How long does it take for a feed to be accepted? giftgalleryyork 5/12/12 4:06 AM

Hi,

I have created and uploaded a feed using my Google merchant centre but it is still showing as "awaiting approval"

I first uploaded this feed on the 7th of May and have subsequently re-uploaded it on the 8th and 9th

Kind regards

It's supposed to only take 2 business days, but there are several of us right now who have been waiting for over a week. It looks like Google is backed up for some reason. Your best bet is to just sit tight and wait it out.

There are a few other threads, one of them in this particular forum, about this issue. Google says in multiple places that it should take up to 2 business days from the time you submit the feed for it to be reviewed and accepted/rejected (see below for links/quotes on this). At times in the past, this has not been true, and it's actually taken much longer (on the order of weeks) for a review to happen. Things have been steady for the past couple of months with 2 day review times, though, so this is most likely a temporary delay, brought on by who knows what.
