Where and/or how does one add the identifier_exists field to Google Shopping channel inside Shopify?

We don't have barcodes, and our submissions are being rejected. I see the solution is to input false for identifier_exists field, but it isn't an option nor do I see it as an option to add as a field.

Dear astroblade,

 

You can use it at google sheet by adding "identifier_exists" as a new column and give value as FALSE

You can use feed rules in Google Merchant Center. Choose identifier exists as the target and set it to no

Then also clear brand, mpn and grin attributes.

Hey Emmanuel! 

 

I'm hoping for some clarification. If I set up a feed rule for identifier exists and set it to no, will it mess things up if I still have a brand attribute?

Yes,

Here is the rule:

When submitting product identifiers the following rule applies.
If a manufacturer has assigned a bar code, then submit brand, mpn (if available), GTIN and set identifier exists to yes.
If the manufacturer has not assigned a bar code, then remove the values brand, mpn, gtin and set identifier exists to no.

Hi 

Thanks for these answers! I have a mixture of products with barcode and custom products - so I am thinking that a google sheet as a secondary feed is the way to get identifier_exists applied to my sub-set of custom products. Why do I need to remove my brand name from this sub-set?

Thanks

Kerry

Otherwise you get limited by product identifier warnings.

For example in my application, you can import all data, then edit the attributes in the editor, so that you can easily manage everything in one area.

Did you ever figure out how to clear all these fields at the same time as setting the identifier to no?
