Hi there, my names Alicia and I have just launched a online confectionery store. I must admit I underestimated how hard it would be to set up everything on my own. Before I consider hiring someone to help. Would anyone have any advice on how to fix a policy violation in merchant centre please? It’s coming up with missing product data, product data disapproved. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Alicia

Yes, Google Merchant Center has a steep learning curve and one that is unforgiving. Making a mistake can mean getting suspended or not. So with such a high risk you should definitely study up first or hire someone who specializes in the field.


What you describe can mean a lot of things.


For example, it can mean missing product identifiers, brand, gtin, mpn.

Make sure if you have a barcode on the products, that you submit brand and gtin. If not you must set the products as custom and remove brand and gtin.
