When will Google Shopping/PLAs be available in Ireland?

I've heard that Google Shopping was supposed to be launched in Ireland in early 2014, however it is still not available yet. Does anyone know when PLA campaigns will become an option for Irish accounts?

Hi Joanne,

 

Thanks for posting on our Community forum. The best place to find out about Google AdWords product releases and news (including when/where a product is available) is the Inside AdWords blog. You can check out the blog at this link: http://adwords.blogspot.com/

 

Perhaps Celebird or Tom can post some insight on your question.

the current list of supported countries is currently here --
https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/160637

is there a link to where google announced such a release date --
that date sounds more like an insider rumor and google tends
neither to confirm nor deny internal business decisions publicly.

as was already indicated, usually the best place to watch
for formal announcements is within the official google blogs.

as an aside, if the business can meet all the requirements of any
currently supported target-country (google-shopping domain) then

product-listing-ads may be listed -- there is no requirement for the

business to be physically located within a supported target-country.

At a moment there is no way to sell items in Ireland through Google Merchant service. Hopefully in early 2015 Google will launch service in Ireland.

Yes, it's looking like it will be 2015 if at all. I think the priority at shopping is getting the updated feed specs implemented and shopping campaigns migrated.

Joanne, we work with a lot of shopping clients in the US. We'll be covering the Irish rollout, if it happens, extensively. I've already got blog posts prepared Smiley Happy
