Information Only and Basic Subscriptions are allow only one category and one subcategory in that primary category. See Video
Exceptions to category rules occur for the hospitality industry involving accommodations and restaurants. This is necessary in order to adequately represent that hotel or restaurant properly.
All other subscription levels are paid subscriptions have various amounts of categories depending on the subscription level. They range from 20 categories to 60 categories. The user can see the primary categories when they click on any trade area. The subcategories are displayed when the user clicks onto a primary category. See all Trade Areas.
Each primary category has numerous subcategories. Many of the subcategories give the consumer additional information about the services of the business. Some businesses such as the trades may be listed in several areas, and one never knows the key primary category that the consumer will select.
The business can only select subcategories they provide through their employees or that they provide directly to the owner. Do not list subcategories that are contracted to others.
An example may be builders, home builders, general contractors. They are included in those categories but are not electricians, plumbers, roofers, etc.
