Retail businesses selling consumer items.
Businesses that offer only online, phone, or mail order sales will not be listed in Regional Shopping categories, with three exceptions:
(1) In countries other than the US, the B&E/Shopping category at the national level may contain online shopping sites that ship only in that country.
(2) Businesses that offer sales online or by phone/mail only to customers in a limited geographic area (example: online grocery delivery services) may be listed in a category corresponding to their sales area.
(3) Online shopping companies that have a substantial local presence (for example, as an employer) in the city where they base their operations may be considered for listing in that city. For example, amazon.com may be listed in Seattle, Washington, USA. (Note that many online retailers also maintain a bricks-and-mortar retail outlet as part of their operations base.)
