Hi, We're trying to verify our small business on google maps however the only verification option we get is by mail and we do not have any postal service at our business.
Cedar Nursery - 2191, Sandton, 2055, South Africa
Please advise on how to get it verified

Hi @Marion R


Because Maps and Google business pages are based on actual location, you need to use your physical address and request postcard verification.


When this has not arrived in 14days, you can then contact business support to complete the verification process to prove you are at that actual location.


After 14 days contact support:


Contact Business Support


OR - Go to Dashboard >> Manage Location

Top Right ( Hamburger Menu ) >> Support

Select Support >> Help Menu Pops Up

Scroll Down to Email
