Google Merchant Center product data specification update Jan 2022
Posted on January 25, 2022 (Last Updated: July 13, 2023)
Provide 'shipping country' sub-attribute
From Feb 2022 all shopping feeds using the 'shipping' attribute must also include the 'shipping country' sub-attribute. If you use 'shipping' in your product feed now is the time to add the 'shipping country', if you don't your ads will be disapproved.
For troubleshooting affected ads you can search the Diagnostics tab in your Merchants Center for Missing sub-attribute [country (sub-attribute of [shipping])]
If you are a WakeupData Connect user, to ensure that your Google Shopping feed contains accurate and up-to-date information and correct google shopping feed specifications, it is a straightforward process of implementing a few essential rules and field conversions. By following these steps, you can guarantee that the data you provide for your products (google shopping feed spec) is correct and aligned with the new requirements.
Firstly, it is crucial to review your current shipping attribute and identify any missing sub-attributes, particularly the 'shipping country.'

By adding this information, you ensure that your ads comply with the latest guidelines set by Google.

Now easier to switch CSS account to new provider
In other CSS related news, WakeupData is excited to announce that with the recent digital advancements made by Google, it has become even quicker and more convenient for businesses to become WakeupData CSS users. Google has streamlined the process, making it easier for old CSS providers to seamlessly transfer their clients to a new CSS provider like WakeupData.
The process begins when a new CSS provider sends a request to switch the client's account to their service. An administrator then reviews the request in the Merchant Center (google merchant data feed specifications) and can either approve or decline the change. Once approved, the account switch will occur after a default grace period of 14 days. However, if the old CSS provider modifies the grace period in the CSS Center, the account switch can happen even quicker.
