The mbp_autopost_post_args filter allows you to alter the post arguments sent to Google My Business when the plugin creates an automatic post. It has 2 parameters, $args containing the post data and $location containing the GMB location ID.

Out of the box, Post to Google My Business will only auto-post “What’s New” posts. But using this filter you can make it automatically create product, event and offer posts. This is very useful if you have a plugin that manages such content and you want to automatically publish it to Google My Business.
