Which countries support Google Merchant Center?

I'm trying to setup a Dynamic Remarketing campaign, which requires Google Merchant Center, but I cannot find out if Google Merchant Center accepts registrations from Taiwan? Both Google Shopping and Product Listing Ads are not available here.

an official list is currently here --

alternatively, specifically for dynamic-remarketing,
'other' may be selected as the business-type if the
merchant-center does not support a target-country --

Thanks. I found the list for Google Shopping, but didn't think it was the same as Google Merchant Center.

first, you're welcome.

yes, the merchant-center is primarily used to feed retail inventory data
into shopping-campaigns for google to create product-listing-ads on
google-shopping -- however, not all supported target-countries offer
google-shopping as a feature; the merchant-center list is still the one
to use to determine supported target-countries for product-listing-ads
and retail-dynamic-remarketing.

that is, product-listing-ads may be available to show
in other places even if the supported-target-country
does not have a separate google-shopping domain.

selecting other allows for a dynamic-remarketing-feed to be submitted
directly via the campaign -- regardless of any merchant-center support
or google-shopping availability.

Hi,

the option "other" is not available anymore, is it possible to use dynamic remarketing without google merchant feed?

Thanks

currently, other (custom) is still available
as a dynamic-remarketing business-type.

 

the merchant-center is only required

if the retail business-type is selected.

if the (other custom) option cannot be seen within a

specific account then, the best likely course would be

to contact a support-specialist so that they can walk

through the details or explain the account-specific or

country-specific issue --

Thanks for your message. My business is retail and merchant is not available in New Zealand, so not possible to use dynamic remarketing (by google support)

first, you're welcome.

if the business is retail but the target-country is
not supported under the merchant-center then,
to use dynamic-remarketing, simply select other
as the business-type (not retail) and then,
submit the feed directly via the campaign --
not the merchant-center.

that is the point of using other, not retail --
even if the business is indeed retail.

a display-network-only campaign not a

shopping-campaign would be required.

 

however, if a person at google is indicating

that dynamic-remarketing is not possible for

a specific business-type, target-country, or

a specific account then, following google's

guidance is the best likely course.
