Question: Vietnam business visa or tourist one

I applied for a 3 month multiple entry tourist visa for Vietnam through your website, due to enter Vietnam this Saturday and have just noticed I have been granted a visa for business. Will this matter? Because I don’t intended to conduct any business. Also I have heard that multiple 3 month entry visas are no longer valid. Is this true?
