Last Updated: Jan 27, 2012 04:42PM WET
1. There are two processes involved in verifying your store in google merchant center:
  •   Verifying the store by copying and pasting the Meta Tag code, uploading a file etc (in webmaster tools).
  •   Claiming the store (in Google Merchant account center)
2.  Login into the Webmaster Tools account with google merchant center login details by going to http://www.google.com/webmasters




3. After you login, click on Add Site button





4. There will be a pop up window where you will enter your site (store) url like http://retailtower.com. If possible please don’t add the www to your store url so that all sub-domains like store.retailtower.com will have the verification code.

7. Click on the link in "arrow 2" to confirm the upload.
