Points of Interest XML File Preparation

Uploading points of interest (POI) files in bulk allows you to create or replace multiple points of interest or addresses for a customer.

All the records in a XML file must be for the same object. When you process XML files:
  • Verify that all requried fields exist.
  • Files must be in UTF-8 format.
The POI data header must include:
<PoiDataHeader customerId="12345467" locationType="7" purgeExisting="true">
This adds an address for customer 1234567; the address is created with a location type of 7, and existing addresses with location type 7 are removed.
In addition to the header, the body of the bulk file should contain:
<Poi>
   <shortName>Starbucks Dublin</shortName>
   <longitude>123.309484</longitude>
   <latitude>123.309484</latitude>
   <accuracy>10</accuracy>
   <name>blah</name>
   <street1>blah</street1>
   <street2>blah</street2>
   <zip>blah</zip>
   <city>blah</city>
   <state>blah</state>
   <country>blah</country>
   <phone>blah</phone>
   <email>blah</email>
   <url>blah</url>
</Poi>
