Price drop annotations make it easier for consumers to understand when your products drop in price. When consumers find your products on Google, they see a “Price drop” badge.

How it works

If you change the price of your product to be lower than the average price that you listed in the past, Google can show the “Price drop” badge for this product. “Price drop” badges are designed to show only when there has been a significant drop to what has been a fairly stable price for a product.

How it shows

The new price appears as the current price alongside the original price. The original price provides a reference for consumers so that they can see the difference between the original price and the new prices (for example, if the original price was $749 USD, it appears as “Was $749” in the listing).

Your product also shows a “Price drop” badge. The specific colors used for annotations differ depending on where your product appears.

Note: Sale price annotations and price drop annotations are different and have separate requirements.
