Selling Products Through Amazon and Ebay. Can I Use Adwords Too - Is there Any Restrictions?

The issue with Amazon, Ebay and Etsy is that there is a high chance they are already or will advertise your products on Google Shopping, when you yourself advertise the same products at the same time than this is a violation with regards to double serving policy which is not allowed.

 

The only way to resolve this is by contacting the other marketplaces and request them to not advertise for your products, however I have never found anyone being able to reply and get success with this request.

 

As a double serving is a serious violation, a permanent suspension is highly likely. Even if its not your fault, Google considers 1 business selling the product the same from direct ads, to indirect ads.

 

My personal recommendation is that if you are successful on Amazon and eBay, to than not use Google Shopping. However if its not successful, than maybe move to Google Shopping.

 

Hope it helps.
