Hi @Emad A,


First, if you haven't already, you will want to make sure you aren't eligible to verify using another method such as phone or email.


Google guidelines prohibit the use of a PO Box address to register a business. You also cannot use your personal address as it is not the correct address for your business, (unless you are a service area business and would be hiding your address on your listing).


Basically, the proper procedure is to still request the postcard be sent to your business address even if you cannot receive mail there, and when you haven't received your postcard after 14 days you can contact support. You must wait the full 14 days before support will assist you. For a good overview as well as instructions on how you should proceed, you should refer to this article.
