Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have a business in Costa Rica and I have tried getting verification code 2-3 times. Also I have tried recently on Sept 26 to get the verification postal code on my address. But it has been more than 20 days and i need to verify it as soon as possible. Please let me know is there any problem getting the postal code on Costa Rica addresses? How to overcome it and is there any other way to verify the business in Costa Rica?

 

Thanks in Advance

I am having the same issue. I have been requesting a postcard that I know will never show for the last three months.  There has to be a way to verify via satellite...?

Hello, they have suspended me because I use a land line phone and can not get a text passcode that way.  I have asked for a post card, but, the electronics they send me to request the postcard do not work, it times out.

 

I am very frustrated and feel that using a voice mail system should not be discriminated against?  Isn't that my choice?

Hi Jan and Vido

 

Unfortunately this is Google's playground and they get to set the rules, which means that for the majority of businesses, a postcard needs to be sent to their location for verification purposes. It is also Google's attempt to stop spammers - darn them, they're the reason we can't have nice things - and sadly taht does mean legitimate businesses get caught up in the net on occasion.

 

If you have been waiting more then 14 days for a postcard then I recommend getting in touch with GMB support via one of these options to ask for help in getting verified:
