Use custom labels
In google shopping campaigns, you have the option of using custom labels when you want to sub-divide the products in the campaign using values of your choice. For example, with custom labels you can indicate if the products are seasonal, on clearance, etc. These values can then be selected to use for monitoring, reporting, and bidding in your Shopping campaign. It is an easy process, see this Using Custom Labels.
Unique product identifiers go beyond the id attribute to define the product you're selling in the global marketplace. Common unique product identifiers include Global Trade Item Numbers (GTINs), Manufacturer Part Numbers (MPNs), and brand names. Providing unique product identifiers, especially GTINs, can make your ads richer and easier for users to find.
