“Being contacted by smec, I was curious right away. I’ve been in online marketing for 15+ years and have built many campaigns. I was actually thinking “there has to be someone who can do this automatically”. So I jumped at the opportunity and have never looked back.”
We at Smarter Ecommerce have been focusing on ecommerce for 14 years. To solve your specific challenges we share our expertise with you.
Fast and reliable campaign setup, award-winning bidding technology, agile feature development and an expert team driven by our values.
Innovative bidding technology and expert account management to maximise the profitability of your Shopping campaigns
We combine intuitive technology with elaborate onboarding and proactive support to help you achieve and maintain market leadership.
In combination with our holistic Shopping offering we enable you to explore the true potential of your clients through valuable insights.
As retail growth partner, we cover all areas of ecommerce. We optimise your prices, campaigns and strategies for maximum performance.
smec offers two different solutions, depending on your needs. You can fully automate your Shopping campaigns with Whoop! and get expert services on top, or you can choose a self-service approach. While offering the highest level of autonomy, the self-service offer requires you to manage your Google Ads and merchant center accounts independently. You can, however, always book extra service hours with our ecommerce experts.
Overall, your Shopping campaigns will still be controlled via your Google ads and Merchant Center account. If you choose smec’s in-house bidding solution, you will have access to advanced bid management options via an additional user interface directly in Whoop!. Self-service clients manage their campaigns directly within Google Ads. The only change you will spott is the CSS association or flag on the top right corner of your merchant center dashboard.
smec Shopping is not a traditional price comparison platform. As a CSS partner, we are exclusively focused on helping our clients run Shopping ads effectively and efficiently. We also do not partner with affiliate networks and do not publish feeds from sources other than the Merchant Center.
There are various CSS providers on the market and they differ in quite a lot of aspects, from the number of countries where they are eligible to run Shopping ads to the pricing and quality of their comparison site. One of the most prominent CSS is Google’s own CSS, namely Google Shopping, which also happens to be the default CSS in most cases. With smec Shopping, Smarter Ecommerce operates one of the largest third-party CSS networks with more than 1,200 accounts. Unlike Google’s default CSS, we offer you bid discounts of up to 20%, free traffic from our price comparison platform, transparent pricing, and a quick and easy setup process.
Depending on the contractual terms and cancelation policy, different scenarios apply. smec offers you the greatest flexibility and a simple cancelation process. Our account managers will reliably guide you through the process. Depending on your preferences, we will need either your consent to switch to another CSS or work with your new CSS partner.
We will assess your unique needs and account potentials to find the best possible solution for your business. Our approach is to leverage the balance of machine and human brainpower in order to maximise KPI-driven results while minimising tedious and iterative taskwork.
