It has already become customary to make Internet purchases in the Yandex Market. You can find out all the characteristics of the goods, store hours, buy goods online, choose the type of delivery.
For most retailers, placement of products in the Yandex Market is mandatory if they want to sell more. In fact, this can replace the promotion of the online store on Yandex Direct.

The more the company is represented on the network, the more it has the reach of the target audience. In the case of trading platforms, many companies make a big omission inattentively relating to another site - Google Merchant Center (GMC).
The audience finds the products they need at the following address: https://www.google.com/shopping - Google's purchase service.
What is the difference between Yandex Market and Google Merchant Center?
Both systems, Yandex Market and Google Merchant Center, create advertising sales ads for themselves and all related services based on the feed you uploaded - the list of products in YML format.
