Hi guys, just want to double confirm that if the API offers writing review programmatically. I went the API guide and it looks like there is no such API to write review.

Hi @Hoan D,

 

The Google My Business API doesn’t currently support creating review. You can just update a reply to the specified review (or creates a new reply if one doesn't exist).

 

We’ll announce new features of the Google My Business API when they become available on both this board and the Google Developers site. Please stay tuned for updates!

 

Thanks,

Shalini

Hi.  Did this ever get implemented?

Hi @Scott B,

 

No, the Google My Business API doesn’t currently allow to create the reviews. You can just update a reply to the specified review (or creates a new reply if one doesn't exist).

 

Thanks,

Hi Shalini,

 

How do companies like this (https://www.repflux.com/) offer this type of service? It says their system collects the review and then posts to Google.

 

Thanks,

Brady

Hi @Shalini S,

 

Me too. I wonder how Podium offer this service. Not actually via API, but they can use the Google review widget, but this is not documented anywhere.

 

Thanks,

Hi @Vu Phuong & @Brady M,

 

Unfortunately, we don’t know the business model of the companies you mentioned here.

 

But the Google My Business API doesn’t allow to create reviews. You can just update a reply to the specified review (or creates a new reply if one doesn't exist).

 

Thanks,
