Google Merchant vs Google Check Out

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I had successfully used Google Check out with a Weebly website.

 

I would like to use the Google Merchant service but I don't understand how Google Ad words ties in.

 

I tried phone support but was asked a ton of questions without an explanation of the benefits of this service.

the service and this forum relates to purchasing advertising.

unfortunately, this forum has nothing
to do with google-merchant-accounts.

 

google-merchant-accounts and google-checkout

were primarily for payment-flow and somewhat

replaced by google-wallet and google-play.

a google-merchant-center account is for uploading
a list of physical inventory-items to create paid ads --
specifically product-listing-ads; payment is per-click.

a google merchant-center-account and
a google merchant-account simply have
similar names -- but are not the same.
