Inviting brands to your marketplace is a fast and easy process, which allows you to increase the marketplace's offer in no time.

Depending on whether you are just setting up your marketplace or it's already live, there are two ways to send an invitation to a brand directly from the marketplace dashboard. Additionally, you or your marketplace team can always resend the invite or share an invitation link via other communication tools.

Invite brands via the Getting Started page.

  1. Go to Getting Started section in the top navigation bar.

  2. Click on the Add Products section. It will expand.

  3. Click Invite Partner button.

  4. An Invite Partner popup will appear.

  5. Fill in and adjust the following fields with the correct data
    Company or brand name
    Please make sure to add the correct name of the brand.
    Contact person name
    It's optional, but adding a name to an email makes it always more personal.
    Email address to which the invitation will be sent. Once the brand accepts your invitation, an account in Vendo will be created with this email. It will be also visible as a main contact email in the brand profile on the marketplace dashboard.
    This is the text that will be sent to an invited brand via email. You can send the 'ready-to=-use' Vendo invitation text or customize the invitation message per your preferences.
    Commission Rate
    This is the proposed percentage of the invited brand sales, which your marketplace receives as a commission. By default it is set to 20% - feel free to adjust it.
