I have set up a promotion in merchant centre and it has been approved and showing as "visible"


I am however unable to trigger it myself on Google?  How is it triggered to display

visible simply indicates the promotion is eligible to show.

first, the item must win a slot in the auctions --
then, only items that meet all the criteria of
the promotion will display that promotion as
a product-listing-ad, special-offer link.

for example, if the promotion criteria is set for all products then,
only product-listing-ads on will trigger a promotion --
not under google-shopping.

for example, the current time must be within any time criteria.

otherwise, not seeing a specific promotion does not necessarily
indicate that the item and promotion are not displaying for others --
rather, check under the shopping-campaign for coupon/special-offer
click-types and impression statistics to help verify that the promotion
is being seen by others.

otherwise, a merchant-promotions-specialist may be contacted directly --
