Google Shopping Key Policies – Your Product Data: Shipping

Google’s Policy:

“Google Shopping only allows the promotion of product listings and websites offering shipping to the areas or regions of the countries they are targeting.”

What It Means:
  • If you’re promoting your items in Google Shopping with a US target, you must offer shipping within the US.
  • Shoppers must be provided with complete and correct shipping costs – including applicable handling fees and insurance when applicable.
  • Only direct-shipping rates are allowed. Rates for other shipping methods (such as ship to store) are not allowed.
  • If you ship from outside of the target country (i.e. US target but ships from Canada), you must provide shipping information (country, region, service, price) for the target country.
  • If you ship from outside of the target country, you must prominently state that customs and/or customs-related fees are not included in the item price or shipping price. This must be displayed during the checkout process and before the order is completed.
