After you have installed the emarketing app for Shopify app and created your emarketing account, you must connect Google Ads and Google Merchant Center to emarketing. Connecting Google Ads / Merchant Center will complete the signup process and you will be ready to advertise on Google Shopping!
NOTE: Even if you want to advertise on Facebook / Instagram only, a connection to Google Ads and Merchant Center is required, as Google Merchant Center will be used as central product data base. That doesn't mean you have to advertise on Google!
If you do not use Google Ads and Merchant Center accounts yet, you can let emarketing create them for you. The Google accounts you create will automatically be connected to emarketing.
NOTE: If you have created a Google Ads account through emarketing, check your Google account 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!
