Posting Inventory to Google Storefront

I am completely confused in setting up a Google Storefrontt from my inventory on eBay and ETSY.  Does anyone know of a phone support number for Google that may help me.  I am ready to throw my hands up and quit it is so complicated for those of us who have little computer knowledge.

marketplace items (e.g. ebay, etsy, etc.) simply cannot be
submitted by individual merchants; rather, the marketplace
must submit items on your behalf.

a merchant-center-account is not needed nor allowed --
be certain to delete any and all such feeds from any
existing merchant-center-account, so that the account
is currently quiescent.

then, simply contact the individual marketplace
to ask how to set-up the individual marketplace
shop so that the marketplace might submit an
up-to-date physical inventory list on your behalf;

e.g. contact etsy or ebay support directly.

note that submitting the same physical inventory,
you own, from multiple domains is generally also
not allowed and will create self-competition within
the product-listing-ads auctions -- be certain to
choose only one (marketplace) site to submit items

for listing on google-shopping (product-listing-ads)

if the same similar items exist on multiple sites.

 

as an aside, google-shopping is not a storefront --

currently, nothing can be purchased directly on

google-shopping; rather, google-shopping simply

lists adwords (product-listing) ads that are created

by google using submitted physical inventory lists

and are shown based on winning an ad auction.
