Store Codes - Bulk update

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello, 

 

I am trying to bulk update the store codes on my GMB account through the spreadsheet upload option but every time I upload the spreadsheet with the new codes new business are created. Instead I would like to replace the old codes with the new ones without creating new stores.. 

 

Do you know how can I solve this issue? 

 

Thanks

Hi @Greg H,


Unfortunately, because store codes are used as unique identifiers to ensure your updates are being made to the correct locations, you can only manually update store codes within Google My Business.

 

If you can still use the old store codes and just need additional identifiers added, another option would be to load the new store codes to the 'labels' field. Otherwise, they will have to be changed one by one.

 

Thanks!

Hi @KrystalT,

I assume that also means that if I have a bulk upload of 50 locations to add to my existing locations - they won't over write the old ones as long as I've put in 50 new identifiers? Yes?

Thanks
