CSS 'By Comlyn'...

What is CSS?

A Comparison Shopping Service (CSS) is a website that collects product offers from online retailers and then sends users to the retailers’ websites to make a purchase. Merchants need to work with at least one CSS to begin placing Shopping Ads. Google recommend using multiple CSS partners, to test the performance.

The CSS Partner program helps Comparison Shopping Services (CSSs) and merchants to connect more effectively with shoppers through Shopping Ads. After completing an in-depth training, Comlyn are can help to maximise the potential of Shopping Ads, making access to Shopping ads seamless for merchants.

Your benefits - The CSS Incentive Program

Google's CSS Partner program are currently* offering SpendMatch discounts to merchants using CSS Partners:

New Merchant SpendMatch

New merchant domains onboarding with a given CSS get full spend match for spend on Shopping ads for 30 days up to €500 as long as the CSS spends more than €10 in those 30 days for that merchant, the SpendMatch starts with the 11th Euro spent.

Existing Merchant SpendMatch

For all existing merchants, Google will provide ad credits after each 30 day period. The amount of ad credits will be based on a percentage of a partner CSS's spend on Shopping ads for a given merchant during that 30 day period:

  • Any merchant with spend in a 30 day period between €500 - €2,500 gets 20% of the spend credited to that merchant's account
  • Any merchant with spend in a 30 day period between €2,500 - €10,000 gets 25%
  • Any merchant with spend in a 30 day period above €10,000 gets 30%, capped at €32,000 credit per 30 days

Note: If a New Merchant would receive a greater ad credit if it were considered to be an Existing Merchant, Google will apply whichever classification is most beneficial for that merchant.

*These programs may change at any time at Google's sole discretion
