Google Feed Layout XML File Product Warning

The feed is now generated in XML format and uploaded automatically to the site.
Just tried uploading generated Google Product Feed XML data file from my PC ProgramData/SellerDeck/SellerDeck 2016//Sites/Site1 folder - result Warnings / Disapprovals for 100s of Products.

Reason is <g:identifier_exists> variable is shown 'FALSE' which is not acceptable to GOOGLE code line below:
Code:
<actinic:block if="%3cactinic%3avariable%20name%3d%22isbn%22%20%2f%3e%20%3d%3d%20%22%22%20AND%20%3cactinic%3avariable%20name%3d%22ean%22%20%2f%3e%20%3d%3d%20%22%22%20AND%20%3cactinic%3avariable%20name%3d%22upc%22%20%2f%3e%20%3d%3d%20%22%22" ><g:identifier_exists>FALSE</g:identifier_exists></actinic:block>
I tried removing this code line - result no products uploaded to Google.

My V14 Google Data Feed includes the 'identifier_exists' variable but this field has no data (blank) for all products.

I have re-instated the V14 Google Data Feed upload pending your response and advice to resolve the Product Warning issue encountered on uploading the V16 Google Product Feed XML data file.

For this tag, it looks like Google have changed both the accepted values, and the circumstances when it may be used (https://support.google.com/merchants...24478?hl=en-GB) :-(

Try changing the original code
Code:
			<actinic:block if="%3cactinic%3avariable%20name%3d%22isbn%22%20%2f%3e%20%3d%3d%20%22%22%20AND%20%3cactinic%3avariable%20name%3d%22ean%22%20%2f%3e%20%3d%3d%20%22%22%20AND%20%3cactinic%3avariable%20name%3d%22upc%22%20%2f%3e%20%3d%3d%20%22%22" ><g:identifier_exists>FALSE</g:identifier_exists></actinic:block>
To
Code:
			<actinic:block if="%3cactinic%3avariable%20name%3d%22brand%22%20%2f%3e%20%20%3d%3d%20%22%22%20OR%20%28%3cactinic%3avariable%20name%3d%22isbn%22%20%2f%3e%20%3d%3d%20%22%22%20AND%20%3cactinic%3avariable%20name%3d%22ean%22%20%2f%3e%20%3d%3d%20%22%22%20AND%20%3cactinic%3avariable%20name%3d%22upc%22%20%2f%3e%20%3d%3d%20%22%22%20AND%20%3cactinic%3avariable%20name%3d%22mpn%22%20%2f%3e%20%3d%3d%20%22%22%20%29" ><g:identifier_exists>no</g:identifier_exists></actinic:block>

My feed works normally including the original code with all products accepted. Why is that?

It depends whether or not you use a combination of the brand / MPN / ISBN / EAN / UPC variables

Hi Jules.

The first item applies to sites that only accept orders over a certain value. The minimum order value should be specified in the Google shipping settings, in addition to the Sellerdeck Business Settings. The linked article explains how it works. As far as I can see, the content of the feed isn't affected.

The second item seems designed to trap input errors that result in excessive shipping cost or weight. As long as your shipping and weights are defined correctly in Sellerdeck Desktop, and you don't edit the feed manually post-generation, there shouldn't be any errors of that kind.

The third is an optional feature. The default feed only supports a few of those. Handling estimated delivery dates could be quite tricky, I think. It's only applicable to sites specifically targeting the USA.

I hope this helps.
