As of September, we are relaxing the restriction of certain coronavirus (COVID-19) related products on Shopping ads and free listings. Products like clothing, test kits and home goods, etc. that were previously disapproved due to the COVID-19-sensitive event are now eligible to serve on Shopping ads and free listings.

As a result of this change, at-home COVID-19 test kits are now permitted on Shopping ads and free listings. Only test kits that are authorised by the FDA or your local governing body will be allowed. We will accept test kits where the sample is collected and analysed at home or test kits where the sample is collected at home and then sent to a lab for analysis. All products must also adhere to the specific legal requirements of the countries where they are offered.
