Google Merchant Center: A few basic questions....

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Please help me out here...

Is the Google Merchant Center / Google Shopping also for stores that only display products with a price but WITHOUT a Buy now button?

If yes, how do I register a 2nd website in the account?

 

Thanks

There has to be a way to purchase the product on the site. If there's no buy now button then I'm guessing that means you can't purchase the product so you couldnt have that store in GMC/Google Shopping.
