Hey @MiniGemsCraft,

 

If a product has an MPN or GTIN, it's best practice to enter their value as the relevancy will help campaign performance. However, if a product doesn't have either of these codes, then you can set the identifier_exists field to false, which will allow those fields to not exist, letting the products get approved.

 

Hope this helps!

Unique product identifiers are assigned to each product by the manufacturer, so if you sell the same product as another retailer, the UPIs will be identical. Common unique product identifiers include Global Trade Item Numbers (GTINs), Manufacturer Part Numbers (MPNs), and brand names.


Google Merchant Center product feed expects for each product the appropriate unique product identifier values like GTIN, MPN, Brand. If you don't have the values, then you have to use the identifier exists [identifier_exists] attribute to indicate that the unique product identifiers (UPIs) are not available for your product.


identifier_exists is an attribute that tells Google that this product is missing identifiers, and this will prevent these products from being disapproved.


If these identifiers are not available, you have to set identifier_exists=No, otherwise set to Yes.


If you found the answer helpful consider supporting the Shopify Community by giving it a Like + Accept the solution.

Hi @MiniGemsCraft 

 

If the GTIN or MPN is unavailable, you can mark your products as custom products so that Google cannot throw any error message. You can also use any app so that we can automatically set the identifier to 'no' if you cannot provide the MPN and the GTIN.

 

Hope this helps.
