Google shopping campaign and eBay store

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi there 

 

I am part of a company that sells items on a website, we also have a store on eBay. We would like to start a Google shopping campaign and have everything in place. Everything that is for sale on our website is also for sale on our eBay store. I understand that products will already be advertised on Google shopping via eBay. I would like an answer to the question, is running a Google shopping campaign worth it, if potentially all of our products are already advertised via eBay? Would factors such as CPC come into play? (would our website products appear higher in a search is the CPC was higher?)

 

Thank you in advance

If the products are already appearing in Shopping, you shouldn't advertise them yourself. While it is commonplace and not specifically outlawed by Google, and I haven't seen anyone suspended for it yet, the risk of permanent suspension from AdWords is real.
