How to join
You can sign up to the Marketplace anytime. Complete your seller profile by adding your business details and all required information. This includes selecting any services you want to offer, maximum daily rates, case studies, references and supporting documentation. You will be asked to accept the Master Agreement which will form the basis of any contracts you may be awarded.
Once you submit your application
We will review your information to check you are a legitimate business. We aim to review and assess applications within two weeks but this may take longer if we receive many applications at the same time or if your information is missing or misspelt and we need to liaise with you to fix.
If we approve your application, your profile will be listed in the seller catalogue. This includes your name, business summary, the services you offer, and any badges that identify your unique characteristics. Only registered buyers will be able to see and search for more detailed information about you.
