Hello,

 

we've followed your guidelines and filled the form for API access application. However we got denied access.

 

The response Mail reads:

"We are currently only granting API access to large brand companies or companies working with clients to manage their business location data."

 

We are planning to take on the latter and provide an application for customers to access their My Business Insight data.

 

The response states that we do not currently meet your requirements, but doesn't go into any specifics.

Please provide details on what we need to do to get approval.

 

Best Regards.

Did you come up with an alternative solution?   My clients were denied as well & I am left without a solution.  All we are trying to do is read their location data from their My Business account & use it to display an interactive Google map. None of the Maps search functions are really appropriate for this.

Hi @Lauren G,

 

We suggest you use the Google Places API instead to retrieve read-only comprehensive information about the indicated place such as its complete address, phone number, user rating and reviews.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions!

 

Thanks,

Shalini, Google My Business API team
