Set campaign priority


Campaign priority determines the preferred bid for the same product across multiple Shopping campaigns in the same country.

Campaign priorities don't affect your search relevance or influence the likelihood of your product to show on Google Shopping. They give you more control over which products and bids are most important.

For more detail on using priorities see the Shopping Best Practices guide.
