    Hi David,


    Thank you for your feedback.


    I'm working on improving our Google Shopping feed setup to include additional validation messages to help sellers optimize their Google Shopping listings.


    As you found, there is no method to dismiss or acknowledge feed validation warning messages other than making changes to your feed accordingly.


    Please note, skus with warnings are still sent to Google Merchant Center, even though they do not appear as "valid" in the feed setup. I know this is confusing for users.

    Also, the percentage in the top right of the feed setup is a calculated feed score made by our system, not the percentage of skus submitted. Since the feed shows more warnings, the feed score went down.

    For more details about the feed validation, check out Compiling Feeds & Feed Validation in our Help Center.


    I am working on re-vamping the feed validation metrics to be clear and concise, so that you can quickly identify issues or warnings, and clearly see what is submitting and not submitting. I think with the updates I'm making, there won't be a need for acknowledging or dismissing warnings or recommendation messages in the feed validation. We will make an announcement about the updated feed setup in the coming months.
