csv-file via GMP API

Can we send the csv-file via GMP API? Or shall we upload this file to Google, but only in auto mode?

(We are speaking about the bank system, and we can't import files manually all time, but GMP API cannot perform the bulk load)

If you have an application built using the API, create a routine that can loop through your uploaded file and use accounts.locations.create (https://developers.google.com/my-business/reference/rest/v3/accounts.locations/create) or accounts.locations.patch (https://developers.google.com/my-business/reference/rest/v3/accounts.locations/patch)

Hello, Phillip!
As I understand the whole process consists from two steps:
The first one: I should upload file to our GMB account;
The second one: I should create routine that can loop through our uploaded file
Is my assumption right?

No - sorry for the misunderstanding -- I thought you were using the API to build your own tool. It sounds like you are actually interested in using the bulk upload tool to directly import your locations via a csv file.

Hi @Анна Т & @Никита П,

 

The Google My Business API provides a way for you to manage your business locations in Google My Business programmatically. This API lets developers build tools that help businesses manage their Google My Business accounts and locations more efficiently on Google.

 

Importing a .csv file to update and create multiple locations is not supported via the Google My Business API. Please use the Google My Business UI to import your bulk upload spreadsheet.

 

Thanks, 

Terry
