How to add google shopping to a directory?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello,

I have a directory website that just showcases products from other websites.

How can I add links to show Google pricing from vendors to a specific item

that my visitor is reviewing?

 

Example: My visitor is viewing a espresso machine.

I would like to give them a button to view pricing from other retailers to find

a good price while remaining in my site.

 

Also, is there a referral commission paid if my viewer buys from their site?

My directory is only a service and not a retail store.

 

Regards

the short answers are no and no.

at one time, google offered their shopping-search-api,
that did allow for google-shopping-like results, within
a website --  there was never any referral commission.

unfortunately, google has long since retired their shopping-search-api
and any such access to shopping-ads -- such as viewing pricing-data

from other retailers -- is no longer allowed.

google-shopping is now all paid shopping-ads --
google strictly controls access to such ads.
