product-listing-ads do not have any concept
of multiple purchases or a shopping-cart.

items submitted must be for a single item-offer only.

some types of promotions are allowed via the merchant-promotions-program --
but not directly within a standard products-feed and not without first being
accepted into the program.

 

one potential alternative would be to pre-bundle the three items

and submit the bundle with the multipack attribute, as a single

item-offer with a separate link landing-page and price; but, the

promotional discount information could not be mentioned.

 

promotional information directly within a products-feed

is grounds for disapproval or suspension, at any time.

as was indicated, the best likely course would be
to simply contact a support specialist directly --

You can provide promotions via Google's Merchant, but I do not think multibuy is part of the approved promotions. I suggest contacting an Adwords representative to check your request.

...and this is why it's important to include BING when searching for products with quantity discounts. Why does Google think they own our business models. I use quantity discounts on everything. Google search has never produced a positive result while BING nails my sites every time.

Google - it's time for a change. Stop telling us how to run our businesses and start complying with what the world is asking for!

this is a rather old thread.

first, thank you for the additional information and recommendations.

quantity discounts can certainly be used as a business-model,
and quantity discounts can show when searching for products,
with respect to product-listing-ads.

such discount information is simply submitted using
a promotions-feed -- rather than the products-feed.

overall results are mainly determined by the bid and quality of all submitted
data, as measured against search-terms and all other participating merchants.
