This usually means some info on your website is missing or incomplete.

And if your trust factors are low, Google would need more signals from  your website.


For example missing or incomplete business address.

Using an address where you are not locatd.

No reviews

Not having products stocked.

Hi @Strmln 


If your products have been rejected due to Google Merchant Center's Misrepresentation policy, it means that Google has found something inaccurate that violates its policy.


Here are some common reasons why products are rejected:

  1. Inaccurate product information: Ensure that the information you provide about your products is accurate, complete, and up-to-date. This includes product titles, descriptions, images, and prices. Double-check that the product information on your website matches the information you provide to Google Merchant Center.

  2. Misleading promotions: Avoid using misleading promotions or discounts to attract customers. Ensure that the price you advertise is the actual price customers will pay.

  3. Unsupported claims: Don't make unsupported claims about your products, such as claiming they have health benefits or can cure diseases.

  4. Unacceptable business practices: Google Merchant Center has strict policies against fraudulent or deceptive business practices. Make sure that your business practices are transparent and ethical.

To resolve the issue, you should review the product information you submitted to Google Merchant Center and correct any inaccuracies or misleading information. You may also need to update the product information on your website to ensure that it matches the information you provide to Google Merchant Center.

Once you have made the necessary changes, you can resubmit your products for review. If you're unsure why your products were rejected or how to fix the issue, contact Google Merchant Center support for assistance or contact us.
