Your product or service

Hello

I would like to create an shopping campaign for telephone system maintenance for a fixed monthly price with specific configuration having varying prices. Yearly contracts. Something like these guys are doing

link

Just wanted to triple check it wouldn't violate any of google shopping's policies before making the pages, have checked the policies but couldn't find anything. If someone could help me out and confirm that this type of shopping feed should get approved, i would be very grateful.

Regards

Hi Lukasz,

Unfortunately you would be unable to advertise in Google Shopping based on your description of the service you would like to advertise. Google Shopping is for products, not services.like maintenance, however this is a request that I've seen before.

Refer to the "Services" section: https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/6150006?hl=en\

Hope this helps,

Jim

Hi Jim,
Thank you very much for the reply, appreciate this. I have looked at what sort of Unsupported Shopping content is, would you be able to guesstimate if this may change anytime soon?
Further to that, there have also been few other products we were thinking to advertise via. google shopping, but still uncertain if this is something we can actually do.
Phone system leasing: - leasing of a phone system for a set monthly fee. Client gets the products and pays a monthly fee for it, much like mobiles and tablets.
Video conferencing - same thing, a service with a monthly fee, where the client gets kit in the package.

Could you please advise if any of those would qualify?

Thanks
Lukasz

Hi Lukasz,

Google is frequently evolving their products like Google Shopping so I could see services being supported at some time in the future, although not likely soon.

Unfortunately you aren't able to advertise leased products in Google Shopping as they are classified as "Recurring Billing" and thus unsupported.

Hi Jim,
Thanks again for the reply. it's a shame that we can't advertise these in google shopping. Any chance you would know where would be the best place to look for google shopping updates, or how to be notified if anything like services from the posts above would became available for google shopping?

 

PS: would you know what category would this fall into?  Would this not be a service with monthly fee as well?

Regards
Lukasz
