In line with Google’s commitment to supporting the growth of businesses in Nigeria, the tech giant has launched Shopping ads on Google Search to enhance consumers’ experience of online transactions. Google Shopping ads will make it easier and quicker for online shoppers to find and purchase products.

Online shoppers will now be presented with a range of product alternatives, giving them the opportunity to make informed decisions, via Shopping ads. Consumers will be able to see more than just text ads as they search for products that they are interested in buying.

Shopping ads are now available in 94 countries and merchants can work with Comparison Shopping Services to advertise their products. One of the hardest challenges advertisers face when expanding internationally is preparing their Shopping ads for a new language. There is support available for advertisers to list in multiple languages and for those who sell and ship products to multiple countries, Google will automatically display product prices in the local currency.

The goal is to enable a thriving retail ecosystem and Google believes that success should be mutual through partnerships. To that end, Google continues to partner with advertisers of all sizes, providing them with the tools, technology and scale they need to thrive in today’s digital shopping world.
