multipack [multipack]: Definition

Use the multipack [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.

Minimum requirements

These are the requirements that 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 on 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 three 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 [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 [multipack] attribute. To include the number of units, instead use the unit_pricing_measure [unit_pricing_measure] attribute.
