Verifying your Facebook Business Page conformation

Verify without a phone

Don’t have a phone number or running into issues? You’re also able to verify your page with documentation. To use this method, you’ll be required to provide one of the following:

  • Utility bill for your place of business
  • Local business license (issued by your city, county or state)
  • Tax document for your business
  • Certificate of formation (for a partnership)
  • Articles of incorporation (for a corporation)

Once Facebook receives this information, they’ll review your request and respond within three business days.

And ta-da! You’ve got the verified business checkmark! Check out our retailer Peace by Piece with the completed verification.

Now that you have the perfect verified Facebook business page, start scheduling your social posts and increase your social engagement!
