misregistered business

I verified our business as a business with a location. I should have registered it as a service area business, and now I cannot change it to a service area business. How do I register it as a service area business? I have a new verification code which was delivered by postcard.

@matt w You can adjust the service area settings in your dashboard. Here's the help doc - https://support.google.com/business/answer/3038163?hl=en

If your business serves a non-local customer base, such as nationwide or worldwide, you are better off creating a G+ Brand page instead of a G+ Local page. A G+ Local page will only ever rank in its local area anyway.

What type of business is it?

Thank you Colan. How can I make that area world-wide? Do I have to enter country names one by one?

ebusiness? Online only? Or do you meet your customers in-person?

Do you have a local market as well as the worldwide?
