All Google Shopping fields are product metafields.
On your Shopify store, all Google Shopping fields are stored as single-line text type product metafields. While validation checking is available when you bulk-edit Google Shopping fields through BPE, you may be able to import almost any value to your Shopify store as Google Shopping fields through CSV Import on BPE. However, if the value you import is not valid as the proper Google Shopping field value, Google Shopping may not be able to retrieve the attribute from your Shopify store even if you have the corresponding product metafield in place, resulting in the attribute not showing properly on your Google Shopping listing. Therefore, it is essential that you make sure the value you upload through CSV is accepted by Google Shopping as an appropriate field value.
