I’m on my 1,000 hour of trying to get a pocket of products (Judy Blue Jeans) through to the merchant center, they suspended account.  I have tried to get a call back and submitted help 10 times, no reply or generic reply.I have hired expert who is not doing job.I have rewritten and fixed every one in that set of products trying to see which field is triggering error.  My info is not copied, I have no idea what is causing error.I am a new boutique struggling without products coming up on Google losing a ton of money and really need help.  Fellow retailers refuse to help me.I have tried another set of shoes I have on my website, again no dice.Yesterday error was poor landing page so I rewrote every product description and put just three products through and they did not clear again.  Now saying missing product data.In google fields I have filled out everything but sizing.  I have filled out gender, new, age group.  It isn’t a custom product but has style number and no barcode visible so I have been using that.  I appreciate anyones advice.my website is check6boutique.com my products im trying to get on first are Judy blue jeans.Thank you so much in advance I am totally new at this.

Details

Google Merchant Center is extremely complex due to a massive amount of policies. Even when you follow all policies, Google may still continue to suspend you.
 
For example for your specific business:
 
You have no payment policy
The return policy should be separated from the refund policy
Your shipping page does not explain any shipping pricing
You have no availability status on your product landing page
etc. etc.
 
Below is a generalized list I compiled from years of data sourced from Google Ads policies, community posts and my own experience. This should help you better understand the requirements.
 
Business Details VS Payment Details
Ensure your business details match the payment details on all platforms. Especially all Google platforms and PayPal.
 
One Account
Only have one Google Ads and One Google Merchant Center account. Creating multiple accounts when suspended is considered circumventing policy violations. Exceptions to business entities and businesses with multiple brands. (Here you need an MCA)
 
One Website
Only have one website linked to your business. Only in certain situations can you have multiple websites, in general, merchants that are suspended have multiple websites for no valid reason other than to gain an unfair advantage.
 
Existing Suspensions
If you already have existing suspensions on other accounts, you must first resolve these issues before resolving your additional accounts’ problems.
 
Track Record of Order Fulfillment
Make sure you generate reviews from orders placed on your website. Ensure all reviews are real, and you have a mix of positive and negative reviews.
 
Reviews
If you get reviews that are not verified from a purchase, remove the review.
 
Phone Number
Make sure your phone number is answered during business hours listed on the website and Google My Business.
 
Google Maps
Your business address must easily be found on Google Maps. And connected to Google My Business, BBB, Facebook if eligible.
 
Accessibility
Your business premise must have the ability to accept packages and legal documents. And have someone at the premises during business hours listed on the website and Google My Business.
 
Verify
Track all availability, pricing, applicable taxes and shipping policies are accurate and listed on the website.
 
Selling Products
Validate and or confirm you have the appropriate reseller license and certificates from your distributor.
 
Availability
Verify your product status, is in stock or out of stock, and that this is verified with actual stocked goods—both on your website and in your data feed. Also, avoid frequent availability changes during one day. Google requires stable availability information.
When ordering products, make sure no-one can purchase more than stocked. For example, do not allow customers to order 1000 products when you only have 20 in stock.
 
Payment Logos
Add the payment methods used in plain text on your product landing page just above or below the add-to-cart button. Or with logos, have the plain text under the logos.
 
 
Pricing
As with the availability status, make sure you have accurate product pricing and are up to date in the data feed, and that Google has collected this info.
Only list 1 product price, if you have multiple products, consider submitting different landing pages for each product.
 
Don’t Sell Products You Can’t Deliver
Don’t sell products you can not deliver to the customer. And don’t sell products you can not deliver within 1.5 weeks.
 
Content
Make sure to not copy-paste the same images and text from the manufacturer and or other resellers. You will increase the quality of your ranking by taking your own images and writing quality content.
Copying content from others will also lower your trust score.Google may see you as low quality due to not adding additional or different content. The reason behind this is that Google wants to provide users with good listings and user experience, if you are not different from any other merchant, there is no benefit.BTW: just as a side note, this is also for organic listings. You can rank better by having your own content.
 
PopUps
Generally, PopUps are not allowed. When for example, a pop-up or banner blocks or covers important content and or information for your customers. Instead have a small icon in the bottom corners that show / hide the newsletter subscription.Reference: https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/4752265?hl=en
 
Discounts
Don’t have side wide discounts when you have never sold the item at its original price. Listing discounts when they are not real is considered misleading.
 
Misleading Content
Do not mislead, make false claims or statements. Such as:
If you are selling products related to healthcare, medicine or supplements, remove any claims or statements not approved by the target country government body.If you a reseller and not an official partner, do not show images, or quotes that you are.Don’t suggest you have certificates when you don’t
Contact Page
Make sure to have a contact page with the below listed items and linked in the footer of all pages.
Physical business address (Virtual Offices or PO Boxes or Distribution centers are generally not allowed)Telephone numberEmail address (same domain as website)Contact formContact Hours (even for online businesses)
Also add the physical business address, telephone number and email address in the footer of all pages. And if possible also your business registration number.
 
Make sure to also add your exact same business address in Google Merchant Center > Wrench > Business Information > About Your Business
Do not add FAQ’s to the contact page, separate this on a FAQ dedicated page.
 
