What is Google's "See What's in Store" (SWIS)?
SWIS displays your in-store products on your Google Business Profile. Your Business Profile already shows useful store information like opening hours and contact details, so SWIS gives shoppers another way to find your products/store.
See an example of SWIS below, on desktop and mobile:
When a shopper clicks on a product on the Business Profile, they're taken to an automatically created page where they can see more product info or get directions on Google Maps to come to your store to buy the product. Products on SWIS also have stock status labels: 'in stock' and 'limited stock' to help shoppers make a purchasing decision.
Where can SWIS surface?
Shoppers can see SWIS on the Business Profile on Search and Maps.
How do I set up SWIS?
