  3. Tap on your business and it will prompt you to a new window.

  6. Here you need to confirm your business. Tick the option - I'm authorized to manage this business . . .  > Continue.
  7. Tap on the Mail button > Google will show you postcard sample > Type a contact name if necessary > Hit on the Send Postcard button.
  8. Within few weeks (less than 30 days) this postcard should reach the destination. 
  9. After you get the postcard, get the PIN from there, and follow the steps again. Finally verify your business location by entering the PIN. That's it!

Verifying your business address on Google will provide you several advantages. When people search for your organization using Google search, Google will show your business location on Google Map, including your phone number and web address.

And from that search result, your prospective clients can make direct phone call to you. It will also include photos and images you provided.
