Managing shops in shops[ Edited ]
September 2016 - last edited September 2016 by Terry W
Dear Google team member,
I am using Google My Business to write an application for one of our customers. The application takes data coming from their own systems, transforms it to Google My Business Location instances, and uses these to manage Google My Business.
My problem is that some of their shops are located in other shops. When you look in Google Maps, you see for example:
Amsterdam Zuid Station, Spoorslag 13, 1082 MM, Amsterdam
Located in: Amsterdam Zuid Station
Is this "Located in" field manageable through the Google My Business API, or does Google fill it for us? What possibilities do we have to control the "located in" information that is shown?
With kind regards,

Hi @Martijn D
Hopefully an API Googler see's this and jumps in. However even for regular businesses they cannot select this or annotate for this. They have to contact business support who can do this.
So if business support has to do this for a regular business, I'm guessing that once your listings are live and verified, you create a list and send it to bulk location support.

Hi @Martijn D,
I checked in our internal system that the “Located in” field on Maps is not a part of any fields of the Address object for a location, is therefore not manageable via the Google My Business API.
You can fix and report incorrect business information on Google if you find any data discrepancies between your business listings and the business information on Google. You can also post your questions on the Basics for Business Owners board for more help in fixing business information discrepancies on Google.
