This document was last updated on 2020-12-18. Please be sure to check back here often to ensure you have the latest information from Foursquare.

Important: Starting 2020-10-01, the primary method for submitting listings to Foursquare is via a flat-file delivery and as a result, data will be delayed in Foursquare Apps. For more information, check out the Data Delay Section. We are no longer supporting submission via our API, which will be discontinued soon. If you have concerns or questions, please reach out to listing-syndicator@foursquare.com.

About Foursquare

Foursquare is a technology company that has been around since 2009. We uses location intelligence to build meaningful consumer experiences and business solutions. We have two core consumer mobile apps: Foursquare City Guide and Swarm, as well as a suite of enterprise and advertising tools.

After the merger with Factual, the decision was made to migrate the primary method for submitting listings to Foursquare to a flat-file delivery and will no longer be supporting edits via our API, which will be discontinued soon.
