What is Unit price measurement?
The unit_pricing_measure attribute contains information about how units of a product variant are measured. Together with a base measure, it's used as an input to calculate unit prices (unit_price). If you use the unit pricing measure, then use the unit pricing base measure [unit_pricing_base_measure] attribute to include the denominator for your unit price. To make the unit prices more comparable for all ads and free listings on a page, your product might show a different base measure than what you provide here.
Let's say you are selling 20m Satin silk with $60 for the price and the base measure is 1m (or 2, or whatever), the unit pricing measure would be 20m and the unit price would be $3/1m, for instance
With this, your customers can see the unit price in detail without wondering about it and they may not hesitate to click the link. Here is how it displays on the Google shopping tab:
It is a recommended attribute that Google Merchant uses to assess the measure and dimension of a given product without shipping packaging. It should be a positive number and the format has the be: Numerical value + Unit: 1m, 50ml, 16.9oz, etc
The unit measurement has to be expressed in one of the accepted units:
Positive number plus unit
Is it required or optional?
Unit price measurement is what Google looks at when trying to understand the unit pricing information of an item
Broadly speaking, it's optional & highly recommended for Hardware, Office Supplies, Food, Beverages, Flooring, Business Cards, Perfume, etc. because your customer might be interested in the price per unit for your product and it falls into one of the categories above, then we recommend that you submit the unit pricing measure [unit_pricing_measure] attribute.
Note that you may be required to provide this information based on local laws or regulations. It is mandatory in some countries (EU and Switzerland) where it is required by laws: UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, and the Netherlands
