No GTIN value in Google Merchant XML when field is empty

Postby edwin@.....tk » Wed Feb 08, 2017 4:03 pm

I use the Google Merchant export,
In my productdata from Virtuemart i have no values in the GTIN field.
In the Google Merchant XML every product without a GTIN value get the following value in the XML
Code: Select all
<g:gtin>FALSE</g:gtin>


The problem is that this way the product may be rejected.
Could you please leave the GTIN value out of the XML when it is empty in the VM product.
This way Google Merchant Center doesn't give any errors.

the product will get rejected if there is NO value.

actually,i see there is once again a change in this and probably "identifier_​exists" should be used as well.

i will add this shortly. i got the FALSE value from one of my clients per google support.

best regards, stan
