Promotions tab missing

Hi

 

I seem to be missing the "promotions" tab in the merchant account.  I have been told that it should be between "Products" and "Assortment", but its not there in my account.  Does it have to be "turn on" somewhere?

 

Thanks

the promotions-tab within the merchant-center-account
must be turned-on by a person at google -- typically,
only after reviewing the submitted interest-form and
accepting the merchant into the promotions-program --

which can take a few business-days.

not all merchants get accepted into the program.

also, currently, the merchant-promotions-program is
available only in a limited subset of target-countries.

if google has indicated acceptance into the program then,
try signing-out of and signing-in to, the main google-account --

before accessing the merchant-center --
https://merchants.google.com/Home?#merchantdashboard

otherwise, a support-specialist for
the merchant-promotions-program
may be contacted --
