Google Base Feeds Gocerman 4/5/12 7:42 AM
We have an issue with submitting items to Google Base on items that have a"Select a Size" or "Select a Weight" in the pack size options. For clarfication this item is one of the items in question: http://www.weaverscountrymarket.com/m5/270--soft-sweep-magnetic-brooms.html  ,this happens whenever a customer must select a weight or size from a drop down menu to add it to the cart. All items that are set up this way are disallowed. That represent 50% of the items that we are trying to import. What can we do to change this? Thank-you.

google considers a group of identical products
that only differ by color, material, pattern, or
size to be variants.

color, material, pattern, and size are generic variant attributes.

without proper variant attributes and a proper item_group_id
in the feed, submitting more than one variant is considered
a policy violation and grounds for disapproval.

for non-apparel variant items --
either (1) submit only one of the variant items only once in the feed;
or (2) use proper variant attributes with a proper item_group_id
if you wish to submit two are more variant items from the group.

also, more generally, if google considers a specific item purchase
to be too confusing for users, google may disapprove specific items.

but forum members can mainly offer suggestions and possibilities;
only someone from google can clarify a specific disapproval --
