Connecting your Yelp business(es) to Funnel is simple. In this article, we'll show you how it's done.
Get access to the Yelp Reporting API
To import data from Yelp, we use their Reporting API. This API uses a set of credentials that are separate from their other APIs, and separate from your normal login information.
To get access to the Reporting API, simply reach out to your assigned Yelp representative and they'll help you out. You can also reach out to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that your eligibility for Reporting API access will depend on your Yelp ad spend.
If you plan to connect a lot of businesses, please ask your Yelp representative for a comma-separated list of all business IDs associated with your Yelp account, as this will greatly simplify the next step of the process.
Connect your Yelp locations to Funnel
You should now have a set of credentials for the Reporting API, given to you from a Yelp representative. In Funnel, connect a new Yelp data source, entering your credentials when prompted.
After you've submitted your credentials, you will be asked to submit a comma-separated list of Yelp business IDs for businesses you would like to connect. Input this into the appropriate field and click next, at which point we will retrieve metadata for all the businesses and present you with a list of businesses to connect to Funnel.
