How to resolve Google merchant setup errors on my new website?

1 0 1

HI! I have just launched my Shopify website, but my Google channel has not been set up. It says there are errors that need to be resolved before set up can be completed. It says there was a problem verifying and claiming my domain. I am not sure what I need to do.

Please advise. Thank you!

You can instead manually verify and claim in Google Merchant Center > gear icon > business information > website.


And add the HTML tag in theme.liquid head section.
