Setting Up an Account

Once you create an account, please tell us general information about your business from the Settings page under General. Please provide the following information in your General settings:

Website Information

If you want to add a Website URL, your URL must begin with http:// (or https://) and include your full domain name. You will have to verify and claim your website URL in your Google Merchant Center account settings. Any links that you include in your feed must match the domain you've registered.

For example, to submit a file containing this URL: http://www.example.com/item1.html you would need to register this site: http://www.example.com/

If you have more than one domain for which to submit items, you'll need to set up a Multi-Client Account.
