Hi Everyone,

I couldn't find answer for this in previous posts.

I make handmade clothing so we don't have product number, on screenshot it comes up with error "brand and upc/ean/jan"

Do I have to put sizes separately or have to do them one by one?

First, Welcome to eCRATER.
For handmade clothing, "brand and upc/ean/jan" are optional, but if you don't have brand AND upc/ean/jan number, then you must also use identifier_exists with a value of False (or no, either is accepted). If you want to use your brand and identifier_exists, that's fine. It can take weeks for the message from eCRATER to go away once the attributes were submitted to Google Shopping incorrectly. They have to wait until a new feed to GS, for GS to respond.

For clothing, you also must state gender, age range, color and size. If you post in an eCRATER global category that covers gender and age range (such as Clothing & Shoes > Women's Clothing >) then eCRATER will submit those 2 attributes for you. Color must be for one item. If the item has more than one color (like Ivory with black trim), list the primary color first then the secondary colors separated by a forward slash (like ivory/black). The size attribute can only contain one size. If your item comes in S, M, L, XL. then you will need to create 4 listings, one for each size. Make sure your size is listed early in your title so Google Shopping will see they are different listings and not exclude them as duplicate listing. If your item comes in different colors, you'll need a separate listing for each size in each color. For example, an item in 2 colors available in 4 sizes would require 8 listings.

Most of this information is available in your store admin by clicking on the ? to the right of the Attribute Table or selecting MORE OPTIONS: > Promote My Store in the left navigation.

While that may seem like a lot of work, having each size/color be a different listing makes things much clearer to buyers and you don't have to emails them if they don't indicate what size or color that they need. Also, the more listings you have, the more listings people can see and visit your store.

While very true, it would be nice if there were some automated knitting together of listings so they could read "also available in size 8 and 10". Maybe this is what variants is/was supposed to address.

Could be. Yet at the same time if someone only has 4 listings in their store, to add in the different colors or sizes will help the bots see them more.
