About sale price annotations

Promote your products and attract attention to your ads by showcasing sales. When your ad shows with sales price annotations, your sales stand out and potential customers see how much they’ll save.

How it works

Submit the original price for your item using the required price attribute. When you lower the price of an item for a sale, you can submit the sale price using the optional sale_price attribute. Continue submitting the original price using the price attribute, even during the time of the sale.

How it shows

If the sale price and original base price meet certain conditions, both prices will show, and so will sale price annotations. The sale price will show as the current price alongside the original price, which will show with a strikethrough. Your ad will also show with a badge that highlights your sale. The specific colors used for annotations differ depending on where your ad appears.

Requirements 

In order for your ad to show with sale price annotations, you need to meet certain requirements:

  • The base price must have been charged for a period of at least 30 consecutive days in the past 180 days.
  • The base price must be valid.
  • The sale price must be lower than the base price.
  • The discount of the sale must be greater than 5% and less than 90%.

Note: Sales price annotations and merchant promotions allow merchants to highlight product sales in different ways. While sale price is an attribute that is submitted through the product feed, Merchant Promotions is a supplemental program that allows merchants to submit online promotions to feature with their product ads.
