What is Google Merchant Promotions?
The program allows retailers to distribute online promotions with Shopping ads on Google.com by displaying a Special offer link.
What better way than displaying discounts to attract customers? This link will for sure attract shoppers' attention and can highly encourage them to buy from your shop.
If they are interested, shoppers can click on the Special Offer link. A popup will display the details of the offer as well as a direct link to the store.
Visit Google's documentation for more details about the Merchant Promotions program.

If you haven't sent your products to Google Shopping yet, you can check our full documentation.
Step 1 - Fill out the interest form
Before being able to create a promotions' feed, users must fill out the Merchant Promotions interest form.
The Google team will take 1-2 weeks to review any participation requests.
Check Google's Program Policies and Editorial Guidelines.
Step 2 - Select your cart price rules
When the extension is installed, merchants select the cart price rules they want to add to Google Shopping from their Magento back-office. See how to configure the cart price rules.
Step 3 - Add the promotion attribute to your data feed
After that, they simply add the promotion_id attribute to their product data feed. This allows Google to link the products to the promotions.
Check how to configure the data feed.
Step 4 - Generate and upload your promotions feed
Finally, users generate both data feeds for the products and the promotions from their Magento back-office and upload these feeds to their Google Merchant Center account.
See how to upload your promotions feed to Google Merchant.
Google may take a couple of days to review your items and promotions and check details against current shopping-ad rules and policies.
Once the data feed has been reviewed by Google, you’ll be able to download a report to check the errors and warnings that could prevent your products and promotions from being displayed on Google Shopping.
