Received Verification Post Card but Cannot Find my business to verify

Hi All

 

I have recently set up a Google My Business account and have now received the post card verification through the post, however when I go to the my business page and follow the instructions, to "Verify Now" I click the tab and it's asking me to verify by mail by sending out another post card, there is no option to input the code I have been sent. 

 

No verify option appears at all, please help

 

Thanks in advance

Hello Donna, 

 

Did you try going  to the URL listed in the postcard?

Or go to the business dashboard >> https://business.google.com/manage/

 

Select the business >> there should be a Bar across the top saying Verify, Enter Code

If not it must have been somehow reset. Try requesting the code again and verify. 

If not working again, I would suggest contacting Google my Business

Contact business support >> https://support.google.com/business/contactflow

 

Thanks

there aretwo possible reason for such behavior:

1# the PIN expired (as it does by default aftere 30n days)

or 

2# you made any changes after requesting the PIN and before getting it and having it entered.

Means: oyu need to request a new PIN.

 

The old one is now useless.
