What is Google Shopping?
You can create a Google feed to get your products listed for free on Google shopping. Google shopping is a free online platform that links customers with merchants. Google shopping is part of Google search engine so when you type a keyword in Google search engine you will be shown product suggestions related to your search. For example, if you search for a bike on Google, you will be shown bikes as part of Google Shopping.
Any merchant could (and in my opinion should) get their products on Google Shopping. It is a free platform after all and many businesses use it as their main selling channel as it connects buyers with sellers.
