Forever

I'm trying to get my products  approved on the Shopify Google Shopping app, but they have been pending for weeks. I've already filled out the Google Shopping fields except for the MPN or barcode because I am dropshipping. I contacted my suppliers and they said they don't have a barcode. Is there any other way to get my products approved? I tried calling Shopify and they told me I need a MPN or barcode or my product has to be custom. I tried calling google and they told me to call Shopify, and yes I have a privacy policy, terms of service, refund policy, shipping rates, address and taxes set up, but my products are still not approved. Is there any other way to get my products approved?

Unfortunately, drop shipping is not allowed on Google Shopping as this is considered affiliate marketing.

 

You can only advertise for goods that you have in stock in your warehouse.

Hope this helps.

Hi @Justin51 

 

it needs to be added in the google sheet

or go to app of google and do this

Product identifier

A custom product is a unique item that doesn’t already have a GTIN.

Click this is custom product

You can do drop ship on Google shopping. However, your items have to be product that has a GTIN (UPC / EAN..ect) for it to work. That is the issue here.. not that it's drop ship.

That is wrong Duane.

 

identifier_​​exists is an optional attribute (if your product does not have a gtin or mpn). The default value is yes if you do not submit the attribute. If you provide a gtin or mpn value, the identifier_​​exists has to be yes. Most people setting up a feed for the first time have trouble with getting the gtin, mpn, and identifier_​​exists correct.
