Hi

 

I am a bit confused ..if i upload a product feed to merchant centre what are the costs to get the items displayed / clicked.

 

I see an option to link to adwords..but is that an "extra" feature for another sort of display.

 

Thanks

 

Roy

payments are per click.

there is no charge to use the merchant-center per se.

account linking is used to link the merchant-center-account
to the adwords-account -- the adwords-account is used to
create the (shopping) ad campaign and set the budget and

bid for the items (from the product-feed) that you wish to

enter into the ad auctions, to potentially display in results.

a bid is required to enter the auctions.

product-listings-ads (google-shopping)
is a competitive pay-per-click ad auction.
