Local Product feed - anyone using it?

Hi,

Has anyone been invited to participate in the Local PLAs?

 

We'd like to use them and have filled out the interest form. But there's been no response, and calling Adwords / Merchant Center support has been futile.

 

Thanks for any information on this!

generally, if a merchant has a google-places-account with up-to-date

business information of a brick-and-mortar store located in the u.s.

that has already been selected for the local-shopping program then,

a google-adwords representative will be able to help.

 

otherwise, simply verify all the criteria and requirements of

local-shopping have been met and wait for google to open

up the program to a wider set of merchants in the future.
