Hi Adnan T

 

Yes, it is now a requirement to link both accounts together.

 

Linking Adwords & Google Merchant Center

 

You will then be required to set up PLA's or Shopping Campaign(s) for your items.

 

Shopping Campaigns

PLA's (Product Listing Ad's) 

 

This is now a paid service. This uses a combination of feed quality/content and bid amount, set within your settings.

 

If you require any further assistance please let us know.

So does that mean I have to pay to get my items listed into google shopping? or is there a free way to do this?

Yes, you now have to pay to be listed in Google Shopping. There is no free way to list products.
