What if I change the name and domain of my store?
Do I have to disconnect the GMC before making the changes so the account will not get in trouble?
Do I have to create a new GMC after changing the name and domain of the store?

Thank you for your helpful content

Hi David,

If you already have an account and want to change the name and domain of the store, all you need to do is unverify and unclaim the old domain and then replace it with the new domain name. To change the store name, you need to edit the “Business display name” in the Bussiness information settings of the Merchant Center account.

If the account is suspended, then we advise against cancelling the account and creating a new one. If Google notices that you created a new account while having a suspended one, the new account will get blacklisted too.

But, in the case of creating a new account while having a suspended one, you need to do it with different contact information, domain, store, etc; nothing can be linked to the old account.

Hi Nguyen,

Yes, you should have linked the two so you can access Google Ads campaign data in your Google Merchant Centre account, section 2.6 shows you how to do this.
