I'm not sure if you have to have a merchant account and or merchant number to start my business
Re: I'm not sure if you have to have a merchant account and or merchant number to start my business
When you start a new business and wish to accept credit cards as payment, you typically set up merchant account, which is with a bank or third party that will process your payments. This could be wanted to start your business, but it would not be required.
With that said, none of this has to do with Google Shopping / Google Merchant Center, nor would you need this to start your business. You would use this great AdWords platform to sell products, promote your business and therefore build your business.
Perhaps I do not understand the question, to which, my apologies. If you care to provide more info, we could surely provide more assistance.
