Not able to verify business

I operate my company, RYGID AV, out of my home which happens to be on a private road that is not serviced by USPS. I use a PO Box for all my mail correspondence. During setup it won't allow me to put a PO Box in and I have waited 14 days like it advised and now it wants my URL for maps (which isn't available) and images of my business. Again, I work out of my home which I can provide an image or 2 for but I don't have a posted sign, etc. I typically don't service clients from my home, I go to them but I still wanted to be posted on Google for my location. What do I do?

Hi @Ryan G, this is a fairly common scenario. Request the postcard, and after a week or so, contact GMB support and explain the situation. They should be able to help you with a manual verification as long as everything is in line with the GMB Quality Guidelines
