Can't find places ID

Hi All

 

I'm trying to create a link to aid people in writing reviews. That's no problem, done it umpteen times before but to do that, I need the Places-ID.

 

Normally, I just plug the business name into https://developers.google.com/places/place-id but this time, there's no results coming back.

 

So firstly, why is nothing coming back? Have I omitted something vital from the setup? And how else can I find the Places-ID?

 

All ideas welcome :)

 

The My Business Place is verified. It has a review on there already so it can be reviewed. It's on Google Maps just fine at https://www.google.com/maps/place/BNI+Eclipse+:+Networking/@53.356038,-2.996206,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s...

 

Any pointers much appreciated. Thanks - Dunc

I dont know if this helps but I found a bit of a workaround. Go directly to google maps https://www.google.co.uk/maps find the business there and when it comes up you will have the options: Save, Nearby, Send to your phone and share. If you click share and then the checkbox that says short URL you can just send that to people.

 

I cannot find places ID for the one I wanted either!

Here is your place-ID: ChIJAxQ2UlQne0gR18U5fkHALk0

And this is the link to gather reviews:

I am having the same issue. Have looked in source code, tried the API place finder, etc. Here I am on Google Maps: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Wine+Tastings+with+Brian/@33.7805987,-85.5022203,8z/data=!3m1!4b1!...

 

Any idea how to find the place id so I can create a link for reviews?

since your listing is a service area with hidden address your listing doesn't have a PlaceID.

 

The only alternative option for you would be creating a link based on the method as per third party websites like
