Unlike Google’s Strictly Paid Model, Bing Opts For Paid And Free Shopping Formats

Today Bing announced that it will be sunsetting Bing Shopping, the separate product destination that relies on merchant product feeds in Bing Merchant Center. Instead, the company is rolling out Bing Product Search in the next few months.

Unlike Google, however, Product Search results will include a mix of paid and free formats with Product Ads and a newly introduced feature called Rich Captions.
