Helping businesses stimulate economic recovery
Merchants can notably boost their business activity using Google tools, studies, and training opportunities that enable them to adapt more quickly to today’s new context. Starting in mid-October, we made it free for all merchants to display their product information on the Google search engine’s Shopping tab.
During September, we offered a series of training courses and appointments in France called “Let’s boost business together”, working hand-in-hand with 7,500 merchants across Europe.
With Christmas shopping right around the corner, buyers can discover more products offered by a large number of merchants. To help trusted companies reach their local customers, we announced the launch of Local Services ads in 10 countries, including France.
