I am trying to set up a google shopping campaign and I am having a lot of issues with the google merchant centre.
I installed the feed for google shopping app and have installed the products but a lot of them were declined because of missing MPN which I do not have, google advised me to add in 'false' into the column of shopify.
Now I am getting that I have missing shipping value, which again I have not added into my shopify store as I do not charge for shipping. I also have a message of incorrect product identifiers, which again, I do not have a column on shopify for that.
I just dont understand why it is so complicated to connect a shopify store to the merchant centre and run a campaign.
Could anyone give me some advise on how to resolve this and get ahead with the merchant centre?
Hi @DesignKNB ( Sarah )
For shipping ad value as USD 0:00
If free shipping
USD is if you are selling products on ur store in USA currency.
If MPN is not available and GTIN is not available
Add product as
True or Yes
False or No
Hope this helps

To add more info to @vinods great reply.
Make sure to disable automatic shipping by following the guide here: https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/promoting-marketing/create-marketing/google/requirements#shipping...
Then manually setup your shipping: https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/6069284
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.
Google shopping is complicated due to its many policies and requirements, everybody has to go through what you have to do.
In case you do not charge for shipping for your products, you still have to define a shipping rate in the Merchant Center. You can add shipping charges as 0, which implies free shipping.
Hope this helps.
