Help: First steps on Google Merchant

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I've set up a Google Merchant account, upload my products feed.

What should I do now? Are my ads going to be online on their own within few hours?


Do I have to create a Shopping Campaign with Adwords to be present on Google Merchant or not?


Thank you for any help!

As you said you already uploaded products then simply i can say "Once you do this, your ads should start running within 12 to 72 hours."

Hi English,
Welcome to the AdWords Community!


If you'd like your products to appear in Google Product Listings Ads, then yes, you should create a Google Shopping Campaign.  Below are some links that you may find useful.  Your Product Listing Ads will not be active until you've setup a Google Shopping Campaign.  


Hope this helps!
