no place to enter verification code

Explorer ✭ ☆ ☆

I have a verification code but there is nowhere to enter it. It says there should be an "enter code" on the blue banner but there isn't. There is a redstrip saying I need to verify and a botton for "verify now" - but that simple leads to a place where I can request another postcard.

What can I do?

I might have made edits! Can't really remember.
What do I do now?

This usually happens in case you made any edits after requesting the PIN
or
in case the PIN expired (note: all PINs expire 30 days after requesting them)

the new PIN arrived.

argh. Okay. The whole system is incredibly annoying.
However, many thanks to you, personally, for a quick and helpful reply!

Incidentally. You were right, and I have now managed to get everything sorted.
I got an unhelpful, incorrect answer from Google support! You were the one who solved it for me.

I live in South Africa and the only way I seem to be able to get a verification code is via post card. Our postal system is so slow that it will definitely expire before I receive it. Is there any way around this?
