Quick start

Step 1. Log in

Note. Don't use your personal username, such as from Yandex Mail or Yandex Disk, because you can't transfer your company to a different username.

Open Yandex Business and log in with your Yandex ID. If you don't have a username, sign up.

Step 2. Specify the company name and business categories

Find out if your business is in Yandex Maps.

My business is not yet in Yandex Maps
Enter the name of your company. Enter the main business category. To do this, start typing and select the category from the drop-down list. Once you add your company, you'll be able to select two additional business categories.
My business is already in Yandex Maps
You need to confirm that you are the owner of the business. To do so, follow the instructions in the Confirm your ownership rights to the company section. You don't need to complete the rest of the “Quick start” instructions.

Step 3. Add an address

Enter the address of the office, store, or branch your customers can visit. If your company works online and there's no actual address, select a city or region.

Step 4. Enter and confirm your phone number

  1. Enter the phone number. After you finish the registration, it will be displayed in the company profile, in Yandex Search, and in Yandex Maps.
  2. Enter your website or social media page.
  3. Choose a convenient way to confirm your number: by SMS or a call.
  4. Wait until you receive a message or an automated operator calls. It usually takes no more than 10 minutes.
  5. Enter the verification code to confirm your number.

Wait until your application is verified. That sometimes takes up to three days. You can track the verification status in the Requests → Confirmation section.

Once verification is complete, your company card will be published. You can find your company by name in Yandex Search the next day after publication.

If the status of your application doesn't change after two weeks, contact support.

Step 5. Fill out the company profile

  1. On the Businesses page, click the link in the company name.

  2. In the menu on the left, go to About the business → Data.

  3. Fill in your information. For more information, see Fill in the company information.

All data is moderated. The information must meet Yandex requirements.
