Once you’ve created your round logo, banners, and favicon, you’ll need to upload them to your Merchant Center account. To upload your assets, go to the “Business information” section of your account, select Branding, then click the Color and logos for Shopping Actions drop down menu.

Note: Your branding assets must be approved by Google before they can appear on Shopping Actions. Because of this review period, there may be a short delay between when you upload and when you’ll see them live. When they’re approved, you’ll see a “live” symbol next to the asset in your account. You’re responsible for making sure that your branding assets do not infringe on the IP of others.
