multipack: Definition

Use the multipack attribute to indicate that you’ve grouped multiple identical products for sale as one item.

This attribute lets us show your ad in the right situations by distinguishing your item from manufacturer-created multipacks, bundles, and other products.

Guidelines

Follow these guidelines to make sure you submit high-quality data for your products and get the best performance from your ads.

Minimum requirements

These are the requirements you'll need to meet to show ads for your product. If you don't follow these requirements, we'll disapprove your product and let you know in the Diagnostics page of your Merchant Center account. 

  • Submit the number of manufacturer-defined, individual products that you’ve grouped together. For example, if you’ve grouped together 3 individual pens, then you would submit 3. If you’ve grouped together three 20-packs of pens, then you would also submit 3.
  • Don’t submit multipack for a manufacturer-defined multipack. If you’re selling a single multipack that was packaged by the manufacturer, then don’t use the multipack attribute. To include the number of units, instead use the unit_pricing_measure attribute.

Examples
