This article provides answers to common questions about promotion eligibility.For how long can a promotion run?
Per Google's promotions policies, the maximum duration is 6 months (183 days)per promotion.
Each Merchant Center account can have up to 500 open promotions (unexpired and not stopped by retailer) at any given time; additional live promotions will be disapproved.
As long as an online promotion follows promotions policies, it can be one of many different types, such as free gifts, certain dollar amounts or percentages off, or gift cards for future purchases at your store. Promotion types are listed in our participation criteria and policies.
A promotions feed can only correspond to product feeds from one Target Country, which you select when you register your feed. For your promotions to display for other countries, submit a new promotions feed that targets those countries.
A code is needed to promote free or discounted shipping in order to make sure that shoppers receive added value in the form of a discount on your normal shipping price.
For example, if you submit an item in Merchant Center that had a shipping cost of $0.00, this product will already display as having “Free Shipping.” As a result, a free shipping promotion wouldn’t provide additional value since that product already has free shipping.
Why is my promotion rejected when the discount is shown on the product landing page?
The price listed in the ad or free product listing must match the price listed on the product landing page. Discounts and promotions can only be applied at checkout or point of sale. You can refer to our promotions policies for more information.
