Hi there.

 

We are a boutique, clothing and gift shop in Edinburgh, but unfortunately our USP as a shop for Fairtrade products is not addable as a business category. Surely this is a line of trade worldwide and should be recognized as such. Our tagline is Fairtrade, Organic, Handmade and just beautiful and the fairtrade aspect is a big draw for many of our customers. Is there a method to add this as a world recognized trading category?

 

Many thanks, Kerrie and Pete

Unfortunately there is no option to add custom categories to their default lists:

You however can use the feeback option left side of GoogleMyBusines to suggest this.
BUt I wouldn't hold my breath.

But you can sent stronger signals about such USP of your shop using "structured data" on your website through schema.org
