Secure the Advantages of CSS
As an advertiser, you should know: With the introduction of Google Shopping Europe (GSE), the structure of your bids for Google Shopping Ads has changed, which will be placed in the auction for an ad rank. In order to prove to EU that GSE is a profitable company, Google will deduct ~ 20% of the bids as a margin.
If you, on the other hand, promote your products through another CSS like Adference CSS, this margin will be excluded. Your bids will enter the auction in full amount.
Your advantage: With a lower bid, you outbid an advertiser that still places their ads via GSE.
Who should use CSS?
CSS concerns every advertiser, who runs ads on Google Shopping. Therefore, every merchant should thoroughly consider the benefits with a Google CSS Partner:
Merchants can only control their shopping ads using CSS and the related, better ROIs in Google Shopping with a cost saving up to 20%- by working with a certified Google price comparison – a so-called Google CSS Partner like Adference.
After integration to CSS, the changes for the merchant are very limited: The campaigns are managed via Google Ads Interface like it used to be.
What is a Google CSS Partner?
A Google CSS Partner is a certified price comparison service by Google known as CSS, which meets a certain requirements to run Google Shopping Ads for merchants.
CSS stands for Comparison Shopping Services: In Europe, Google Shopping Ads on the main search results page are displayed as the price comparison ads for a while.
Why? Google relaunched the advertising platform Google Shopping under the name Google Shopping Europe (GSE) after European Commission imposed a huge fine for Google in 2017 because of unfair treatment against the price comparison websites. The restructuring of all platform created equal opportunities for all the parties involved.
