    An ā€œAuthorized representativeā€ for a business can create an account for a business where that business has access and control over the account and listing.

    You agree not to register multiple user accounts to create multiple FREE listings.

  • b) Eligible Businesses: Your business must be within the local calling area of London, ON, Canada. Your listing must be of a business that provides a physical product or service and not solely an Internet service or website. Example, a listing for a website similar to Kijiji, Groupon, Facebook, Photobucket and eBay etc. Websites such as these that only provide information and can be housed anywhere are not eligible to list. Another example would be a business located in the local London Ontario area that only provides Internet sales solely is NOT allowed to list under the terms of use.

    Additional Examples of eligible businesses: Head office in Toronto, your location is a store front allowing for the purchase and pickup of product at your London location your listing is eligible or if you provide personal contact with the customer at their location example a music teacher or photographer.


  • c) Business Name / Title: Enter your business mame exactly as registered for business purposes with Revenue Canada and in the off line world.
    Do Not add a catch phrase or extra words.

    Example: A landscaper also has a bookkeeping business. They can have a listing to list the Landscaping business and a separate listing to for their bookkeeping business. Another acceptable example would be, lawyers unrelated in practice but at the same business location. The first lawyer is a criminal lawyer, registers an account in their name and posts a listing specific to their type of practice. The second unrelated lawyer is a real estate lawyer could create their own user id and posts a listing specific to their type of practice.

That listing can of course list the 30 lawyers and their different areas of practice within the single listing.
