How to verify/Sign-up a business with just a P.O. Box Address

Island Painting

P.O. Box 5693

Grand Island, NE. 68802

(308) 258-2247

I own a painting business and want to use my P.O. Box as the business location and the google sign up will only allow a physical street address but we do not have one since we are a service that goes to the client location only.  We even checked yes for the option at the bottom of the first sign-up page that asked if we were a service that went to client's location and it still would not allow us to continue without street address. How can we still sign up/verify our business with just the P.O. Box?

I'm afraid

Google doesn't allow any P.O. Box Address as business addresses.

I understand you are a service area business and wont show you home address.

That's fine


Please specify you business with your physical street address but as Service Area Business with hidden Address.

Just follow the 4 steps according and make sure having unchecked the option "I also serve customers at my business address"

This will hide your address to the public.

Good luck
