Cannot add item_group_id with Google Channel for Google Shopping ads + Descriptions not from me

I am not saying people search for sizes. I am saying people will not click a size 43 sock if they have size 36. But that might be a size that is available but just not showing up in the add... If there is no size shown or are dropdown people can see what sizes I have.

But I guess you only pay for clicks so it doesn't matter that much

Hello,

I am having the same problem, the size variant is showing on my Google shopping ads but I don't want that to happen. I just want the Product/colour variant to show. Did you ever get any solution?

Then you need to use an application for example mine, which allows you to exclude variant products and only submit the main product.

I was really inclined to look into your offering but really put off by your repeated attempts to get someone to use your product instead of answering questions. Is there or isn't there a way to add the item_group_ID?

Your saying you have the same problem as the original poster. IE sizes show for different products?

This is caused by either you not adding accurate product identifiers, which are gtin, mpn, brand values.

Or the manufacturer has not submitted a manufacturer feed.

This issue should only happen if you are in a grouped listing. By sharing a screenshot, I can check if this is the case or not.

As in a lot of cases what one experiences is different from another, it is best to provide details of your issues, such as screenshots and your own explanation. This to avoid pointing you in the wrong direction.

Google Shopping seems to be doing what they want sometimes even if you do all the settings right. It is kinda annoying

I am also having major issues with the Google fields, as I’ve always had help with this. 
Since Covid has happened, my store has taken a huge hit, so I’ve had to pull back on ALL of my budgets. Now I am having to learn how to do all of this myself, and it is overwhelming to say the least. 
I could’ve sworn these fields used to be automatically entered in shopify whenever I added my products. I own a custom printed leggings store, so all products are different, with 3 sizes. My sizing is not named the typical “small, medium, large, etc” sizing, but custom named sizes, such as “Plush” and “Pluxe” for the plus sizes. Will Google recognize these sizes? 

I have no clue what to enter, if anything into these fields in my screenshots. I’m wondering if these being blank is what’s also causing major issues with my Facebook catalog too? That’s a whole separate beast I’m trying to get under control… omg. Huge mess. 
If someone could let me know what I need to do, if anything? I’d really REALLY appreciate it! I am doing all I can to salvage my once thriving store, before I have no choice but to permanently close after 6 years. Thank you so much in advance!

No you should use standard sizes.

The accepted sizes are listed here: https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/6324492?hl=en&ref_topic=6324338#zippy=%2Cstandard-sizes-...

Best to use, small, medium, large

Or for leggings:

32 Regular
00 Short
32 x 34
32W 34L
00 Waist / 29 Inseam

 

Or:  x-short, short, regular, long, x-long

 

For your PDF, add all the information you can, this helps improve your ranking. Except custom labels, this is not needed, unless you want to do something special with campaign strategies.
