A Merchant Center inventory feed is a catalog of the products you want to sell. It provides a standard format for describing each product. In this format, each aspect of your product is called a product attribute. For example, you specify the brand of the product in the brand attribute, the name of the product in the product title attribute, the price in the price attribute and so on. Merchant Center requires you to specify a few basic product attributes for every product in the feed, and you can specify many more optional attributes to create rich product descriptions.
From Search Ads 360, you can view the product attributes that you've defined for a feed, as well as the value of the attributes for each product in the feed:
