Role of Postal Code in creating a new GMB API location[ Edited ]
August 2016 - last edited August 2016 by Terry W
I would like to know whether postal code is mandatory in creating the GMB Location.
When I pass the entire address and latlng values expect the Postal Code, it does not allow me in creating a new location.
Few countries doe not have postal codes (say Qatar). How can I create a location for it if at all Postal Code is mandatory.
Thanks and Regards,

Hi @anumula b,
Address formats can vary widely by country, so all fields including the postal code of the business may not be required for every location. Depending on the country, some fields will be required, optional, or not allowed. Address line 1 and country are always required.
