Microsoft has opened a partnership with Shopify that will integrate with Microsoft Bing, Microsoft Edge, and Microsoft Start. Specifically, the collaboration will add product listings from 1.7 million Shopify sellers to Microsoft’s services.
In Microsoft Bing and Microsoft Edge, the new integration can be found in the Shopping tab. Here users can find listed Shopify products quickly. When a merchant adds a product, it will automatically be included on the Shopping tab for Bing and Microsoft Start for free.
Microsoft and Shopify explain how the integration works in the announcement blog:
- “Using the improved Microsoft Channel app, merchants can easily connect with shoppers across the Microsoft network.
- Shopify merchants’ products will also automatically show on the Shopping tab on Microsoft Bing and the Microsoft Start Shopping tab for free as product listings.
- Shopify merchants will also find value in creating new ad campaigns and viewing marketing performance through real-time reports in their Shopify store.”
