You can ensure that any such charges won’t apply to you by creating your page or profile now and locking in permanent free listings.

As the site reaches its full potential we anticipate very high rankings on search engines for Local Area of Shahdara for the majority of search terms.

Why isn’t my shop or business listed?

It is our vision to get every genuine market, event and stallholder onto our site, and we are making great progress in moving towards this goal.

However, Rome wasn’t built in a day and we have only been fully live for two months. There are many markets who are unaware of us, and many who do know about us, but haven’t yet got round to it. These markets are missing a great opportunity for them and their stallholders, so you could do them, and us a big favour by telling them about our 100% free facility and suggest they list.

 

We have given information about our shop. But still, it is not listed at the website. Why?

We try to maintain the genuineness of the shop to avoid any type of inconvenience to consumers who use our website for information. If the genuineness or reliability of the given information is not established properly, we do not publish the shop or business at the website. If you feel your shop as genuine and useful, please contact us with as much as reliable and genuine information.

The information of a shop or market is out of date

We are reliant on our market representatives who move around regularly to update the information of the market to keep them fresh. If someone is failing to do so please let us know and we will seek to resolve the issue. Thanks!
