By integrating your product feed into Google Merchant Center, you will be able to do what you do best – expanding the business. All the complexities of updating product ads based on the inventory status will be done automatically by ‘Merchant Center’ and that too without incurring extra cost. Here are some more cool features that you are definitely going to admire:

  • You can use customize ad templates that will auto change the ads based on the product on display. It has been observed that when rich customization is enabled, it results in higher conversion rate.
