We have a new location that we thought we could get mail. I tried and it turns out we can't. But we do have a phone number.

How or who do I contact to get a phone verification? It is not an option.

If it makes a difference this is one of several that we have already verified.

I called the phone number but I see that is no longer an option. What is the best way to talk to someone about this? Or is that not possible anymore?

I was able to contact them through Google Ads account. I guess they will proceed via email.

Wow - they don't do phone verification any more? That's too bad. Only postcard I guess.

Maybe it's different when you're claiming an existing location instead of setting up a new one, but I've been experiencing the opposite issue lately - Google won't give me the option to postcard verify but will try to get me to phone or email verify. Alas, neither of those work for us.

Thanks, I did speak to somebody and they said someone would follow up via email but I haven't seen that yet.

Sorry let me clarify... they don’t have phone support anymore where you call in.
