    Google shopping product availibility


    When listing in google shopping, do I need to both include the product availability in the feed and on the webpage? I've been told I need to show the stock situation on the web page, and make it match the feed, but a lot of my competitors that are on google shopping do not show the stock availability on their web page,

    Thanks

    Just upload the feed and see what happens! The worst Google can do is reject it.

    I've been using the Shopping Channel for a few months now and noticed that it does report discrepancies between pricing and availability but I don't list availability on our site. However, because I use Shopify, the API may be getting availability data directly from our store admin area. So you will probably get picked up on discrepancies.

    One missing parameter that I am constantly picked up on is colour but Google doesn't yet penalise you for that it seems.
