No results on Google Map for Place ID

Hi,

 

I have submitted by business on Google my business and I can see my business listing on google map search, however when I go to

https://developers.google.com/places/place-id

and search my business I do not get any results, therefore I don't know how to get Google map Place ID for customer reviews.

 

Would appreciate a bit of guide in right direction.

 

Thanks.

@Ahad R & @PriyaC

the search link doesnt give unique results.

Are you talking about this one:

If so:

I can confirm not getting the place ID  through  the steps explained in here:

 

Create a link for customers to write reviews

 

But I can provide you links enabling your customers to write a review to oyur business:

 

a long link: 

https://www.google.com/search?q=essex+maths+centre+186+Watson+Heights%2C+Chelmsford%2C+Essex+CM1+1AP...

 

and a shorted link:

see also my bug report at stack overflow help  for the "Place API":

Thank you very much Helmut and PriyaC,

I could now provide direct link for customer review, however, if I don't get Place ID, would it affect other services or disadvantage me in a way?

Could the reason for not getting place ID be the time, as I registered the business just few weeks ago?

Hi Ahad,

Not having a Place ID isn't going to affect other services as far as i'm aware.

We're still working out with Google why some businesses get a Place ID and others do not.
