My business is Merchant Services or Credit Card Services. There is no business classification for it. The closest I can find is Credit Counseling and that doesn't work for me at all. Merchant Services and Credit Card Services are legitimate businesses and should have a classification.

Hi Mack

 

So looking at the address, this is a Service Area Business, in that you go out to clients businesses to provide your service.

 

Did you have your address hidden?  If not, please change that setting on your page.

Once your listing is compliant with the guidelines, we can submit the category request.

Hi @mack h

 

At first glance it doesn't appear your business is even eligible for a GMB listing.

Per the guidelines: 

https://support.google.com/business/answer/3038177

 

  • Brands, organizations, artists, and other online-only businesses aren't eligible for Google My Business listings.
  • Listings on Google My Business can only be created for businesses that either have a physical location that customers can visit, or that travel to visit customers where they are. 

Have I understood your business correctly?

Apparently you have not understood my business. 90% is done face to face. Most at the client's location. All I am asking for in a classification that fits my business.

Thanks, Mack

Hi Mack

 

Ah, thank you for clarifying.  Looking at the site, it looks like an online only business.

 

Will pass this on to Google.

Ok, I think I have hidden my address. Please let me know if there is anything more.
