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. 

  • The min_energy_efficiency_class value must be smaller than the max_energy_efficiency_class value. For example, your scale most run from A to D rather than D to A. 
  • The energy_efficiency_class value you provide must be within the range of the min_efficiency_class value and the max_energy_efficiency_class value. For example, if your range runs from A to D, your energy_efficiency_class value may not be G.