Footer Links
Make sure the below links are visible and accessible to anyone on a desktop, tablet or smartphone.
refund pagereturns pagedelivery / shipping pagepayment policyprivacy policyterms and conditionsdisclaimer
Payment Methods
Clearly show with image icons in the footer of the page which payment methods you accept on all pages. Also, add the same info written in the terms and conditions page.
 
Delivery / Shipping Page
Add a delivery page with your handling time, estimated delivery time, pricing and warehouse location. Make sure to write the information clearly, and can be easily read.
Link this page in the footer of all pages.
 
Terms and Conditions Page
This is a rather technical page and should be written by professionals / lawyer. Some eCommerce platforms such as Shopify have a template available for you to use.
Link this page in the footer of all pages.
 
Privacy Policy Page
This as with the terms and conditions page is a technical page and should be written by professionals / lawyer.
Link this page in the footer of all pages.
 
Disclaimer
A disclaimer is used primarily to notify or warn users of the limit or the extent to a website’s liability to a user if there is a legal action.
For example, if you have a disclaimer that states you are not liable for any issues a user may have when they click on a third-party link on your site and a user does end up having an issue, that disclaimer can protect you.
Disclaimers are a key way a website can prevent potential future liability from the use of their site or errors and omissions on the site. Any website or app should have disclaimers for protection, but they are highly recommended for ecommerce sites.
Including these statements can protect an ecommerce store from any issues in shipping, returns, refunds, third party partners, or affiliates. Ecommerce stores are unique because people often rely on these websites to not have issues. However, sometimes things do happen and disclaimers act as safeguards against this.
People sometimes confuse disclaimers with other agreements on a website, such as a Terms of Use or a Privacy Policy. While including all of these is essential to protect your site, disclaimers do offer something different.
 
Returns Page
Do not merge the return info into the refund policy page. I recommend creating a separate page just for the return policy. I received an email from Google suggesting this to be best practice.
The return policy should be based on the delivery day. Not purchase day. The reason is that an item could theoretically be in transit beyond the refund policy days, meaning a consumer can never return the goods. In this case, it is considered dishonest. So make sure it is based on the delivery date.
Under what circumstances you offer a return. For each of the listed items below, you need to explain what happens for each scenario.
To cancel an orderDamaged on arrivalFaulty manufacturing or broken after use (What is your warranty)They changed their mindFor an exchangeOr its a wrong product
Explain the initial steps a user must take to initiate a return, such as do they need to call you, do they email you or do they need to submit a contact form?
Also explain what documents they need to show and if they need to take a picture of the product.
Also explain the complete steps to initiate a return, such as an address, email process, what info they need to give you, etc.
Do not mention things you don’t sell. For example you mention VHS or flowrs, you don’t sell this? This policy page seems to be a copy paste from somewhere else. You need to write a professional policy page. To do this, contact a lawyer or policy professional.
In short, provide as much information a client needs to understand the full process of a return.
 
Refund Page
Separate the return policy info from the refund policy. And have this linked in the footer of all pages.
Under what circumstances you offer a return. For each of the listed items below, you need to explain what happens for each scenario.
If the products never arrivedDamaged on arrivalFaulty manufacturing or broken after use (What is your warranty)They changed their mindOr its a wrong product
Explain when your user can expect a refund.
The refund policy should be based on the delivery day. Not purchase day. The reason is that an item could theoretically be in transit beyond the refund policy days, meaning a consumer can never return the goods. In this case, it is considered dishonest. So make sure it is based on the delivery date.

Also explain what documents they need to show and if they need to take a picture of the product.
Explain the complete steps to initiate a refund, such as an address, email process, what info they need to give you, etc. It only explains this for exchange, not for refunds.
In short, provide as much information a client needs to understand the full process of a refund.
 
Remove User Based Modifications
Remove all IP, browser, user modifications. Such as automated currency conversions or changing the website content or design. All users must see the same exact info, regardless of where they are located.
 
Checkout
Allow for guest checkout and do not force customers to accept terms and conditions.
The checkout requires the following policies linked from the footer of the page.

Ensure all products don’t have any errors or warnings. To check go to Google Merchant Center > Products > Diagnostics
 
Remove Disapproved Products
If you had disapproved products before receiving the suspension and you are not able to resolve the individual product disapproval, then remove the products from the feed.
 
Accurate Shipping & Tax Settings
Ensure in Google Merchant Center you have accurate shipping and tax settings. You can test the shipping and tax prices on individual products by going to Products > All Products > click on your product > scroll to the center of the page.
This needs to be accurate so double check in your product information page.
 
Structured Data
Ensure that the SKU in the structured data matches the product id in the data feed submitted to Google Merchant Center.
To check the id in feed, go to Google Merchant Center > Products > All Products > and view the Item ID column. These values need to match with the SKU in the structured data. 
Double check you have no errors here: https://search.google.com/test/rich-results
 
Promotions
Offering a promotion or discount that does not exist.
 
Not Adding Accurate Product Information
Make sure you add accurate product information and that you follow Google’s editorial guidelines.
