GMB API Prerequisites[ Edited ]
May 2016 - last edited May 2016 by Terry W
In this post of last year, the prerequisites for use Google My Business API were: "use the AdWords API and manage more than 50 business locations".
But I read other news saying it was going public soon, so "everyone" could use it.
Do you guys know if anyone can implement the API now?
I take care of 100 local business accounts and it´s really hard to manage all the emails logins etc. Do you know any dashboard centralized solution i could use?

Hi @Yuri C,
Since the blog post you mentioned, we’ve broadened access to the Google My Business API. The API is designed for tech-savvy developers who are building applications to manage business location data. Typical users of the API are large businesses and third party agencies.
For a centralized dashboard solution, we recommend using business accounts to share access to a large set of locations with a group of people within a single Google Account. Please check out the best practices for using Business Accounts with Google My Business locations in the FAQ. However, please note the 100-page limit per Google Account when using business accounts. If you manage ten or more locations of the same chain, you may request bulk verification, which will remove the 100-page limit for that account.
