How to Set Up Your Chip Account for Google Shopping header image

Before registering a Google Ads account, make sure that your Chip store is set up and complies with Google’s requirements. Doing so not only ensures that your Google Shopping efforts will run smoothly but it also helps reduce the chance of your account getting suspended.

Go through our checklist to make sure your Chip account is ready for Google Shopping!

Product categories

  • All collections, storefronts, and the navigation menu on your domain should have campaigns. Ensure none of these are empty.
  • Categorize campaigns clearly on the navigation menu and in collections (i.e. Hobbies, Jobs, Animals, etc.)
  • Use a consistent font, capitalization, and punctuation.  
  • Check all spelling and grammar to avoid errors.

Campaign titles and details

  • Make sure there are no IP or trademark infringements on your campaign details and artwork. This is a crucial step. 
  • Do not misuse capitalization on campaign titles, product descriptions, or ads. This will cause ads to be disapproved or your account suspended.
  • Do not use the following terminology or labels: “100% satisfaction guarantee” or any guarantees, “limited edition,” or “best-seller.”
  • Do not use stock keeping units (SKU) or model numbers.
  • Do not post fake reviews or ratings.
  • All campaigns must have added tags.
  • Check that hyperlinks are working correctly.
  • Optimize the important SEO keywords in your campaign title as it relates to your niches, products, or trends you’re following. You’re allowed a maximum of 150 characters for the campaign titles. Learn more about SEO here.
  • Any guarantees of safe and secure checkouts or payment methods on campaigns must be removed. Payment gateway logos should only be shown at the footer of every page.


Clear details and information must be provided for a​ll promotions and discounts:

  • Applicable time frame: Specific start and end dates
  • Conditions: Eligible products, promo/discount qualification, etc.
  • Promo/discount reason, i.e. Christmas, Summer Flash Sale, etc. 

Ensure that your promo/discount code and free shipping offer work correctly at all times.
