Is Etsy going to pay for us to be listed in the new Google Shopping?

Cindy do you think google would consider sub categories under the google shopping results? Something like

New
Used
Handmade
Vintage
Supplies

If they did something like this I could see it being used a great deal more. They could also lighten the restrictions on the attributes as well.
probably not all of those, they have put vintage under used, I believe. But who knows?
right that makes sense.
Cindy, Thank You for your Response (on Page 22). And for all of your help to everyone. I hope you feel better very soon :)
thanks, I am feeling more normal for me today. I just can't be on the computer all the time, & sometimes when I lay down I can't use the laptop.
Thanks cindy for going into this further.....this article also discusses it broadly and might help understand the issue further

Looks like it's going to begin in the fall....just in time for holiday shopping...

some updates:

certain companies are really happy about the change b/c they can pay for better ranking through bidding:

this would obviously be problematic for smaller businesses that simply do not have the same advertising budget as Vista Print & other competitors

pointing out that managing a feed is not a skill some merchants have needed previously (& this is true for those of us selling on venues, if those venues do not partner with the new Google Shopping & let their sellers register privately)
