There you need to specify the country and the language of your store.

Keep in mind that a review service is unavailable for particular countries.

The next step is to integrate your account into a webstore. Navigate to Settings → Business Information → Website.

Here you need to validate your website and claim it.

You may choose any type of verification, e.g. via pasting the necessary code into your home page heading.

In this case, go to your Magento admin panel and proceed to Content - Design - Configuration. Find the necessary design setting and click Edit.

You can open the HTML Head tab and paste the code into Scripts and Style Sheets field.
