After you have installed the PrestaShop Ads module and created your PrestaShop Ads account, you must connect Google Ads and Google Merchant Center to PrestaShop Ads. Connecting Google Ads / Merchant Center will complete the signup process and you will be ready to advertise on Google Shopping!
If you do not use Google Ads and Merchant Center accounts yet, you can let your PrestaShop Ads accounts create them for you. The accounts you create through PrestaShop Ads will automatically be connected to PrestaShop Ads.
NOTE: If you choose to let PrestaShop Ads create a Google Ads account on your behalf, watch your E-Mail inbox!
Google will send you an invitation to claim the new Google Ads account created for you. This E-Mail will be sent to your Google E-Mail account. It contains a link, just click the link to log in to the Google Ads account.
After logging in to the Google Ads account, follow on-screen-instructions to setup payment information for your Google Ad Spend. If you do not setup payment information, your campaigns will not start to deliver ads!
