Google Merchant Center Switch From HTTP to HTTPS

Follower ✭ ☆ ☆

Hi Adwords Community,

We will be switching our site to HTTPS (from HTTP). In the Merchant Center, is this done by changing and re-verifying the website in our active account? (i.e. going to "Business Information" > "About Your Business" > "Website", changing the domain to https and then saving it). Or do we create a mutli-client account and then a new sub-account for the https domain?


Thanks,

 

Marcus

Simply change it under "Business Information" > "About Your Business" > "Website" as soon as the HTTPS version is live and active.

 

Also make sure that the data feed URL's submitted are also with HTTPS

 

Hope it helps.

Is there any formula to change all product and images http URL-s to https on feed at once?

Thanks for confirmation. 

Another question related to this: we are looking to introduce HTTPS page in "chunks" at a time. Is there any issue with migrating chunks of our feed to HTTPS landing pages, before switching the entire merchant center account to be HTTPS?


Thanks,

Marcus

You will need to do everything in 1 go and at the same time without any downtime.

 

Simply first make sure that both http and https are working correctly, than change the links in GMC data feeds and GMC website claiming.

 

Hope it helps.
