Manage your notifications

A custom icon for Merchant Center Classic Article Header.

To help you keep things running smoothly and improve your presence on Google, you’ll occasionally find notifications in your Merchant Center account. You can review these at any time by clicking the bell icon Merchant Center Notifications bell iconfrom anywhere in Merchant Center.

Generally, notifications fall into these categories:

Alerts: Notifications that require merchants to fix something that’s currently broken (for example, feed issues). Alerts contain two sub-categories:

  • Merchant Center Notifications | Alert icon Alert
  • Merchant Center Notifications | Warning icon Warning

Suggestions: Optional actions that merchants could complete to improve their performance. Suggestions contain three sub-categories: 

  • Merchant Center Notifications | Tip icon Tip
  • Merchant Center Notifications | Pending icon Pending action
  • Merchant Center Notifications | Opportunities icon Opportunities

Announcements: Informative messages that merchants need to know about (for example, new product feature, policy update). Announcements contain two sub-categories:

  • Merchant Center Notifications | New feature icon New feature 
  • Merchant Center Notifications | Update icon Update

A notification will disappear once you’ve taken its suggested actions. You can also snooze or dismiss notifications without taking action on them by clicking the 3-dot icon in the top right corner of a notification, and then selecting Snooze or Dismiss. A snoozed notification will disappear from your notifications for 24 hours, while a dismissed one will be deleted permanently.
