  • Easily create or connect a Google Merchant Center Account
  • Sync all of your Shopify products and get them ready for Shopping ads
  • Keep products up-to-date with automatic sync after every change

The Google Shopping channel automatically syncs all of your Shopify products and required settings to your Google Merchant Center Account. This makes it easier to create Shopping ads from your AdWords Account, because you won't have to upload a CSV file to your Merchant Center Account or manually verify your store domain.

This channel doesn't create Shopping ads. To do that, you’ll have to create an AdWords Account, link it to your Merchant Center Account, and create a Shopping campaign. When you link your Merchant Center Account to your Shopping campaign, all of the products synced through this channel will appear in Google ads.

To use this channel you need to sell in US currency and ship to the United States (not exclusively).

You'll be able to:



  • Create or connect your existing Merchant Center Account

  • Sync products to your Merchant Center Account and get them ready for ads

  • Sync product category, custom labels and other Google fields for each product

  • Automatically sync and verify your store domain, currency, shipping, and tax settings

  • Understand the status of your products and fix errors

Note:



  • We welcome your feedback at googlebeta@shopify.com

  • Sign up to be notified when this channel will be available to stores that sell in non-US currency

  • The old Google Shopping app was removed from the app store on November 10, 2017
  • FAQ

    What is Google Shopping?

    Google Shopping consists of two platforms: Google AdWords and Google Merchant Center. By setting up these two platforms, your products are advertised on Google when someone searches for them. Your product feed is based on the products in your Shopify store and is synced to your Merchant Center Account. Google AdWords lets you create a Shopping campaign, set a budget, and manage ads. This channel helps you create a product feed for your Merchant Center Account.

    If I am moving over from the old Google Shopping app will all my data be lost?

    No. We transfer all of your product data from the old Google Shopping app to the new Google Shopping app. This includes all of your product feed information, custom labels, brand and product category.

    Can I add custom labels and product category for the products?

    Yes. You can add this extra information to your products after they sync into the app. If you had the old Google Shopping app installed all of the customer labels and the product category will be automatically synced for you.

    Does this channel make ads for me?

    No. This channel makes it easier to create a product feed and sync it to your Merchant Center so that you don’t have to manually upload a CSV file with all of your products.

    Are my products automatically visible on Google?

    No. Only you can see your products until you create a Shopping campaign through Google AdWords.

    How do I advertise my products on Google Shopping?

    You'll have to create an AdWords Account and link it to your Merchant Center Account. From AdWords, you can create a Shopping campaign, set your budget, and select the product feed you imported with the Shopify Google Shopping channel. Shopping ads will run on synced products.

The old app was much better.
No search option.
No Custom labels via bulk csv

The app itself works perfectly fine. But it might take some efforts to get approved by Google (that what other 1-star-reviewers complain about). However, to get the approval from Google is trivially simple - you just have to have a legitimate shop set up and running.

No Canadian support from a Canadian company. I heard a new app is in the works. Can't come fast enough. This is a simple data feed after all.

useless, instead give an option to generate feed without variants, shame on Shopify with this app with such bad reviews and still they do nothing to improve.

My old app was FINE and everything published. New app did not publish some of my products and now they are NOT APPROVED. CMON shopify! You can do better than this. Work out the quirks before doing a HASTY RELEASE! Your messing up stores doing this!

Not working. Need support for different currency!

Total disaster, avoid at all cost. YOU WILL LOSE BUSINESS. YOU WILL LOSE SALES. YOU WILL GET GOOGLE VIOLATION. YOU WILL LOSE YOUR POSITION. YOU WILL GET ERRORS. THIS IS TOTAL MESS. STICK WITH THE OLD APP. MOST LIKELY THIS WILL MAKE YOU GO OUT OF BUSINESS AS YOUR GOOGLE SHOPPING CAMPAIGN WILL BE ALL MESSED UP AND WILL RESET PRODUCT IDS WITH GOOGLE MERCHANT CENTER IN MANY CASES AND YOU WILL LOSE YOUR PRODUCT DATA AND HARD WORK. DO NOT USE. THIS IS A TOTAL JUNK. SHOPIFY IS FORCING YOU TO USE THIS NEW SALES CHANNEL. OBJECT IT RIGHT NOW.

Don't use this app. It will submit the highest shipping cost (instead of the lowest) to Google. Your product will cost $25 and it will tell Google the shipping will be $75. Nobody will buy your product when they see you charge $75 for shipping.

Shopify really needs to get its act together on this one!
