Before adding a new name, follow the policies to avoid downtime and disapproval. And if you’re receiving an “invalid store name” error in Google Merchant Center, there can be a few reasons. Here are some steps you can take to address this issue:

  • Keep your store name under 25 characters.
  • You can use your website URL or Business name
  • Do not add any trademarks or copyright icons
  • Avoid using any trademarked terms or brand names
  • Make sure there are no unnecessary space
  • Do not add any Inc., Gmbh, Co. etc…
  • Do not add any promotional words
  • Do not add repeated words, special characters, symbols, capitalized words or unnecessary characters
  • Do not use offensive or inappropriate words
  • Follow Google’s editorial guildelines

If you have changed your business name and Google Shopping still has the old name, then make sure you have waited a week for the system to update. Changing the business name will not change Google Shopping instantly.
