As we know, Facebook is trying to make a more significant eCommerce push via its new Facebook and Instagram Shops. But, on the other hand, Google is doing everything to ensure that it maintains its stake in the online shopping space.

Businesses in these categories interested in Local Services should be checking the form to see if their area is currently available for onboarding!
LSA advertisers must meet a minimum review score (3 stars or higher) and be Google Guaranteed or Google Screened. Both of them involve licence and background checks.
