Business Verification: Mailing Address different than physical address.

My business' physical address and mailing address are different. I pay a third party annually for my website, therefore I cannot verify online. I tried verifying using my mailing address and then changing the physical address once verified. Now I am asked to verify again because I changed my physical address. Can someone please call to verify my business?

Hi @Dana J, don't mess around with the address. That will end up causing more problems. 


Use the proper physical business address. Request the postcard. Contact GMB Support and explain the situation and they should be able to get you verified. 


Providing your phone number at this forum won't get you a call back. In fact, it will likely result in unwanted phone calls from people trying to sell you online marketing services. 


Let me know if you have any more questions.

Can you explain to me what Google My Business is? I've gone through a lot
to try to get my business recognized in a google search. I signed up
through Google My Business and haven't been able to verify my actual
location because I don't receive mail there. I finally found a number to
call, waited on hold for 40 minutes, only to have them tell me they
couldn't have my business verified because it's a storage facility and that
they were going to delete my business from Google My Business. I am soooo
confused. How do other storage facilities show up in the listing below a
map with their businesses pin pointed on the map? I have listened to
Google's how-to videos, read articles, and flipped through everything I can
find on Google's site. What can Google My Business do for my business?
Thank you for any help you can provide.
