Hi Shopify Community! 🙂

 

We're having trouble with our Google Ads due to "Misrepresentation".

 

Are there any Shopify Partners who are Google Ad and Shopping Specialists who can assist with this and help us get our Google Ads up and running asap? 

 

We sell products for women (no adult or sexual types of products that Google is claiming we're advertising; more like hair removal devices, hair tools, fitness clothes, fitness tools, etc. lol) 

 

Looking to outsource someone please. These issues are a bit advanced for us to solve.

 

Thank you!

@Femmetouch 

Can you please send the exact reason (from Google email) and the ads that you are trying to run?

It helps to diagnose the issue.

Generally, when it comes to adult products, the ads are rejected due to images.

 

Thanks,

Sajat
