Bad luck if you had a Google Shopping campaign(s) which was working really well up to this point. It does appear that you can set up the new feed and get it approved before deleting the old one though (I think):

I know you are all sick of hearing how important mobile / smartphone traffic is these days, but here’s a wee summary from Google about Butlin’s in case you were still on the fence about it :-
Some of these work very well given enough conversions data, but beware of not setting a max cpc bid limit and beware of messages telling you that spend is being massively limited by your max bid limit e.g. 98% of spend limited! It’s telling me, explicitly, that I could be getting a huge amount of extra traffic, an, implicitly, that I wouldn’t be paying any extra for conversions. However, the bid strategy above is using a Max CPC that is *the same* as the target CPA! So unless the conversion rate gets better than 100% ! I’ll be leaving the max bid limits where they are thanks very much…

NB – Most of the earnings came from the PPC / AdWords Vouchers page. Google AdSense can make you a reasonable amount of money from your web site if you are in the right niche, and you have a decent amount of traffic. PPCNI has an absolutely tiny amount of traffic compared to most sites, but still managed to make approx $733 USD / €630 EUR / £570 GBP in a year from AdSense. It’s easy to sign up and become part of the Google Display Network if you want to give it a try.
