If you have a physical location for one brand, but open another ecommerce store, can you set up a GMB listing?

Hi everyone,

I work for a furniture company and we have a physical office building with a showroom. While we have a showroom, it is not meant to be a customer facing one: we only have a select amount of pieces in it and use it a lot for work collaboration and photoshoots. But, if a customer wants to look, we usually don't turn them down, they just wont see much.

My question is, we've created several "pop up" style ecommerce sites (that are separate business entities) that cater to different customer niches. Does it violate GMB guidelines? Technically we have a physical location albeit limited to what's called "customer facing". From what I'm reading in the guidelines it seems like it could be on the border or not allowed. In that case, our main business/office would be violating that as well.

Thanks for your help.

You are correct that the ecommerce listings would not be allowed in Google My Business.

Thanks for the reply, Joy. I was hoping that wasn't the case because they are brand new businesses that hardly have any information online about them. Back to the drawing board!
