Shopping Actions and Google Express
Yesterday, Surojit Chatterjee, Director of Product Management, Google Shopping published a blog post on Inside AdWords introducing Shopping Actions.
Zentail is a Google Partner and has a pre-built Shopping Actions integration with sellers already connected to Google Express.
What is Shopping Actions?
Shopping Actions is a Google-hosted pay-per-sale checkout flow. That means advertisers (merchants) can list products for sale and pay a set commission only if a sale occurs. This is a major change from the traditional Google AdWords model which is most commonly Pay-Per-Click where the checkout occurs on your own site.
Here's how the checkout flow looks on Google Express, Google's new online shopping mall:
Shopping Actions are not limited to Google Express. Anywhere customers encounter your product ad on Google, they will be able to purchase on this Google-hosted checkout flow on this pay-per-sale arrangement:
This includes the Google Assistant voice interface, which is an exciting new interface for independent retailers to access.
