Request contains an invalid argument
This error can be one of a few reasons:
1) Google My Business doesn't allow you to post through its API. According to its guidelines, any business or brand categorized by Google as a chain is not allowed to schedule posts at this time. This is determined by Google's internal chain detection. More info on this can be found here.

2) Your image is either too large or too small for Google My Business.
Minimum size of 500 x 400
Maximum size - 2120 x 1192
To check the size of your image, click here:

GIF's are not allowed on GMB.

3) You have more than the maximum 1500 characters allowed in a Google My Business post.

Request is missing required authentication credential. Expected OAuth 2 access token, login cookie or other valid authentication credential. See
This error means your Google My Business account needs to be reconnected. On the Accounts page of OneUp, click the "Refresh" button of the GMB account.

Creating/Updating a local post is not authorized for this location
Make sure that your Google My Business location has been verified. We have seen some cases where businesses have duplicate listings of the same location, and accidentally connect the wrong one to OneUp. If you have duplicate listings, make sure the correct one is connected.

Some industries such as Tobacco and Hotels are not allowed by Google My Business to publish posts.

Missing or invalid image file
If you get this error, it usually means your image was too large or too small for Facebook's API.
Try to keep your image under 2048 x 2048 pixels. To check the size of your image, click here:

On rare occasions, images under 2048 x 2048 pixels may still get this error. Try rescheduling the failed post.

If you scheduled this image via the OneUp Chrome extension, the issue may be that you scheduled a thumbnail of the image, rather than the full size image. To avoid this happening again, try right-clicking and opening the image in a new tab, then scheduling with the Chrome extension.

|ERROR -POST- Array ( [message] => Unknown Server Error. [status] => fail )

This usually means your image is too large or small for Instagram. We recommend using a minimum width of 1080 pixels, and a height between 566 and 1350 pixels (1080 x 566 - 1350)
1080x1080 is recommended for square images. To check the size of your image, click here:

Additionally, images that are over 800 KB sometimes get this error, even if they meet the dimension requirements. Try again with a smaller image if possible.

If your image meets these standards, sometimes this error message means Instagram's API had a temporary error. Try rescheduling the post.

|ERROR -05.1- IG M Error (Message):The password you entered is incorrect. Please try again. | bad_password | Array

You changed your Instagram password and must reconnect your Instagram account to OneUp.

Tweet needs to be a bit shorter

Make sure you are under Twitter's 280 character limit.

Some error occured while configurint the post

If you have fewer than 2200 characters, this error sometimes occurs due to a temporary error on Instagram's end. Try rescheduling the post.

Invalid parameter

(#100) url should represent a valid URL

These errors normally occurs when you try to import a private photo via CSV upload or Chrome Extension.
Images imported via CSV or Chrome Extension have to be publicly accessible, and not in a private file such as Google Drive or Google Photos.

Another cause could be the image size being too large for Facebook. Try to keep images under 2048 x 2048 pixels and they should post fine. To check the size of your image, click here:

Client error: POST resulted in a 401 Unauthorized response: {"serviceErrorCode":65602,"message":"The token used in the request has expired","status":401}
