Verifying Business Issue

Hi, 

 

I have been running a dance company for the last 9 years at a school and want to list my business on Google Maps. I rent the place and don't own it. How do I verify my business as Google is only providing me with the postcard option for verification? There is no email or phone verification option. My classes take place only in second half of the day and the studio is locked in the first half when the regular school is in operation. Please help

There are cases where these types of listing are present. If you look at the terms of service to be a location pin on Google Maps you have to be able to receive mail at that location. They are very specific about it, sorry to be the one with bad news. If you have a separate mailbox and post the correct hours so that Google knows your students can reach you then you could get verified. It is sort of their bat their ball kind of game. Here is a link to the guidelines part way down is a section on the address requirements may help but it is good to study all of it.
