Retrieve any information using Google My Business API[ Edited ]
March 2017 - last edited March 2017 by Shalini S
I was comparing Google places API versus Google My Business API.
In my testing I retrieve information of businesses based con business name and zipcode, and I do that through this method in Google Places API.
The query is over businesses that don't belong to me, and in consequence I am not the admin.
And I want to do the same thing but with Google My business API?, give it a term/name and a zipcode, and get all businesses that match these 2 parameters.
I would like to do that because I see categories retrieve from google places API are different to categories from Google Business API, all this is part of my testing/comparing APIs
Thanks for the help
Re: Retrieve any information using Google My Business API
Hi @Carlos M,
The Google My Business API is a programming interface that allows developers to write applications to manage Google My Business account and location data. You can get a list of categories by using the categories.list endpoints in the Google My Business API. You can search the categories on the basis of name, regionCode and languageCode.
If you are planning to use the Google My Business API, please note that we are currently only targeting tech-savvy chains and third parties which manage Google My Business data for access to the API. Applicants must also meet minimum feature requirements and product guidelines. Please check out the Prerequisites page of our Google Developers site to learn more about requesting access to the API.
Please let us know if you have any other questions about the Google My Business API.
