Clicking the green Invitebutton opens a popup with a template for the invite mail. You can use the sample text or add your own text to personalize the invite. The same invite can be sent to multiple email addresses at one time. After sending the invite, a table will be appear in the Invites section showing the status of everyone you have invited. You can click the Remind button to send another invite.
Inviting contacts contributes to the Good Market community. If your contact clicks the link in your invite email and signs up, you will receive 1 point. If they are later approved as a Good Market vendor, you will receive an additional 10 points. Vendors are able to use points to boost their content to the top.
If a new vendor is one of your customers or suppliers, make sure to add them to your network. You can do this under the Invites section or through the Customer and Supplier sections of the application form. Partnering with other Good Market vendors benefits the community and can increase your "thumbs-up" vendor level.
