I Don't Receive Post at my Business Address - How to Verify?
Google my Business guidelines state that I cannot use a PO Box to register my business page, BUT my physical business address does not receive post, so how do I verify my business ?
You must still use your physical address of the business regardless if you receive post at the address or not.
Request your verification postcard. When your postcard has not arrived after 14 days, you can now contact Google Business Support to help complete the verification process.
Your address, corresponds with the PIN marker in Google Maps. This is how people find your business and also how Google will determine where to show your business for location based searches.
If you were allowed to use a PO Box, all your customers would be arriving at a PO Box location and calling you to say, "where are you, I can't find you" ... not a great experience for your customers or Google users.
