Address and Business Confirmation Issue

Hi, I am subleasing my business space, and the person I am subleasing space from will not allow me to receive mail at my office address. I cannot access my mail, and therefore cannot confirm my business through Google. Is there any other way I can confirm my business without checking the mailbox?

Many businesses within businesses are not able to have a listing... although some are able. Please use this information to learn more the guidelines for representing a business on Google.


Once you understand all of that info and your business listing qualifies, you can use this information to verify your Google My Business listing, which offers multiple ways to verify. If none of those options are presented to you, then you have to request a post card, wait 14 days and then you would be eligible to get direct assistance from support. The system will track the post card request, so this step does need to be done. 


If you do request the post and do wait more than 14 days for a postcard and it does not arrive (or the code does not work), you can contact business support via one of these options and ask for help in getting verified:



Kind Regards,
