Thanks for the response.

 

From what i read, it seems like we are dissaproved because to claims made to certain products & products that imply or claim that they're as effective as prescription erectile dysfunction drugs?

 

But if we are selling male enhancement products how could we go about it? Does it mean we have to sell every single products that we have a review for?

Marked as Best Answer.

Hello again Malereports2012;


My view, is you cannot sell these type of products using AdWords, since they have medical claims that are controversial, and are not clinically proven!

Thanks,

 

I see a lot of competitors and even some of the official website that sell these products have claims that are not backup by any clinical studies, but they are still selling on Google, hence the questions why an dhow are Google letting them get away with, while our products is all natural herbal and no dangerous ingredients at all.

Ok, i've done some research online and asking people about this topics, and someone mentioned to me that only if you own a pharmacy or you need to have some pharmacy license in order to sell non-presription products such as male enhancement on Google.

 

Is that true?

>> i've done some research online and asking people about this topics,

 

All information is accessible, in a clear language, on the Policy page...No need to do any extensive research...
