How do I set up a Premier Listing?

Stage 1 - Claim the Listing
Each Listing, standard or premier, is assigned to a single UKC User Profile. Make sure you are logged on to UKClimbing.com and go to the individual Listing page. Click on the 'Update this Listing' link under the map. One the next page click the option under Listing Owner which states 'Yes, I'm employed or involved with this Listing'. This will assign your profile to the Listing so that all future updates are directed to you. Once you own a Listing, you will be able to update and maintain the information instantly without it having to be approved by a moderator.

Stage 2 - Create Premier Listing
As the Listing Owner you will get extra options on the 'Update this Listing' page. You can select betwen 6 months and 12 months Premier Listing and upload a photo. This procedure is fully automatic and you will need a Credit/Debit Card ready to go through the payment system.

That's it! Once your listing subscription is close to running out you will be emailed and given the option to renew it for a further 6 or 12 months.

Where is my Premier Listing?
Each Listing has its own dedicated page. You can locate it by using the search function on the main Directory page. Just search using the name, the post code, or the type of business. As your search is refined, the listings below will change and your Premier Listing box listing will appear below. Click on the box to get the full listing. You can then bookmark this page so that you can go back an edit it at any time.

Do I need to have a Premier Listing in order to claim a listing?
No. All Listings can be claimed by a person associated with the listing, including the standard listings which are free.

I am not given the option to Claim a Listing but it is my company/business/club/etc ?
Only one UKClimbing.com registered user can be assigned to a Listing. If you wish to be that person but are not given the option then that means someone else has claimed it and their name will be displayed on the 'Update this Listing' page. If this User Profile is not familiar to you (an associate or an old profile) then contact the Directory manager.

How do I include a photo in my Listing?
Only Premier Listings are allowed to upload photos. This option is offered during the process when you set up a Premier Listing. Have your photo ready beforehand - the photo file should be JPEG format and under 1Mb in size. Use the 'Choose File' button to navigate to your JPEG image to upload it. Once the photo is uploaded it will appear in the top right-hand corner of your Premier Listing. You may change this photo at any time simply by uploading a new one.

Do I need a special User Profile to set up a Premier Listing?
No, you just need a User Profile. Please avoid using company names in your UKClimbing.com User Profile unless you take out a Commercial Profile. Your profile name will only appear on the 'Update this Listing' page so there is little to be gained by including your company name as your profile name.

How do I pay for a Premier Listing?
You will need to use a credit or debit card through our WorldPay system. Have your card ready when you start to update your Premier Listing.

Can I remove negative User Comments from my listing
UKC Users are able to submit comments to all listings and these comments will automatically appear without being moderated. The owner of a Premier Listings is able to remove any comments they wish and is given this option on the 'Update this Listing' page. Standard Listing owners are not given this option, however we will consider removing comments at the request of the Listing owner but it will be done at our discretion.

Can I edit my Premier Listing?
Yes. You can edit it at any time and the updates will take effect immediately.

    - Sexual or pornographic products or services
    - Anything illegal under UK or EU law
