One of the best things about selling on Google via Shopping Actions is the new marketplace-like sales path that sellers can take when using Google for Retail.

Right now with Google Shopping, sellers can take part in the traditional pay-per-click avenue to redirect traffic to their own site, and they can also opt into Shopping Actions to have Google sell products for them – only paying commission for completed sales. Best of all, unlike traditional marketplaces, sellers don't have to pay monthly fees for membership for Google Shopping Actions.

A new sales path sounds great, and it sounds even better with no monthly fees... but does that mean steep commission rates? Not quite!

In general, commission rates for products "Sold on Google" range from 5-15% with a mode average of 12%. In the table below, we've outlined the commission structure of Google Shopping Actions.
