Reach more shoppers with a Performance Max campaign
Performance Max campaigns feature paid ads that help you reach more shoppers across Google properties, including YouTube, Gmail, Search, and the Google Display Network. Built for ecommerce, your ads are automatically created based on products synced to your Google Merchant Center, so you don’t need to design ads.
Google’s machine learning uses your product feed to create and show a variety of ads designed to reach the right shoppers at the right time. Your ads are continually optimized as the algorithm tests different combinations of the image and text assets you provide, then shows the most relevant ads, automatically.
Why use Performance Max?
- Your best-performing ads are shown more often.
- Automatic bidding takes the guesswork out of keyword strategy.
- Seamless integration with third-party ecommerce platforms simplifies the lift.
To set up a Performance Max campaign, simply sync your products through Google Listings & Ads and set a daily budget. Google takes care of the rest, using a variety of real-time signals to optimize your campaign and choose the best time and place to display your products.
- Performance Max campaigns use cost-per-click pricing, which means you only pay when customers click on your ad.

Promote coupons and offers in your product ads. When you add promotions to products that you include in Performance Max campaigns, your shoppers see a “special offer” link (for example: get 15% off, free shipping, etc.). Including special offers and promos in your ads can help improve your click and conversion rate.

Can I run both free listings and Performance Max Campaigns at the same time?
Yes, you can run both at the same time, and we recommend it! In the US, advertisers running free listings and ads together have seen an average of over 50% increase in clicks and over 100% increase in impressions on both free listings and ads on the Shopping tab. Your store is automatically opted into free listings automatically and you can choose to run a paid Performance Max Campaign.

How is my ads budget split between the different countries?
Google’s smart technology helps identify the best performing targeted countries, so your ads can reach the right shoppers at the right time.
Which countries can I target?
You can only select the countries that you’re targeting on Google Merchant Center. Your target countries must be eligible for both Google Merchant Center and Google Ads.
