How do I add a new business listing to SkypeFind?

  1. Sign in to Skype.
  2. Select the Call phones tab.
  3. Click the Directory tab (Skype 5.0 for Windows) or the Find businesses tab (Skype 5.1 for Windows).
  4. Click Recommend a business. (Alternatively, you can search for a business, then click Recommend a business from the search results page.)
  5. Add the required business details:
  •  Name
  • Location (City and area)
  • Select a country (choose a flag from the dropdown list)
  • The postcode
  • The phone number
  • Keywords – these should describe what the business does or offers, e.g. “Chinese takeaway” or “plumber” and any other details.
  • Type a review of the business into the Comments box, and select a rating.
  1. Click Save.


How do I edit a business listing?

If you find a business listing that has missing or incorrect information, then you can update it yourself with the correct details. To do this:

  1. Click on the business you want to edit.
  2. Click Edit details.
  3. Enter the correct details, then click Save.

When editing a listing’s details, you cannot edit the phone number. The telephone number acts as the unique identifier for each business listed on SkypeFind, so we keep this as the only fixed element for each listing.


What should I do if a number is incorrect or I want to report a concern?

Businesses occasionally change their numbers, or the person who created the initial listing may have typed the number incorrectly. If you find a number that is incorrect, click Report a concern to let us know, and we can change the listing.

Likewise, if you believe a review is inappropriate or offensive, or a listing should be removed, please report this to us. We will review the information and remove it if we feel it is necessary.
