shopping tickets

Hi

 

Does any of you if, or under what circumstances, it is possible to advertise tickets and voucers with Google Shopping?

I know there is a time sensitivity rule, https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/2770254?hl=en-GB, but what if the ticket or voucher is valid for a very long time? (like year)

 

/ David

Yup,
tickets have limited lifetime, therefore prohibited

Hi David,
I haven't seen any long term events being able to be advertised. Google explicitly says "events" as not eligible so I take that to mean any kind of event, not matter what the timeline. I can't imagine there's a workaround for it though, at least not one without risk.

Others might have additional feedback or input here.

Thanks Dave

this is not really an ordinary event, it´s more like a ticket for a museum, valid for a year and to be used any time during that year.
I´ll ask a rep, let´s see what they say and I´ll get back to you

Hi David,
That's a perfect example actually. I've seen "experience" packs advertised in shopping before. You know the gifts of a day cooking in a chef school or a day learning to fly a plane. I'd imagine they fall into the same category. I'm not sure of they're still permissible but it sounds like it's possible, although work-aroundish.

Would be good if you could let me know what you hear back if you don't mind? I'd be interested to hear how this pans out.

Hi David - did you ever get an answer from your rep? I would be interested in understanding this policy too.

Many thanks! Phil
