Bing Shopping is a service for searching and discovering products. Customers can search for goods directly from Microsoft Bing. Additionally, products are promoted in the form of ads on other sites.
Products placed on Bing Shopping are displayed on Bing - the second largest search engine. It also supports some voice assistants, namely Amazon Alexa, Apple Siri, and Microsoft Cortana. Bing also serves Xbox owners.
Bing Shopping was launched in 2017, and the service went through a rebranding in 2019. It is now called Microsoft Shopping Ads.
The Bing Shopping service is largely identical to Google Shopping. So you can use a similar approach to product promotions. Generate a product feed to create a Bing catalog with your goods.
