Free listings allow customers to see products from your store across Google.
Before you begin
Learn about showing your products for free on Google so that you’re familiar with the requirements and various options. For example, enhanced listings on the Shopping tab require more product data submitted via Merchant Center feeds and require you to comply with both policies for free listings and Shopping ads.
The Shopping tab (shopping.google.com)
Your enhanced listings can appear for free on the Shopping tab, offering visual experiences for customers who are searching for products like yours. Customers are directed to your online site to complete the purchase flow.
