Merchant Center Shipping Setup for Google Shopping
1 month ago
Hi I have a Shopify Store and I'm trying to set up the shipping in my Google Merchant Center.
Does anyone have a template on how you set up FREE SHIPPING? On my Shopify store I also offer products for Free but the customer has to pay the shipping. So if you have a way I can set this up that will be helpful. Also, I would like to sell in various countries. Do I have to set up each country one by one? Thanks!

(a) for free-shipping, a fixed-rate shipping value of 0.00
may be set up within the the merchant-center-account:
(b) if only some items have free shipping, then a shipping_label
may be submitted to google, and used as a filter in the setting --
but in this case, that is likely not needed (see (c)).
(c) however, importantly perhaps, free items cannot be submitted as
shopping-ads and is grounds for disapproval, or a suspension from
the program, at any time.
all such items with a price of zero cannot be submitted, at all.
free products are not allowed.
(d) as to other countries, if a feed-file is currently being used,
then simply use google's automated-currency-conversion-settings --
add any additional countries, under the feed's setting-page.
a shipping-setting must also be set up, for each country targeted --
a separate shopping-campaign must also be added per country;
there are additional requirements if the languages are different.
if the website does not natively support a target-country, with fixed-prices
and the proper currency, proper language, proper e-commerce-checkout,
and a separate set of landing-pages, per target-country, then only google's
currency-conversion-feature is allowed.
if a feed-file is not currently being used, so the settings can be added --
and the website does not currently support other countries, natively with
separate landing-pages -- then other countries cannot be targeted, at all.
for details on how to prevent such free items
from being submitted -- or supporting other
countries -- the best likely course would be
to contact shopify-support directly.
