Creating a Google Ads Account

Step 3 of 3 for Google Shopping ads Channel onboarding.

With your Google Merchant Center (GMC) created and products in-progress for approval, create a Google Ads account and complete your first Google Ads Smart Shopping campaign.

Wait, I have a Google Ads account!

Sorry, but the Google Shopping ads Channel implementation cannot support using an existing account. You must create a new Google Ads account.

When creating your account, you will do the following:

  • Steps

    What Happens

    Google Ads Terms of Service

    Review and accept the Terms of Service and Prohibited Content policies.

    Account Settings

    Configure your Google Ads account settings, activate your account, add a payment method, and update account settings.

    Important:Once you specify a currency and create your account, you cannot change the currency. You must also add a payment method and billing settings in the same currency.

    Creating Campaigns

    Optional. Create your first campaign as the last step of onboarding, or tap skip to create a campaign later. If you skip creating a campaign, you should still add an Ads payment method and update settings.

You should start in the process after creating your GMC account. If not, tap Create Ad Campaign.
