USERS

Is there a BUD for my area?
If we have at least ONE client in an area, BUD will show this area on the homepage.  As new clients are added, the number of areas covered by BUD will increase.


How do I customise BUD?

Tap the cogs icon to configure BUD to your preferences.  You can choose how your listings are ordered, and sign up to private clubs.


BUD listings can be sorted alphabetically or based on nearness to the centre of the BUD region.  If your device supports GPS, listings can be shown based on their distance from your current position.




How do I add a private club to my listings?

If you've found a BUD code on a private club's website or noticeboard, simply type their code and ID into the private clubs area and select Add.


You will now be able to see any clubs with that code and ID.


When BUD has shown the required club it will confirm your code.




How do I add a bookmark to my homescreen?


Using an iOS device to add a website bookmark to the home screen is very simple.  Click the icon that looks like a box with an arrow jumping out of it (this also lets you tweet, print or mail the page you're on).  Click 'Add to Home Screen'.

On Android there are a few different ways to achieve this. Thanks to philwilson.org for both of these methods:
  • Bookmark the page you want to add to a home screen
  • Go to the home screen you want to add the link/bookmark to
  • Long-press in an empty space to bring up the "Add to Home Screen" menu
  • Select "Shortcuts"
  • Select "Bookmark"
  • Choose the bookmark you’ve just created

Depending on your device and version of Android, this may work:

  • Bookmark the page you want to add to a home screen
  • Open the browser "bookmarks" screen
  • Long-press the bookmark you want
  • Select "Add to Home screen"

On an HTC, even though the method's quite simple, it's something that can easily be missed because of the number of widget options and menus available.
  • Go to the page to you want to add
  • Press Menu > Add Bookmark
  • Give it a name and make sure the location is right
  • Press Done
  • Press the Home button to return to the homescreen
  • Press "+" or long-press an empty space where you want to add the shortcut
  • Select Shortcut from the Add to Home menu
  • Select Bookmark
  • Select the Bookmark you want to add
  • Done! The shortcut should now be on your homescreen

In Internet Explorer on your PC or laptop it's really easy.
  • Go to the page to you want to add
  • Right-click on a blank bit of the page
  • Select 'Create Shortcut'
  • Select 'Yes'
  • Now you can go to your desktop and move the icon to a convenient position

In Firefox on your PC or laptop it's also easy.
  • Go to the page to you want to add
  • Resize the Firefox window so you can see both your computer's desktop and the Firefox window on the same screen
  • Click the icon on the left of the Location bar, i.e. where the web address (URL) is shown
  • While still holding the mouse button down, move the pointer to the desktop, then release the mouse button
  • Now you can go to your desktop and move the icon to a convenient position

In Google Chrome:
  • Click the "Customise and control Google Chrome" button:
  • Select "Tools > Create Application shortcuts".
  • A small dialog shall open.
  • Select your options and click on the "Create" button.


Does BUD use cookies?
Yes, but only to store your user-interface preferences.  No personal details are stored or shared with anyone.


CLIENTS

How do I add my business to BUD?
We will need an admin contact name, email address, business name, and business postal address.  After you have registered you will be able to fully customise your listing. Click HERE to register.


Can you help me add a logo?
Yes. After you have registered your listing, you will be able to upload a business logo.  Alternatively you can reply to your welcome email enclosing a photo or image.  Suitable photos should include a portion for us to use as your thumbnail.



BUD doesn't cover my area. Can I still apply?
Yes you can.  In fact, you'll be the first business in your area, so you'll have BUD all to yourself!


How much does it cost?
A single BUD listing for a single area costs £30 per year.  Listing your business in two areas counts as two listings.  If you would like to list your business in many regions, please contact us as detailed below under "I own a large chain..."


What methods of payment do you accept?
Payments are processed by Paypal, who accept Paypal transactions and most major credit and debit cards, including MasterCard, Visa, American Express.
You are not required to have a Paypal account.
We accept most major credit and debit cards


Is it secure to give my credit card details over the internet?
Paypal uses industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to provide encryption of personal information such as your name, address and credit card details.  In this way, information passed between your computer and us cannot be read in the unlikely event of someone intercepting it.


I own a large chain - can I get a bulk deal?
Yes you can.  To discuss a bespoke payment arrangement, click HERE to access our contact page.
