How to Install Shopify Shopping

By now, you should have high-performing Site Wide ads that are sending traffic to your website/Shopify store and showcasing your brand, but you might be wondering about how you can also get your products to show up on Google Shopping.

As a reminder, Google Shopping Campaigns or Product Listings Ads (PLAS) are campaigns that are product based, which show the product image and the price. (See example below!)

Shopping campaigns are a great way to show off your great products and visually grab the attention of your potential customers with visuals on specific items—and they’re complementary to Site Wide campaigns.

For Shopify customers, especially, it’s easy to get started! Here’s a guide on how to do it.

How to Install Shopify Shopping
