Google my business verification WITHOUT postcard?

Google does not give a definitive answer as to how I can verify a business in GMB without postcards. It says that some businesses MAY be eligible for phone/email verification. Also, some businesses MAY be eligible for instant GMB verification through Search Console. But there's no definitive answer.

I remember reading somewhere that this workaround can be useful:
Create listings on business directories such as YP, CitySearch and Yelp.
Google will then automatically create a Maps listing for your business using that information, within 24-48 hrs.
Verify that Maps listing with your website's Search Console email address. This way, you (probably) won't need postcard verification.

How would you go about verifying a business in GMB without postcards?

What is you problem with the options Google offers? Why don't you just get a postcard sent?

No I don't have a problem actually. I was just thinking that since Google DOES allow verification WITHOUT postcards, there has to be certain criteria for that. I want to know if someone has done it in past.

i think it's not a good deal, verify without postcard. Google want to know your business is genuine or not. so simple step is postcard verification, also it's a low cost option

Yes, You right Google need to decide which one is genuine. But If you want multiple location than Google give you option phone/email verification...

Did you guys read the Guidelines for representing your business on Google to see if you are eligible to get verified?

Why are you trying to verify it without postcard, it is genuine way to verify, although how Google know about your business location ?

Go to Google Map Maker and try with add new place-->point the location in map-->browse your business category and add your business details. Wait for one week google will review and publish your place this is an alternative way and google is going to close map maker by end of this month. But I will suggest to go with postcard verification so that you will get instant editing and publishing options for your business.

Google my business verification without postcard not possible but if you not get your verification code on date then google verify you business by "vedio" verification.

So there is another way but it's option google not disclose with us.

Earlier google used to give other google users to endorse on new business listings, and this endorsement in the way it says the business is existed in particular address. if your listing gets multiple endorsements then google used to approve.
In either case (now a days), your business must be popular to let google approvers know from different sources of your online presence.
