I'm having issues connecting merchant center accounts to the Google & Youtube app in Shopify. I've already created the merchant center connected to my gmail account, verifying the business and everything. When I go into Shopify and try to connect it to the Google app, it only gives me the option to create a new one. The new one has a different ID. Is the only way to create a merchant center that is connected to the Google App is to create it through Shopify? Or is there a way to connect a merchant center that has already been made outside of the app, and if so, how do I get it connected?

There is an option to connect to an existing Google Account.

I recommend closing down the second account it created, disconnect in the app.

Then try again and connect in the app.

 

Alternatively you can use a more advanced data feed tool such as: https://apps.shopify.com/multiple-google-shopping-feeds
