Spotlight: Special Hours feature in Google My Business
On our site, publicreputation.com, paid users can match their Google My Business listing with their Public Reputation business listing. They are prompted to oauth and choose which GMB listing they want to match up with their PR listing.
Can anyone please confirm that Google would only present listings that have been verified? Or is it possible that Google would present GMB listings that have been claimed, but not yet verified?
We've had success with many accounts, but a handful of newly claimed pages are successfully able to "claim" their GMB listing via Google's oauth, however, we're not able to pass the information back to GMB to update the listing and the API returns an error message: This operation is not supported for unclaimed locations.
All assistance is much appreciated.

Hi @Erin B
No, this will display verified and unverified business listings.
What it will not display is business that have their addresses hidden via Service area settings.
