Discussion in 'Google API' started by Mxl, Jan 7, 2014. Just launched our site today, and going to sync the Product feed with Google shopping and getting this error: Barcode isn't the correct length (needs to be 8, 12, 13, or 14 digits in length). Hello everybody, I'm working with Google shopping at the moment to get some critical errors out of the way. it doesn’t have an identifier. In google merchant under feeds I added a supplemental feed.

If the product is unique, vintage, handcrafted, antique, second hand, etc. On the next column I used "identifier exists" as the heading and put false for each ID i used. H,i it seems Google are bringing in a new 'identifier_exists' attribute for use if your products do not have Unique Product Identifiers (EAN, etc).

What is [identifier_exists]? It can be set to either ‘yes’ (meaning there are identifiers) or ‘no’ (meaning there are no identifiers). Messages: 35 Likes Received: 0 Best Answers: 0 Trophy Points: 16 #1. 0.

Identifier Exists - This attribute gives information about the existence of the product’s identifier. The errors have to do with the GTIN, MPN and Brand atributes. What needs to be done in this situation is to submit an [Identifier_Exists] attribute with “FALSE” as a value for all such items. I used the google sheet option and on the first column heading on my sheet I had "id" and i pasted the shopify ID for each product underneath. The attribute ‘identifier exists’ and value ‘FALSE’ should be used for .
