My account was suspended right after adding Google shopping, i reread all the policies made all the changes, removed all of my products from Google to ensure it wasn’t an issue with a product and then got this!! I’ve been working my SEO so hard and finally got to the second page of Google and now I’m GONE! HELP!
Thank you for contacting Google Shopping Ads. Hope you are doing great!

Solved! Go to the solution
Checking a site for compliance is a big task. To get you started I recommend having a look at the following policies:
The most common issues are:
Not having a valid checkout: https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/9158778?hl=en
Selling products that are not stocked: https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/6150127#:~:text=Unavailable%20promotions
Having multiple websites in the same niche
Not being honest with what you sell or how you portray the business
Having a low trust factor or no track record of order fullfilment
You can ask Google for specific examples of policy violation. To do so ask here and check the box, I need more info : https://support.google.com/merchants/contact/suspended
Hope this helps.
As far as I understand I’m compliant to all of those, the only thing I can think of is when Shopify synced with google it synced all of my products and published them before I could edit them all correctly. Would that be it? That and my new awful speed insight scores is the only thing I can think of! It’s so frustrating
Submitting inaccurate data, may cause a suspension, however 95% of all suspensions are related to the website / business model.
Not really, suspensions due to poor performance can only happen if your website loads a +10 seconds. Suspensions based on this are pretty much non existant for Shopify websites.
Your issues are most likely website related, ie your info, and or your business model.
Emmanuel, would you be willing to connect via WhatsApp or a platform where we can talk directly? I'm at a total loss here. yesterday got my score to a steady 60+ , this morning I run PageSpeed Insights and get a whopping 21. No one seems to notice issues with performance or the such and you are mentioning it most likely has nothing to do with performance. What Could it be? My product descriptions? Our website states that the CEO is 4 years old? ( everything is under my name though )
This is an accepted solution.
Again, pagespeed is not a reason for suspension, unless it loads longer than 10 seconds. I doubt that is even the case. You are looking in the wrong area to fix policy violations.
No, I do not use WhatsApp or any other chat channels.
