What is Facebook Business Verification?

Facebook Business Manager Verification allows Facebook to determine whether the account belongs to a legitimate business or an organization. 

To get your Facebook Business Manager verified, here are the legal documents that you need:

  • Legal details of your business (business name, address, contact info)

  • A legal document containing the Legal Name of the Business and Legal Address, preferably GST or Bank Account Statement.

  • A working website. The website must mention at its footer the exact Legal Business Name (as cited in the documents).

  • Proof of access to the business such as an official Business email (email with the same domain of your website).

Note: Please note that the image of your document must be clear, in colour and shows the whole document.

Carefully fill in your Organization's details!

In the name section, fill in the Exact Name mentioned in your legal document.

In address, write the Same Address as mentioned in your legal document. Adding a different one might cause problems with your approval from Facebook.

In the address row, be sure to add only the location of your business and not the state & Pincode.

E.g. If your address is 3013, Chandni Chowk, Sita Ram Bazar, Old Delhi, 110006.

Then, only add '3013, Chandni Chowk, Sita Ram Bazar' in the address row.

Add Delhi in City & State and 110006 in Pincode.

Add the Town, State & Pincode in the next row as shown in the above image.

In phone number, it's not necessary to add your WhatsApp Business API number. You can add any other business number you wish to receive communication from Facebook.

Last, add the URL to your website. This website should contain the business legal name at the footer so that facebook verifies that this business is linked with the legal name.

Step 7  Choose your company or click 'Organization not listed'

Once you submit all the details, Facebook verifies which all companies match the entered details. Choose only the company with the exact matching details with your business.

You should also have your business phone number for verification.

Even if your organization's not listed, don't worry. Click 'Organization not listed' & proceed to the next step.

Step 8 Add supporting Documents for your Business

Once you submit all the details, Facebook verifies which all companies match the entered details. Choose only the company with the exact matching details with your business. You should also have your bus-ecxy0

If in the previous step, your business wasn't listed, add supporting documents to verify your business. Make sure to upload the same document in both places to avoid confusion.

Step 9  Choose a Contact Method

Note: Email is the recommended source of contact and improves your chances of getting verified.

Add your official business email ID with your same domain name (e.g. shivam@aisensy.com) & press next.

If you don't have a registered email ID with your domain name, choose phone or text for verification.

Once you submit all the details, Facebook verifies which all companies match the entered details. Choose only the company with the exact matching details with your business. You should also have your (1)-fgryn

Step 10 Verify the Code

Verify the code sent to your Email ID or enter the OTP sent via text or phone.
