Are you targeting Germany by any chance? Most likely your Google Product Category is wrong and its confusing Google. Or if you did not submit a category, the automation did not add the correct one.

 

Go to Google Merchant Center > Products > All Products > click on a products that has the issue > at the top you should see the category, check what it is.

 

If it's wrong make sure that you have added the value : Apparel & Accessories > Clothing > Shirts & Tops

Hi, I have updated the categories as you mentioned.
I have just checked my Google merchant center to see I have some products active and some that are not.
some sizes of each t shirt are now Active, the ones that aren't active when i click into the product it says 'Suspended account for policy violation'

If you have a suspended account, then non of your products will be approved. I recommend you read: https://community.shopify.com/c/Ecommerce-Marketing/Checklist-Suspended-Google-Merchant-Center-Accou...

 

Also, you must comply with Google policies, setup and not knowing the policy is a recipe for disaster.

 

For example you are not allowed to use full cap words, as per: https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/6324415
