Google Trusted Stores - why the need for Google Shopping Item Id

Hi,

 

We are looking to implement Google Trusted Stores, but looking at the integration steps, the code is asking for google shopping item id.  I know it's optional, but why does Google need to know this?  Does giving these data provide any benefits to the merchant's google shopping campaigns?

Hi Uly,

 

I'm not 100% sure why Google is requesting item IDs, but I think it likely that they would use that information to associate product reviews placed through Google Trusted Stores with your products on Google Shopping. That would be a good thing, as it would give the products in your Google Shopping campaign more credibility, so I recommend providing the item IDs if you're able.

 

You can learn more about Google Shopping product ratings here: https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/6059553?hl=en

 

I hope that's helpful!
