Hi there


This question is about adding a location with the API (or bulk using CSV upload).


The documentation refers to required fields, but I fail to find the list of required fields.


Which of the following fields are required when adding the location?


Google updates,Shop code,Business Name,Address line 1,Address line 2,Address line 3,Address line 4,Address line 5,Sub-locality,Locality,Administrative area,Country,Postcode,Primary phone,Additional phones,Website,Primary category,Additional categories,Sunday hours,Monday hours,Tuesday hours,Wednesday hours,Thursday hours,Friday hours,Saturday hours,Special hours,Profile photo,Logo photo,Cover photo,Other photos,Preferred photo,Labels,AdWords location extensions phone

OK, I've read that. So, the only way to know the required fields prior to
using the API, is trial and error with the cover upload... That is a pity.
