    After about a week of trying I couldn’t get variants to display in google shopping, even after reading and watching videos about that feature and being on the phone with googles support.

    I've been using shopify for 2 years and still not able to use the google channel. I've tried everything but my account is still suspended due to "misrepresentation". I thought this would be easily resolved but 2 years later and i have the same issue. I have no idea what I am doing wrong. This shouldn't be so stressful
