CREATE SMART SHOPPING CAMPAIGNS The Google Shopping app makes it easier to create online ads for your products. Use the app to connect your Google Merchant Center to your Shopify account, sync your products, connect a Google Ads account (formerly AdWords), and create a Smart Shopping campaign that reaches shoppers all over the internet.

Create a Google Smart Shopping campaign in only a few minutes by setting a daily budget. Google’s Smart Shopping campaign optimizes bidding and ad placement, choosing the best time and place to show the right products to the right shoppers. You only pay when a shopper clicks on your ad. The app automatically places ads where they perform best, such as on desktop or mobile, on Gmail, YouTube, Google Search, and the Google Display Network.

For Google to fully optimize the performance of your campaign we recommend running your campaign for at least 30 (consecutive) days.

If you use your product variants for anything other than colors and sizes (i.e. special offers that you DON'T want published) you are out of luck. This app publishes all variants with no option to exclude. Shopify's advice - duplicate all your products and remove the variants! This is a huge mess for our inventory, customer service, accounting, etc. Forcing us to move to a new app without fixing this issue is very poor! What is an alternative to this app?

A great product, I don't understand the criticisms about this application. for me it took +-3 days, the time that google approved the ads.

I downloaded this after reading through MANY of the reviews and I'm really glad I did. I'm by no means a Google Shopping expert, but I've installed it today and already have all my products approved and eligible in my Merchant Center. I really think that it has a number of poor reviews are because people are expecting this app to do ALL the work in Google Shopping and that's not necessarily the case. It's extremely effective at being an API and bringing products into your merchant center to set up for approval. If you've ever tried it the old way when you had to upload a spreadsheet with the pertinent information, you will definitely appreciate this app. But that being said, you still have to be proactive about logging into your Google Merchant Center Account and identifying any errors it's kicking back. And you still have to have an understanding of the information it's going to ask of you in your Merchant Center Account and how to properly input the data. I read a lot of reviews that said their products have been in "pending" status for weeks on end, which I think is likely because they didn't go in and finish properly setting up each product. You have to add and input all the necessary information, and then it will feed that information directly into your Merchant Center account.
