The Google Shopping ads Channel extension installs and adds Google Shopping features to Magento. To review additional information, see the Google Shopping ads Channel Marketplace page.

Requirements

  • Magento Instance: Google Shopping ads Channel is compatible with instances on Magento Open Source and Magento Commerce versions 2.2.4+ and 2.3.x. The extension is not compatible with Magento 2.1 or Magento 1.
  • Magento Web Account: You should have a Magento web account, which is used to create and track an API key.
  • API Key: Get a Google Shopping ads API key through your Magento web account. See Add an API Key.
  • Google accounts: During onboarding, you will create and configure any required Google accounts and settings. Consider using email accounts for your business as the account will be the primary owner (admin) of the Google, Google Merchant Center, and Google Ads accounts you set in this integration.

    • Google account: We recommend using a Google account for your business or company, not a personal Google account.

    • Google Merchant Center account: You will create these accounts during onboarding. You cannot use an existing GMC account. If you have store URLs claimed and verified by an existing GMC account, you will need to unclaim.
