Required according to the Unique Product Identifier Rules for all target countries except for Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, India, Mexico, Norway, Poland, Russia, Sweden, and Turkey. This attribute is recommended for Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, India, Mexico, Norway, Poland, Russia, Sweden, and Turkey.
Note: Do not provide your store name as the brand unless you manufacture the product.
The Manufacturer Part Number is used to reference and identify a product using a manufacturer specific naming other than GTIN. MPNs are assigned by a manufacturer. MPNs should typically be specific to a single unique product. For example, different colors of a product should have different MPNs.
Products are categorized in Google Shopping according to the Google product taxonomy. While Google cannot guarantee that a product will show in a particular category, you can increase the chances of your products being included in the most relevant categories by sending them highly structured information for your items.

1. Data :Non Required Fields
You are recommended to provide the following product information for each unique item you submit if it exists, is relevant, and if the information fits into the accepted values for the following detailed product attributes as:
1 A. Product Condition.
This option allows you to change the product condition in the Google Shopping Feed on the product level. Go to your product and select the product condition that is aberrant from the default condition.
1 B. Category configuration.

2. Advanced Options.
By default prices are shown incl. Tax so only change this option if necessary.
If the feed export is without tax it's possible to add it with this option.
This new attribute was created for shops that offer custom goods without an identifier like GTIN or MPN.Custom goods are hand knitted sweaters or antique furniture or vintage items. The ‘Identifier Exists’ field can be used to indicate that an identifier does not exist for certain products: Identifier exists = false. Not required for regular goods.
The ‘product type’ attribute also indicates the category of the product being sold.
Product Types gives you more control over how your products are segmented as it uses your Magento Category structure. The benefit of Product Types is that here you don’t have to use Google’s predefined set of categories, instead you can categorise them however you would like, for example you can follow your own Magento Category hierarchy. Read more about the difference between the Google category taxonomy here.
