    Have you submitted your feed as "test" first to make sure everything is fine ? (i.e. No errors and google read the feed correctly)

    Also it can take some time for google base to compute your newly submitted feed (usually a few hours + a few more hours for your product to appear in google product search once everything is ok in your merchant account)

    No it can't be right, you shouldn't be waiting that long for a review. Have you tried to contact their support ? They'll surely be able to tell you exactly what's wrong and how to sort this out.

    Found support and asked for help, seems crazy as others seem to get accepted within 24 hours.

    Just a thought although I dont have any issues with the quality of the feed, would anyone have a working template they can share - would be a great help.

    I think working template will not be good to use, thus do it from scratch.

    What is the benefit of google merchant?

    I set up an account and tried submitting a feed multiple times and although the feed had no errors it was not accepted. I then contacted support to ask what we wrong with my feeds and they replid by back by sending me an account has been suspended for violating their shit notice. My account or website did not violate anything, I double checked.

    After this I gave up on google merchant because I could not figure out the benefit of it. My products still show up when I search in google shopping so what does google merchant do for me?
