Hi Deanna, I just came from the Google "upi" and "attribute requirements" pages, among others.  It occurred to me that G "feed requirements" could be a course one would take in college.

On the "product feed spec" page it talks about the attribute "brand" which is only associated with mpn's.  I've been using this attribute whenever I know the maker of an item.  I've also been using color, and apparently, this one is for apparel & accessories only.  OMG, have I been excluded from G search all this time?

Just recently the following attributes have been retired: quantity, feature, manufacturer, genre, featured product, year, author, edition, and adwords_publish.  I've been using genre, year, feature, and author.  It seems all my listings will have to be edited!

The attribute "google product category" is REQUIRED for custom (vintage) goods, but only "if (in an) applicable category".  What the heck does that mean?

If I sound agitated, it's because I am.  No wonder my sales are almost non-existent.

Thanks for your post!

The following is information that Meryl posted in our Yahoo group concerning the changes we can expect with Google.  I'm sorry I don't have more information than what is being posted but thought you would like a 'heads up'  

This is information "demanded"; by Google. Some new requirements you may be complying with, some may mean you will need to tweak your listing habits a bit:

Enforcement of the latest requirements began last week. Google requires all products to have a unique product identifier (condition of the item is irrelevant), and sellers of unique items previously had to get special exemptions from Google. But Google added an "identifier_exists" attribute that sellers of custom and unique products can set to "false." That means previously exempt accounts are no longer exempt as of July 15th.

Requirements for unique product identifiers differ by product category. Google explained that custom goods and merchant-defined product bundles should set the "identifier_exists attribute to "false". That includes books published before 1970 and custom apparel.

Changes to the Google Shopping Feed Specification include the following:

We are improving our support for merchant-defined multipacks. For example, many consumer products like toothpaste are sold in custom multipacks. The feed specification now clarifies how such products should be submitted. 

We are moving towards a world with high-resolution displays. Therefore, we are also starting to recommend higher-quality images with at least 800 pixels in height and width to give users a better visual representation of advertised products. 

Some products like custom goods, vintage items, or collectibles don't have unique product identifiers. For such products we are now introducing the identifier exists attribute. Additionally, we have updated our requirements on unique product identifiers. 

We have updated our guidance for the description and color attributes to make them more precise and actionable. 

We now provide dedicated support for energy efficiency labels and unit pricing for merchants targeting countries in the European Union and Switzerland. 

Merchants promoting non-family safe items on family-safe websites can now tag individual items as non-family safe.
Enforcement of the new specifications began for U.S. accounts on July 15th and will continue to ramp up over the coming weeks. By September, all violating offers will be rejected and will not be served through Product Listing Ads, according to the announcement.

And you get free delivery confirmation now with priority mail .... I don't know how long that's been in effect. Automatic insurance IS great news. It's good that they're giving something back after the last rate hike.

Comment by Vintage Touch/Deanna Moyers on July 5, 2013 at 6:54am
I just read that beginning July 28th that domestic priority mail will have automatic insurance for damaged, lost etc mail up to $100. Packages will need to be taken to the post office I believe to receive the insurance. Express mail will get a name change to Priority Express. Also with domestic priority you will get an estimated delivery of 1, 2 or 3 days depending on destination. So it sounds like a bit of good news for a change from USPS.

For Clayton - if you list an item and put 1 for the quantity and engage inventory control, only one item can be purchased.  You might want to check what your quantity is for this item on your administration page.  Every item is allowed 10  photos.  The quantity that you put into the listing from your administration page is the quantity that can be purchased.

Thank you for your comment and welcome to eCrater - it's nice to hear about a new seller.  I have been with eCrater now since the spring of 2010 and I've been very pleased.  eCrater marketplace promotes the site through Google and this is a big plus, but self promoting will really help your store.  Give us a link to your new store so we can visit!  eCrater now tells you on your individual order page, where a sale originates and I love knowing this - it helps to know where my efforts are working.  I've been well pleased with eCrater - no complaints.  You are invited to visit my Vintage Touch store on eCrater at: Vintage Touch  Feel free to ask any questions or give any comments....always welcome.  Best of Luck on your new store.

Your invoice will show the number of sales being charged a fee. You can go into your orders page and put in a search for the month of May with marketplace fees and this should match the number of sales on your invoice.
Comment by Vintage Touch/Deanna Moyers on June 17, 2013 at 3:12pm
Well that is strange OutOfTbeAttic - I thought the fees were only charged to marketplace sales - my charges all came from marketplace sales.
Comment by OutOfTheAttic2u on June 17, 2013 at 3:01pm

I had 3 from the market place and 1 from other option!
