Open up the multifeed app, and ensure the correct URL's are set in the product URL (i think the first or second step)

Then choose the appropriate language from the selection.

The problem is my top level  domain is not registered in google merchant center, since i was just focusing on my main market which is in Italy and using my subdomain when i setup google merchant center the account that is linked is my subdomain (it.www.xxxx.com).

I wanted my top level domain www.xxxx.com to be the domain serving the rest of eu and assigned the diffrent feeds for the countries that i wanted to target.I have assigned the translated languages to my eu market which would be my top level domain.But when i Tried to  switch the  domain  for the products link in the multifeed app i got this message

The domain of selected account,

Google Merchant -000000

, does NOT match the product URL (

it.xxxx.com

vs

www.xxxxx.com

)

You need to have the account properly connected and claim the domain of the product URL or the feed will be disapproved.

I did switch my google account to advanced settings and added the  top level domain but i added www infront,which i later saw in a post that you had advised just to the domain without the  www I later deleted this account because i got a bit confused  ....

Simply change the URL in GMC to be the top level domain only without www or subdomain.

 

You can then have both top level domain, www, and subdomains all in 1 account.
