What are Category Limitations?
A Category is any subcategory in any primary category. What is a category?
All paid subscriptions have a minimum of 40 and up to 60 subcategories. If you contract a service out to another company then you cannot use that category in your listing.
Some of these examples clarify our position.
A General Contractor subcontracts to plumbers, electricians, roofers, carpenters, and others. They would not be able to state they offer any of those services. Even though you may have staff that oversees the operation of a subcontractor, you technically do not provide those services. Your proper categories may be General Contractors, Renovation Contractors, Builders, Home Builders.
An exception to the rule is where a General Contractor has employees that directly does the work, then they would be allowed to be in all of the designated categories.
Another example where they may be numerous approved categories is a clinic operating and offering the services of several disciplines including physio, chiropractic, massage, etc. All of the staff work under the umbrella of that clinic under contract. The clinic would be able to be in all categories as the delivery of those services are under one roof.
Some trades will be in multiple categories. An example may be the plumbing category; that may also cover air conditioning, heating, furnaces, fireplaces, and renovations
If the business needs clarification, then they can contact us. These are the primary categories and each open into several subcategories to give the business greater clarification. We upload the categories daily.
