Managing Rejected Products on Google Shopping

Welcome to the Feedcast Help Center! If you're experiencing difficulties with products being refused on Google Shopping, this article is here to guide you through the possible reasons for these refusals and the concrete steps to resolve these issues.

Understanding refusals on Google Shopping

Google Shopping is a powerful platform for increasing the visibility of your products, but it comes with its own set of strict rules.

Here's a list of common errors encountered on Google Shopping and suggestions on how to correct them:

Incomplete or incorrect product data: Make sure that all the information required by Google is provided and correct. This includes title, description, product ID (GTIN, MPN), availability, price, product image, and more. Correct any missing or inaccurate data in your product feed.

Violation of Google policies : Google has strict rules regarding certain types of products and content. If your products are rejected for policy violations, review Google's policies and modify your products or website to comply.

Image problems: Images of poor quality, with logos or text superimposed on them, or which do not correctly represent the product, may be rejected. Use clear, professional images that comply with Google guidelines.

Pricing issues: Price inconsistencies between the product feed and the landing page can lead to rejections. Make sure the price in the feed corresponds exactly to the price on your website.

Incorrect availability: Listing products as being in stock when they are not on your website can cause rejections. Keep your feed up to date with the correct availability information.

Incorrect landing page links: Broken links or links to incorrect pages can lead to product rejections. Check and correct your landing page URLs in the feed.

Website performance issues: A slow or poorly optimized website can affect the user experience and lead to rejections. Optimize your site's performance to make it fast and responsive.

Website performance issues: A slow or poorly optimized website can affect the user experience and lead to refusals. Optimize your site's performance to make it fast and responsive.

Missing or unclear payment, delivery and return information: Google requires that this information be easily accessible and clear to users. Make sure they are visible and understandable on your website.
