Is it possible to hide the address including City and Zip Code?

I need to open a Google Business account for a customer, which has an online only business. I know that I can simply pick the 'storefront' option to hide the exact address, but the city and zip code still shows. Is there a way to hide those too? I am not even sure why Google needs this incomplete information to be there anyway.

Hello, an online-only business should create a brand page instead of a Google My Business listing: https://support.google.com/business/answer/4570248

Its not possible to hide city and zip for a GMB listing.

More:

Its not even allowed to create for an "an online only business" a GoogleMyBusiness listing according their guidelines.

Their guidelien very clearly inform any GoogleMyBusiness listing have to have and make  "in person contact" to their customers.

 

ordeing online any stuff and getting delivered it to a customer doesn't count as an "in person contact" of the business.
