GMB listing with e-commerce website

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hey guys, 

I have a local shop for which I have created a GBM listing (https://plus.google.com/106267896198735803493). Now I'm working on an e-commerce site which will be launched soon and is called: www.thallodermashop.com. My question is do you think that is ok to place this e-commerce website on my GBM listing? The NAP that I have listed on the GBM listing and the website is the same but I'm hesitating whether to do it because it is a shop website?

Hi Mihaela

As per Google guidelines, "Listings on Google My Business can only be created for businesses that either have a physical location that customers can visit, or that travel to visit customers where they are. "

So an ecommerce website can't be added to the GMB listing.

I thought about that but since the e-commerce site basicaly represents the local store in terms of products and everything else. Just one more question if I create a separate Brand page with the same business name then can I palce the shop website?

Hi Mihaela

 

Sorry for the delay in replying - we've been having some problems with forum notifications and I did not realise you'd responded to me until today.

 

In answer to your question - yes, if you create a separate Brand page then you can link your ecommerce website to that Brand page.
