Error: This category isn't supported in GB. Choose a supported category from the list that appears when you start entering a category.: IT support and services, Computer Shop


We are an IT Support & Repair Company so we deal with all IT Hardware and Software Support. Just tried to add additional categories on the my business page but it came up with that error. I don't understand why.


Is there any way I can add them?


Thank you for your help in advance!

GoogleMyBusiness doesn't provide adding any categories not listed in their list of default categories.


The actual list for the UK is categories_en_GB.csv


In case you are trying to select and use any one of the listed cat's of categories_en_GB.csv to no avail let me know please.

Thank you but if it's not allowed in GB, i'm failing to understand why it comes up on the list when I type Computer or IT. But thank you! I'm going to add ones using the list you provided and proceed. See how it goes.
