And if you have an operational website or Shopify store where customers can purchase products, enter the website address for the next step
For the next step, choose the Business category by selecting your niche from one of the available options in the dropdown
Proceed to the next step to enter your Business Address. Ensure that it is as accurate as possible so that customers can easily find your business when it shows up in Google Places results

The next important step would be to add your phone number. It's advisable to add a contact number if you're a physical store or offer service appointments to customers

Now for the verification process to let Google know that you are really the owner of the business for security concerns, you'll need to record a video by clicking on "Continue"
Now just complete the steps as mentioned in the instructions to complete the verification process.
And then proceed to set the working hours of your business
And then finally decide if you want to accept direct messages from customers when they have inquiries and want to message you after finding your business from Google search results
And then in the next profile completion step, add the description of your business which people would find in the overview section of your Google Business
Finally add images of your physical business location/office to help customers recognize your business and also for increasing credibility with potential customers
