Use Shopping remarketing lists

You can use Shopping remarketing lists to show Shopping ads to people who previously visited your website as they search for your products on Google. This article explains the steps to add remarketing lists to your Shopping campaigns.

Before you begin

If you're not familiar with remarketing, read About remarketing lists for Search ads which are similar to Shopping remarketing lists. Keep in mind that the rules that apply to Remarketing lists for Search ads also apply to remarketing lists for Shopping.

Using Shopping remarketing lists gives you the ability to segment your site visitors by previous site engagement. You can customize your Shopping bids for groups of users based on previous site engagements, such as “shopping cart-abandoners”, “loyal customers”, or “repeat visitors.“ If you're using Smart Bidding like Target ROAS, adding remarketing lists will help achieve even higher performance for individual audiences.
