New Requriement for Google Merchants, Verify & Claim your Website URL by May 18th

If you're submitting your products to Google Product Search, you should know that Google is now requiring merchants to verify and claim their Website URL- This step is important to make sure merchants have the right to upload their product listings for their claimed Website.

In your Google Merchant Center, you will see the message: "From May 18th, you will not be able to submit any product listings unless you have previously claimed your Website URL"

So if you haven't already, make sure to register your Website's URL. The Website URL setting is in your Google Merchant Center account and should be done before you can upload and publish your product listings.

You can also read more about this new requirement through Google's Merchant Center article.
