How to verify your Google Business Profile via Live Video Call
Step 1: Get ready for the call
Make sure you have a stable internet connection and you are able to join a video call with your mobile phone.
Be at your business location and be ready to show the Google representative your office/store and any proof of business ownership on the video call.
- Your current location: Show outside signs, like your street’s name, nearby businesses, or the area around your business.
- Business or equipment: Capture your operations. This includes things like stock for sale, branded equipment, marketing materials, or tools you use to serve your customers.
- Proof of management: Show your access to employee-only items or areas. This includes things like a cash register, kitchen, storage room, or non-sensitive business documents. You can also use your keys to open your facility.
