How to add another website to Google Merchant Center

How to add another website to Google Merchant Center

In Google Merchant Center, you are not restricted to only one website. If you are a merchant or an individual that owns several different websites, such as targeting different countries you can request a multi-client account.

Having a multi-account will allow you to add multiple domains using sub-accounts and have distinct merchant names for each added domain.

The only requirements are:

  1. You already have an existing Google Merchant Center account
  2. You have already verified one domain with no suspensions

What is a multi-account good for?

If you own one business with multiple countries’ TLD’s (top level domain ie: .com. .fr. .uk), then targeting each Google Shopping country requires you to register these TLD’s to a new account. Instead of creating multiple Google accounts with a new email address, you can use one account (multi-account) to register all the websites.

If you are a marketplace owner, you can then register an account for each of your marketplace resellers.

If your business has multiple brands.

Agencies can also benefit from a multi-account when managing client accounts

First Step, How To Request a Multi Client Account

Step 1: Go to Wrench Icon > Account Settings

Step 2: Click on the tab Advanced Account Setup > Request Conversion

Note: This option is only available to account admins. If your account is already an advanced account, or is a sub-account in an advanced account, you won’t be able to request conversion.

Step 3: Choose your options. In most cases for retailers choose Merchant > International Retailers

Final Step: Google will send an email once this process is complete. Or check the status of your request by visiting the “Account settings” page.

Second Step, Add a Sub Account for your additional website

Once your account is converted to a Multi Client Account, go to Accounts > Click on the blue plus icon

Add your:

  1. website store name
  2. website URL
  3. click on save

Does this only work with TLDs or can you use subdomains here?

Hi Emmanuel, I have a store in the USA that sells electronics both drop shipped and direct from our shop. I want to sell in Australia where I have a physical address but will be drop shipping all products. My current merchant center account only allows for my USA website. Would it be appropriate to request a MCA account or will I risk a ban? Thanks.

Hello, first off great article, it was very helpful but I want to confirm a few things before attempting the conversion.
I own 2 online t-shirt stores but am only using one of them for google merchant and google ads. I want to add the second one but they have similar content (both t-shirt stores) as well as same payment method, contact number etc., Will any of these be a problem? Should I get an additional phone number?

Hello,

I have an google merchant center linked with my store and I have another website in other niche. I want to add the second website into the same merchant center (MCA). The website has the different URL and different contact number. But the problem is the business address for both website is same. Can I just add the two website to same GMC or should I create a new GMC for another website?

Thanks in Advance.

I am not sure if I missed something, but I did not find how to create a multi-account either. This article does not seem very complete.

Hi Emmanuel,
I have an MCC/MCA for the merchant center. 1 of the clients in there wants to set up a new store (complete different product) on a different domain/URL. Is there a way for him to have both websites/stores in to 1 MerchantCenter Dashboard ? As I understand a store can’t be in two different MCAs ? What would you advice ?

Hello Rob, good question. The only way for the client to have two sites with one dashboard is for the client to create a MCA. However as you already have one registered as a sub account. The client will not be able to this. My recommendation is to always have the client own the accounts. Never the agency or data feed manager. This causes potential issues such as higher chance of multiple account suspensions due to all being linked to 1 MCA. Also having multiple similar niches in 1 MCA can cause suspensions. I have more then 200 linked accounts, I own zero accounts. My clients own them and I am simply linked as an admin or standard user. This would be my advise to you, to keep a lower risk factor.
