    Hi @dougn7110,

    The reported error generally comes when your domain is already claimed in some other merchant center account.

    If that is the case you need to login into your merchant center account and un-claim the domain from the existing account. And then claim the new account via plugin and it should work fine.

    Also, the error may popup if you have only one merchant center account in which domain was claimed manually then you can refer to this FAQ to address the domain claim problem.

    Hope the above helps. Please let us know in case you have further questions.


    I have followed all the instructions to claim the domain. I am able to get through the process except the error does not go away.

    I have unverified the domain from Google Merchant Centre, following the instructions in the FAQ.

    When I click the link to verify the domain, I get an error “auth/account_access_denied – User cannot access accounts …” and lists the IDs for the merchant centre account and the Google Ads account.

    But I have literally just gone through the onboarding/relinking process, so how can it be denied access?

    Hi @colfetski,

    We acknowledge your request.

    Just to mention, we are helping you with the raised request through a different channel.




    I have the same issue except when i click the link to verify and claim i get this error in a popup:

    insufficientPermissions – Request had insufficient authentication scopes.

    My merchant account is verified and claimed and is importing the products no problem but it does not show as verified or claimed in the plugin.
