Fuel Price update API

Postby KaiTakac » Tue Mar 12, 2019 3:05 pm

Hi there,
I'm wondering if there is a possibility to update fuel prices via an API. In Austria we have a law which requires fuel stations to report their prices to a central database operated by the government and it is possible to access that database via an API. So I would like to write a gateway which would update the fuel prices in Waze based on that information.

I have tried to look at the developer portal on Google but apparently it is not possible?

Cheers
Kai

It used to be possible.
Please provide Waze (via CM) with the needed info. They'll take care of it.

I think we are looking for the same solution in the Netherlands. Many prices are available but right now there is no option to send this information to Waze.

Few month ago Waze reported to me they are not going to import data from third party anymore .
They decided as well do not remove Credits from Waze info as low priority

They told me to send in the feeds, so they can import it anyway. Maybe Waze staff can comment on this?

Yes, any chance to get an official comment here?

Is the normal workflow, that one provides Waze with a feed and they will develop the import to their application themselves?

There was an official import available up till a few weeks/months ago. So it's probably still possible, just not published. Judging the about section there are still prices imported for south america.
