Each distributor/trading partner's downstream system consumes data differently from the GDSN.

Examples below:

  • They limit product descriptions with character limits

  • They use "benefits" in place of "marketing description"

  • "marketing description" is used in place of "benefits" 

This is the intended purpose of View My Product - so that you can see exactly how your trading partner is consuming your data!

We recommend that you publish "manufacturer description" through your GS1 data pool provider as most trading partners store this information.

If you feel your information is still in error, we recommend making sure all of your GTIN's are correct, along with reaching out to us or your trading partner to help you resolve the discrepancies.
