How does the Services Directory work?

The Services Directory is a list of businesses and their services.

You can create and maintain your entry in the directory.

You can purchase a Basic, Standard or Premium listing.

In order to assure the quality of the contents of the directory, TOPRA review and approve both new entries and updates to entries.

So, your business details will be displayed when:

  • you have created or updated your entry
  • TOPRA have reviewed and approved the new or updated entry
  • you have purchased a Basic, Standard or Premium listing

How do I create my entry?

When you register for a business account an entry is created for you automatically, pre-populated with information from your business profile.

How do I update my entry?

Use the "Services Directory" tab to view your entry summary page.

Use the "edit" link in the summary table to edit your entry. Remember to click "Save" at the end of the form when updating your entry.

How do I purchase a Basic, Standard or Premium listing?

On your entry summary page use the "Buy now" button next to the listing you wish to purchase.

Can I upgrade from Basic and Standard listings?

Yes. Use the "Buy now" button next to Upgrade on your entry summary page.

How do I know what my entry will look like?

Once you have created your entry, a preview of it is displayed on your entry summary page.

I've updated my entry but the changes are not displayed in the directory

Your changes are awaiting approval for publishing by TOPRA. You will see "Pending Approval" in the Entry Status column on your entry summary page.
