    Individual sizes in product description - what is the LOGIC?
    Please, someone explain why so many of the data feeds from GAN now include a SINGLE size in the product description? Why would I want to show a product that appears to only be available in a size 14??? That would turn others away.

    This is now the norm in data feeds from Catherines, Lane Bryant, Fashion Bug, One Stop Plus, Roamans, Woman Within ... and I'm sure I've left out more.

    It's bad enough they're now including the merchant name as well, but sizes? I have to edit OUT a lot of info on each product now.

    Product feed configuration is based on the merchant data. We'll share your feedback with the advertiser.
    thanks!

    Which means it will go in one ear and out the other ear of the merchant.

    This isn't just a GAN issue.. I have merchants on other networks that do the same thing.

    They think it's helpful, but it's not... I have to build scripts (ie. do more work) to merge all sizes into one product.

    I see a lot of sizing in the product names in Lane Bryant, Fashion Bug, Catherines. If you're using PopShops, and you're Enterprise, there's a workaround instead of editing. DM me to discuss, if you wish. This is probably not the place to talk through the details.
    Be at peace,

    Having all these duplicate products in the feed with various sizes makes it harder to avoid duplicates in my shops too.

    Thanks Caseyfern but I'm not on the Enterprise plan at Popshops ... just Pro level so any editing I do has to be on a per product basis.

    I would love it if feeds only had ONE entry per item, without sizes. I, too, have to clean up some descriptions to remove the size so we ALL don't lose money.

    Oh and yeah, this issue is on more than one network, not just GAN.
