I want to receive the verification code in a different adress

Hi!

 

I need to receive the verification code in another postal adress (which is not the location of my business that I want to have in Google My Business). How can I do it?

 

Thanks!

hi Hidden C

Short answer - you can't.

Long answer - Google needs to know that a business is either physically located at a certain location (bricks and mortar) or being run from a certain area (service area business) to ensure they have the most up to date Maps and that spammers are not trying to rort the system. One of the ways they confirm this by sending the postcard to that actual address, not to a mailing address.

Why can you not use the location of your business to receive the postcard?

Hi, thanks for your answer!

The problem is that our business adress is different that our fiscal
adress. Is this a problem?

it shouldn't matter as Google isn't verifying yuor fiscal address but your
physical address of the business
