(a) the impression statistics within the ad-account indicates that
items are winning in the auctions and shopping-ads are being seen,
specially with respect to multiple target-countries.

(b) generally, never use live searches to search for shopping-ads --
such actions typically indicate to google that the item is not useful
and may therefore harm performance in the auctions over time.

(c) currently, there is no such tool, offered by google, that will
show what others may be seeing, with respect to shopping-ads.

for example, if a user is located in the u.k. google offers no
mechanism to see any google-shopping results for the u.s. --
or any other country; currently, u.k. users located in the u.k.
can only see u.k. results, by design.

if some shopping-ad items have very high quality, or a very high bid,
or some combination, to win slots in the ad-auctions on google-search,
then google's ad-preview-and-diagnosis-tool may show shopping-ads
within other target-countries, by changing the default configuration --
but there is currently no such tool offered by google for shopping-ads
directly within google-shopping.

Install Zenproxy, if you're using Chrome (might also be available on Firefox). Select USA from the drop down, and that will allow you to browse the internet as if you're located in the US.

Hi Bianca 

Thank you, I will look into this. I did find an application called Location Guard, which seems to be working although not sure I understand it! Thanks again
