If I am a buyer do I need to subscribe on the SpotzCity website?

No, buyers do not need to subscribe. The subscription is for business entrepreneurs "only" at this time. Buyers may search the databases to find small businesses to patronize without a subscription. The other function that buyers and non subscribers have access to is the For Sale Page.

What is included on the For Sale Page?

The For Sale page is a list of businesses that are currently for sale that potential entrepreneurs or buyers can search to determine if they are interested in buying.

How does the search for businesses work?

When a small business registers and enters their business location, the SpotzCity website uses geolocation to allow buyers to find businesses at a particular location. Geolocation is the geographic coordinates of any object or source based on location. SpotzCity does not select businesses for a buyer, it is all based on what the buyer enters as their search criteria. So if a buyer is searching based on a diversity and location, SpotzCity will pull each supplier that fulfills that search and allows the buyer to decide which business to buy from.
