Out of stock products

Does Google not show out of stock products in PLAs? We sell some high price items that we wouldn't usually keep in stock and which people buy to order anyway.

 

Thanks

Hey J

I am not 100% sure but you can create adwords_label with a value of "Item in stock" or "Item out of stock". Then apply a filter to your product ad where adwords_label = in stock.

generally, only in stock items are eligible to appear.

the promotion of items which are not kept (physically) in stock
by the merchants who sell them is a policy violation -- and is
grounds for disapproval of the items or website or suspension
from the program, at any time.

 

the availability data for an item must be accurate, adhere to the

current policies, and reflect the merchant's physical stock status

and delivery time frames -- or is otherwise a policy violation.

an adwords_labels attribute cannot be used to circumvent the policies;

adwords_labels is mainly for grouping products for different bidding

strategies and, importantly, is not supported in shopping-campaigns.
