How/where do I enter My PIN number after receipt by postcard? Grimble 4/2/09 8:47 AM
I hae read the help screens which helpfully include a link to 'verification by postcard'. Then there is still nowhere for any input!  And the options are reuced to SMS or Phone.  The instructions are
 
Step 3 :"click sign in to access the Local Business Centre (Center)"
Step 4 : " Enter your IN beside the appropriate listingand click Go."
 
BUT THERE IS NO WHERE TO PUT IT!! 
 
I notice that there are many such questions on the forum.  Has any one had an answer which works?

I have read the help screens which include a link to 'verification by postcard'.  But there is still no where to enter the PIN.   The options on the list page are reduced to 'by phone' or 'by SMS.'
 
The instructions are clear:
 
Step4 "Enter your PIN beside the appropriate listing and click Go."
 
The problem is he absence of a location to Enter the PIN.
 
Has anyone had an answer / solution?

Hi

I had something similar - I deleted my listing, re-entered all my details and added my mobile so I could verify straight away - once I got the pin text'd to me I then deleted my mobile and all was well - hope this helps

I also have spent an hour looking for the elusive box to post the pin.  Upon using the phone verification mode I looked for the place to post the pin.  I deleted and repeated 3 times with no luck.  I also switched computers for the exercise thinking it might be a security setting on my end.  Again, no luck.  If someone comes up w/ a solution I'd like to hear it.

I went into edit to try and find where to enter the Pin no. but there was no where so I added my mobile no. as well.  No email appeared with a link and still there was no where to enter a pin.  Everything appears okay on line so what does the entry of the PIN no. do?

I think Google are having a laugh at our expense!  The service looks wonderful in preview mode but never actually works so that other people can see it!  Or have I missed something?

I have the same problem as everyone else. The post card is here on my desk--no place to enter the pin number on the postcard. I'm afraid the only people who visit the pages are people with the problem.

Well I'm glad I'm not the only one with this problem. I thought it was just me! Google has to do something about this!!!

I'm having the same problem. I can't find anywhere to enter the pin I received from Google. Very odd!

Problem still persists as of 11-6-09. No field to input PIN verification number, which I waited for after repeated attempts at phone verification failed.

Me too.  There is no place to enter PIN # for verifcation or activation of my listing.  Anyone with a solution yet?  Thanks for listening.

Also have the problem - really annoying!  No where to put pin.

This is really, and I mean really ridiculous for a gazillion dollar company to be having a problem like this. Same Thing! I receive my pin by phone no problem. The problem is there is no place to enter the pin. Let me repeat that! There is no place on the page to enter any pin of any kind anywhere on the page.

A month ago when submitting for a client, there was a place to insert the pin. Now there is not. I am not sure if anyone from Google ever reads these so let me make sure you understood what i said.

THERE IS NO PLACE TO ENTER A PIN ON THE PAGE! My page just says awaiting verification! I call over and over for a new pin, still no place to put it. I delete, redo, delete, redo, delete again, and redo, get a new pin, and it is always the same....... NO PLACE TO ENTER THE PIN..

UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  SHAME ON GOOGLE! THIS DOES NOT REPRESENT THE WE CAN AND WILL DO ANYTHING AND WE ARE THE BEST ATTITUDE YOU HAVE>

PLEASE HAVE THIS ISSUE FIXED!

Not fair to have competition listed up in the maps and I can't even get the opportunity to compete because there IS NO PIN BOX!
Re: How/where do I enter My PIN number after receipt by postcard? Orchid Carpet 12/3/09 11:33 AM
I have managed to fix this for me.  For some reason the screen was defaulting to 'English US', which put you in a different field - not sure if it was a timing thing.  Once I check (right hand corner) that I was in the UK domain it worked first time.  Hope this works for the rest of you.

Anyone found a solution to this? Not sure what the problem is with the Forum administrators, it would be nice to get a response from them about this issue.
Re: How/where do I enter My PIN number after receipt by postcard? mano.stephan 12/9/09 1:54 PM
Well I just deleted my listing and recreated it and the PIN field and GO button appeared after I received the PIN via phone. I had 2 listings for 2 different businesses and deleted both. So now I'll go and recreate the second business details.

WORKING...


Hi Guys,

I was very frustrated with this, but read on another thread to change the "time zone" in the top right to your country (I am in the UK and it said United States, so I changed that) and then he said to delete the listing and try again, and it worked! Somehow. 

I do hope this works for you

Hey folks, simply delete your listing and then reenter the information, you may have to do it more than once to get it to work. I tried everything else, from updating my browsers, to using different ones, etc. etc. Just follow the above step and it'll eventually work.

I was having similar problems finding where to enter PIN, but then I discovered that you don't go the Google Maps, but rather to Google Places.  I didn't have to delete or re-enter any information.  Once I logged into my google account I simply clicked on "Google Places" and my listing was there waiting for my verification PIN.  Hope that helps.
Re: How/where do I enter My PIN number after receipt by postcard? perplxd 6/5/10 2:01 PM
I was lost too until I read the directions on the postcard more closely. You don't go to Maps or Places.

You go to   http://www.google.com/local/add    and it pops up your biz listings and there's a clearly marked box that says 'enter your PIN'.

wa-la
Re: How/where do I enter My PIN number after receipt by postcard? dama17 7/26/10 4:03 AM
I have the sam e problem: I can't find any place where I can put my pin number.
Even if I change the time zone in the top right  or simply click on Google Places. ASnd the other thing is I can't even delete the ad , I can only edit it but without being able to change the mistakes.

Does someone can help me?

Re: How/where do I enter My PIN number after receipt by postcard? rbarnard 2/8/11 10:42 AM
I tried everything. Then I logged out and logged back in and the pin box was there. I hope this works for you.
