Bing has made the process of creating Shopping Campaigns more easier than ever with the new Google Merchant Center (GMC) Import Tool.
“This tool is built to make it easier to create and maintain Bing Shopping Campaigns, so you can concentrate on optimizing your campaigns to connect to the people who matter to you through Bing Ads,” wrote Bing Ads team.
Using the GMC Import tool you can easily get your Product Ads running in Google AdWords onto Bing as the tool will help you:
- Save time by reducing the need to maintain two separate feeds for Bing Ads and Google AdWords.
- Import product offers more easily from GMC to Bing Merchant Center (BMC).
- Keep product offers fresher across both platforms through scheduled importing of the feeds in BMC.
To start importing of your AdWords ads—just head over to the Import tab in Bing Merchant Center (BMC), then sign in with your GMC account. The import tool supports both standard GMC accounts and multi-client accounts.
