Google merchant center product types

Hi. I have digital services to sell. This means that no product is shipped. Anyone can buy this service online and he/she is entitled to use the service. 

Can I do that through GMC or it is for tangible products only?

Thanks.

Hi Christos
Yes, Google allows the promotion of digital goods that do not require additional software in order to be purchased.

It does depend on the digital product being sold and there are restrictions. Please see here : https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/2770285?hl=en

Hi Dave and thanks.
I read that but I do not feel sure that the content in the link answers safely my question. For example: I have a subscription service to sell. This is related to providing tech support. The client purchases this service and is covered for 12 months.
That is all. By reading the Services page I am not sure I get the exact answer on such "product".

From the Service Restrictions, it sounds like you can't advertise tech support subscriptions. It sounds like this would be included in the "Business Services, including locksmith, plumbing and psychic reading services.", which is not allowed.
