What is a Subcategory?

A subcategory is any category within any primary category.

Our system allows up to 1 subcategory for an Information Only profile. 

Accounts allow between 5 and 60 subcategories dependent on the subscription type the purchased by the business owner.

The Basic Subscription allows 5 subcategories and is at no charge. 

See other Videos regarding our services. 

All our categories for each trade area in Canada are universal in every trade area. Click on a trade area and you will see a list of primary categories. Click on the primary category and you will see the subcategories. 

See Current Canadian Listings. 

Please note that categories must be performed by the business and not contracted out to others.  What does this mean?  See Link. 

The Site automatically reduces the subscription to an Information Only profile should the subscription be cancelled.  The business may also be archived.  See When We Archive a Business.

How We List Restaurants?

Our mechanism for listing  Restaurants as Information Only profiles does not follow our normal format for other business types. 

Information Only profiles give the business only one category and one trade area. 

Presentation for Restaurants would have to list cuisines and that would mean that some restaurants may have up to 20 subcategories just to give that restaurant an accurate presentation of that restaurant.  Unfortunately, because there are thousands of restaurants in Canada we will not be able to list all of them unless they apply for account status. 

Restaurants in one city may be in close proximity to restaurants in other cities and the consumer should be able to view all their options.   As a result, some restaurants may be listed in several other trade areas as an Information Only profile.  Restaurants with account status will be listed according to the trade areas allowed or their subscription type.  

The restaurant may be listed in our database according to the composite review of all their review sites.  Not all restaurants will have a composite review unless they have account status.  See our Business Order of Display. 

Each account type gives the Restaurant more presentation options just like other business types.  Trade areas and Categories will not be one of them as the restaurant will automatically retain what is listed as an Information Only profile

The Site automatically reduces the subscription to an Information Only profile should the subscription be cancelled.  The business may also be archived.  See When We Archive a Business.

Our Referral Program

The best referrals are from business owners. 

You might think that the best referral is from a consumer, but business owners readily measure the quality of another business owner and know who is good and who is not.  Our system wants the good ones. 

All Premium Subscriptions have the ability to refer others that they consider businesses of quality.   The referred business must become a paid subscription as our referral system applies to paid subscriptions only.  If the business is already on our system there is no referral fee. 

All referrals receive credits at the rate of 25% of the subscription type purchased that can be used towards video production.  The maximum credits allowed per year is $200.00.  

Our Site is unable to reduce subscription renewal costs because many businesses are on monthly fixed amounts.  

So if the business refers business here are the examples of the referral fee gained towards a video.   

The Basic Subscription is at no charge and the referral credit does not apply. 
All other subscriptions are based on what the business paid for the subscription.

Please note that the referral fee is based on what the customer actually paid.  Some BBB Accredited and Professional Businesses have built-in discounts to their subscription type.  The referral rebate is adjusted accordingly.  The business paying monthly does not get a referral fee until one year has been completed. 

The Plus subscription is at $99.00 and the referral credit is $25.00.
The Standard subscription is at 199 and the referral credit is $50.00. 
The Advanced subscription is at $299 and the referral credit is $75.00. 
The Professional subscription is at $599.00 and the referral credit is $100.00

The maximum a business may earn in one year is $250 in referral credits towards a video. This is our way of thanking you and promoting the site to others. 

The Site automatically reduces the subscription to an Information Only profile should the subscription be cancelled.  The business may also be archived.  See When We Archive a Business.
