  • 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.

Why release this when it's US$ only? It's a joke???

posted

This app is useless only works if your store sells in USD. Shopify needs to fix this asap!

posted

USD only, useless, why even bother releasing it?

posted

Useless. USD only and no way to uninstall it.

Not sure why this app is getting all of the negative reviews. It works very well and it has been attributing to the majority of the sales on my store. It is a must try!

Doesn't work, Shopify at it again with only allowing USD businesses. Probably about time to change platform if this is how they treat long term customers Shopify Customers.

No EUR currency option.
Only catalog in USD currency is accepted.

Negative 5 stars. This failed app is causing us thousands in loss sales. Did not want to update due to the reviews, but Shopify forces the upgrade. A month later fail to publish products stating invalid GTIN. They were valid before the update. Several reinstall and several re-syncs and still fail. Makes no sense why the older app is not an option when they are implemented differently.

Worthless app by Google, rejects all uploads, and finds errors. Not easy to intergrate at all. Then when you set the mailing rate it then tells you to do it again and again. I removed this app twice and restarted the app twice. Same issues!
Google this is the worst app ever, whoever came up with this app should be fired ASAP!

Does not transmit necessary values (color, material for example) unless an additional, unnecessary, and sometimes impossible variant is added.
Necessary field values should be editable either via metatag or the dialog should contain an option to add these values without messing with UX.
