Can You Drop Ship On Google Shopping

Can You Drop Ship On Google Shopping

This question has been asked many times, and there has been a lot of confusion. From my side, I said that drop shipping was not allowed in 2018, when Google explicitly mentioned drop shipping is not allowed. However, this was changed to the wording Promoting products that are not stocked.

As I am a Google Diamond Product Expert, I get access to extra help in pondering issues or questions. After a month of waiting, Google has come back with the below short answer.

As long as the advertisers have stocked the products and can deliver the goods to the customer, their items should not be disapproved.

Why Are So Many Dropshippers Suspended?

The most common reason why drop shippers get suspended is due to the lack of care, ie: not taking the time in setting up a trustworthy business.

Hello Emmanuel,

I’m reaching out to discuss our business address situation. Our official registered address is linked to our registered agent’s location, and we also hold a lease for a separate physical site, though we are not present there. This registered address is listed in our Google Merchant Center, but we’ve hesitated to include it on our website. We were advised that featuring an address that isn’t a physical location and isn’t verifiable on Google could lead to another suspension due to misrepresentation. Could you provide your thoughts on how we should handle this?

Additionally, I’ve noticed numerous merchants on Google shopping who opt not to list any address at all. This is quite common, and we’ve taken steps to ensure our legitimacy: our business is verified with Google, and we display our contact email, phone number, company name, registration number (EIN), and comply with all necessary policies.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
