1. Add ‘unit pricing measure’ to your feed
If you already have this attribute in your source feed, mapping it to Google's requirements will be easy.
First identify which field in your data feed that contains this information and map it to Google's ‘unit pricing measure’ field:
2. A single ID for all unit sizes
Sometimes merchants will have one ID for a given product, regardless of the size/content. In our tuna-example: a merchant could have one ID for 100 gr, 250gr and 1 kilo of tuna.
The thing is that they are three different products and Google should be able to differentiate them.
A quick fix is to create new IDs by combining the original ID with the weight of the product and separate them everything by a dash.
3. Different spellings for the same measure
As seen above the unit measurement has to be expressed in one of the accepted units, e.g. mg, g, kg etc,
The devil is in the detail: you cannot enter g. or gr. or gram. The only value accepted will be g.
The solution to this is to quickly re-map your measures to make sure Google supports your unit pricing measures.
The success of your Google Shopping Campaigns depends largely on the quality and accuracy of your product feed. The more information you include, higher the chances your product listings ads will perform better.
