Hi Srikumar

Please see these two helpful links

There are specific regulations in terms of digital goods and ebooks.
Although you can list, be sure to make yourself familiar with these, using
the links above.

Thanks Tom, Buut i didn't find the policy for my product. rather i couldn't allocate my product to any of the category.

I am in the certification business where i provide certification to the consumers who enroll in the course. I have an ecommerce site and the training is provided physically in a classroom.

So which category it fits? Secondly is this allowed in shopping campaigns?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Your initial question was about ebooks, not about a service or subscription.
The category as far as I can tell is Media > Books
A service can not be listed on Google Shopping.



An ebook can be listed if no additional software is required.

Remember that Google's Policy is very complicated, so maybe this answer is not what you are looking for. But just ask away and we will eventually get there Smiley Happy

I don't think you can advertise certificates thorough shopping campaign as i had seen the same case for SSL certificate products. Kindly check and search yourself, you will not find any of such products in shopping campaign.
