Closing Ecommerce Store and All Related Google Accounts

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I am closing an ecommerce store and do not intend to reopen that store. Do I need to delete my Merchant Center, Google Analytics and Google Adwords accounts. I would also like to delete the gmail account since it is the same name as my store. Also, do I have to delete the products showing in my Merchant Center feed? 

 

Thank you for any input.

 

Robert

Hi Robert, how are things?

If you're closing the e-commerce, is not mandatory that you delete/remove every account associated with it some how, but it would be a good thing to do if you think from the user site.

Although there's nothing running, your pasted digital actions can leave some historical data behind, and it can be frustrating for the user to find for a product on a store that no longer exists.

This is how you can finish you Adwords account:

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info. If it is not mandatory to delete/remove every account how do I stop our Merchant Center account from attempting to access the web store. We removed the analytics tracking code prior to shut down of web store. In retrospect, we think we would like to suspend all activity while rethinking whether or not to set up new store with same url in a different format and with different host. I do not want to violate any Google policies.

Thanks for your input.
