Policy update: Linked account suspension

December 2022

A custom icon for Merchant Center Classic and Merchant Center Next.

We’ve updated our Abuse of the network policy.  

What’s changing

We’ve updated our prohibited practices to include a new account issue status, “Linked account suspension”. This new issue status is a clarification of our existing enforcement to provide retailers with better instructions on how to resolve their account issues. This issue status means that a suspended Google Ads account is linked to your Merchant Center account. The Google Ads suspension must be fixed first before your Merchant Center suspension can be reviewed. Learn more about our abuse of the network policies to ensure your account and products are active with full functionality

Note: Removing or unlinking the suspended Google Ads account from your Merchant Center account won’t unsuspend or resolve your Merchant Center account issue
