Integrate Your Shopify Website

In order to create live Google Shopping and Search campaigns with Dynamic Creative, you need to create a link between your website and Dynamic Creative. This allows Dynamic Creative to update the availability and price of your ads automatically. At the end of this process, you will have:

  • Generated API access credentials to link your Shopify site with Ad Builder
  • Set up Ad Builder to extract product data from your website
  • Created a Product Feed for use with Dynamic Creative Ad Builder
