The Google Promotion Setting and how you can use it

In case you have already added a Product into your design and selected to Use it for Gmail Promotions Tab, the description will be auto-filled in with the product's title but feel free to change it if you wish to.

Keep in mind that enabling this setting doesn't necessarily mean that your annotation will always appear in the Gmail Promotion tab since Gmail is using a complicated algorithm to show annotations.
