How to not display address in Google Maps Local Listing?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

 

Is there a possibility that the address will not show in the local listing? We have requested a business to be listed in the local listing for Google Maps but as much as possible we do not want the address to display. The services and products that is being provided is delivered and it is not a store location like any other small business. We saw something listed like this - http://prntscr.com/egx3dv

It doesn't have the complete address and it only shows the city and state. Also it doesn't have a direction button. How can we do that? 

 

Please advise.

 

Thanks

Thanks @TomW

This should hide the address and the direction button on the listing is that correct?

Yep @Glady M

 

Be sure the box is unchecked that says:

I also serve customers at my business address. (Your address will be hidden from the public if this box isn't checked.)

Hi @TomW

 

We have verified the listing however when we checked it it still shows partly of the address we used to get the pin. Please see screenshot - http://prntscr.com/etflix

 

Unfortunately this is a type of business that needs appointments and have the unit delivered to the customer. The address where the products are located is on a warehouse within the same state (NSW). The do not receive post mail there and no one to receive it as well if in case someone will send one. 

 

Would it be possible to just show the state (New South Wales) alone or maybe hide all of it?

 

Please advise.

 

Thank you.
