Guidelines

To make sure you submit high-quality data for your products, follow these requirements and best practices.

Minimum requirements

To use this attribute to upload your product's data, follow these minimum requirements. If your attribute is disapproved, we'll notify you in the Key Actions page of your Manufacturer Center account. 

  • Start with http or https and comply with RFC 3986. For example: http://www.example.com/writing/fiji-pens
  • Use your verified domain name. Make sure to use the domain name that you registered during account setup. Replace any symbols or spaces with URL encoded entities. For example, if your URL contains an &, then replace it with %26.

Best practices

To optimize your product data's performance, follow these best practices: 

  • Use a stable URL. The URL that you include shouldn’t change unless your landing page moves. For example, don’t use URLs with timestamps or parts that could change each time you submit your product data. 
  • Pre-select the correct variant. Link to your landing page with the correct variant selected. Still remember to submit your variant details through the appropriate attributes such as color [color], size [size], and age group [age_group].
  • Use Schema.org microdata. Use microdata to indicate how elements on your landing page correspond with your product data. Specifically, make sure that your microdata matches the variant displayed on your landing page. Learn more about microdata
