We are a small bookshop that sells rare academic theological books. Google is not approving many of my books because I don't have a GTIN or even an ISBN number. Many of our books are antiques and pre-date the use of such. Is there a workaround for this? Thanks.

Hi @TheologicalBook,

 

Try setting the following attributes in the product feed:

[identifier_exists] = no

[condition] = used

If Google disapproves the product again and states that it has a GTIN / ISBN, you'll have to find the number because someone linked the GTIN / ISBN to the product.

So in the field for ISBN, GTIN, I am writing "no". In the product category I am using "print books" and I have a custom category that I created that says Antique book, no ISBN or GTIN.

 

Where is "used"?

 

Some of the books we're selling are so rare or unique that I doubt anyone has assigned a GTIN to them.

 

Thanks.
