To display PPU, it is important that the unit_count attribute is correctly filled. Unit count includes a value (unit_count, for example, ‘5’) and a unit type (unit_count_type, for example, ‘Millilitre’, ‘Count’, ‘Gram’). Thereafter, an automated system decides whether PPU should be displayed or not. For example, if the product is a ‘car_seat’ then the system does not display PPU. But if the product is ‘Coffee’, the system does display the PPU. We are constantly reviewing these rules based on customer feedback.
Effective 1 September, 2021, products sold within the consumables product categories listed below will require all new listings to include the unit_count attribute, which was previously optional.
|Health, Household, & Personal Care|
|Pantry Food & Drinks|
The unit count type will be restricted to the following units: gram, metre, millilitre, square metre, and count.
|Item is sold by||Examples|
|Weight||Single pack of coffee beans: 500 grams||unit_count: 500 unit_count_type:gram|
|3 packs of coffee beans: 3 x 500 grams||unit_count: 1500 unit_count_type:gram|
|Volume||Single bottle of Coca Cola: 330 ml||unit_count: 330 unit_count_type:millilitre|
|Pack of 6 bottles of Coca Cola: 6 x 330 ml||unit_count: 1980 unit_count_type:millilitre|
|Count||Single pack of Pampers having 40 nappies||unit_count: 40 unit_count_type:count|
|12 packs of Pampers with 1 pack having 40 nappies: 12 x 40||unit_count: 480 unit_count_type:count|
|Length||1 roll of tape having length 2 metres||unit_count: 2 unit_count_type:metre|
|Pack of 10 rolls of tape with 1 roll having 2 metres||unit_count: 20 unit_count_type:metre|
|Area||1 tile having 1.5 square metre area||unit_count: 1.5 unit_count_type:square metre|
|Pack of 10 titles each having 1.5 square metre area||unit_count: 15 unit_count_type:square metre|
All products sold within the larger consumables product types need to have unit_count and unit_count_type filled.
We recommend using these default values only if you are certain that the products do not need PPU.
