What is a Premium Provider?

A Premium Provider is a provider with a completed profile - when you click on their business card you can see details about the services that they offer and not just their contact details. Premium Providers generally have more ratings and often offer specials to Ledula members.

As a Service Provider how do I get listed on Ledula?

You can’t list yourself on Ledula because we only want service providers who have been recommended by the Ledula community. The easiest way to get listed is to get one of your existing customers to add you to their address book. Once you are listed be sure to look at our Service Providers page to get more information on how Ledula can assist you.

What does "verify" mean?

Once we've contacted a provider to be sure that their contact details are correct and up-to-date, we say they've been verified. We'll do this again every year to be sure that the details you load onto the site haven't changed, so you don't have to worry about updating them yourself. Once their details have been verified, you should see a "VERIFIED" stamp on the provider's business card.
