Hi Folks, I believe there are 3 ways to resolve this issue.

1) You can use product groups and exclude certain variants from being advertised (exclude by item ID).

https://support.google.com/google-ads/answer/6275317?hl=en

2) You could delete the unwanted product variants within your Google Merchant Center account (Products > All Products)

3) You can remove the products from publishing to Google within the per-product Shopify channel settings, then use the Google Sheets method to create your own feed for that product and it's variants.

Hope that helps,

Thanks for this, Andrew! BlossomLab's option 3 worked well for our circumstances. Having control over which variants are published is worth the maintenance of a separate sheet for the feed.

Has there been any updates since this solution? I am looking to do the same thing, remove my variants with options from my Google Shopping ads

I have the same problem with Facebook and google shopify feeds. I think I will just export my data into access and strip it like that . I am working with my own custom products but also another supplier feed. 

It seems the best option for both Facebook and google is to work with you own csv product feeds . Shopify fields don't map properly to Facebook fields and it just makes everything way to messy.

The hardest part of ecommerce I have found is getting everything right for Google and Facebook. I had a Canvas wrap flagged by Facebook for a policy violation "selling animals" It was a picture of a bird and had the bird name in the title. I also had another item flagged as "Alcohol" violation . It was a Canvas Wrap of a concrete horse and cart in a driveway .. GO FIGURE! 

All I can suggest to make you shop easier  to work with start with a very small dataset and get them through the system and then build slowly on that. I find I spend hrs in optimising my Catalog and product feed.
