A Simple Fix for Google Shopping / Sales Channel Product Errors on Shopify...

October 31, 2022

Did your custom made products get errors for no gtin or mpn? 

Let's fix that . . . 

In a flash, those messages will vanish and hopefully your Shopify Store traffic will pick up soon after.

Did you notice in the popup description window in the Google Shopping app? Me, too. But this is not the section where I fixed the issue on WorleyStudios.com 

Nope, instead if you click on your settings and find the "Apps and sales channel" tab. From there find the Google channel. 

This is where you can edit ALL of your products in bulk and also where you'll find a mysterious "barcode" field. Paste this in it: [identifier_exists] [no]

You will still want to make sure under the Custom Product field you select "True"

We do have custom products because we're savvy like that. 

Once you update all your wonderful, handmade goods with this info that error you were getting for no manufacture part number will be gone - instantly.

Anyhow, I just wanted to get this info out ASAP because it gave me so much grief for such a long time and this kind of thing shouldn't bog down hard working craftsmen.

One last thing . . .

Since this article is so short and I don't want to waste anyone's time with a long story to help out rankings, could you do me a quick favor and leave a comment letting me know how the solution worked for you? It would really help get this out to more people.

Have a fantastic day -
