Shopping vs PLA performance

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I recently set up a shopping campaign to run cocurrently with my traditional PLA campaign. The bids I had for the shopping campaign products are the same as my PLA campaign. However I'm seeing a much higher cost/conv and a slightly higher CTR for my shopping campaign. Has anyone seen similar things? Any idea why?

after creating a new product-listing-ad shopping-campaign,
be certain to pause any regular-product listing-ad-campaign
that is advertising the same products; otherwise, there will
be direct competition among those items.

also, if the regular-product-listing-ad campaign had any
abstract or self-created groups using adwords_labels or
adwords_grouping, consider transitioning these to using
custom_label_ attributes.
