Navigating the Marketplace
You have added all of the activities to your account, have gone through the initial setup for the Channel Manager, and you are ready to find partners to resell your activities.
Start by navigating to the Marketplace by clicking on the icon located on the left-hand side navigation, and select the Marketplace option.
The Marketplace is sectioned in two parts, Activities and Partners.
Within this section agents, affiliates and even other suppliers will be able to find activities that they would be willing to resell.
To get a detailed view of the activity click on the Details button, and the following information will be displayed:
- Name of the activity,
- All available activities from the supplier,
- Description of the activity,
- Agency name, location, and address,
- Agency website and email,
- The number of available activities.
NOTE: To show of your activities in the best way possible, make sure you are using a high-quality image, have a detailed description for your activities, and that you fill in all the information within the General Information section located under Settings so that possible resellers have a good overview of the activity and your company.
Once a request has been submitted, an email will be sent with the partnership request, and the invite will be shown under the My Partners sections as well, under the pending invites.
Within this section, you will be able to find agents, affiliates, and suppliers that have an Orioly account, and you will be able to send them a partnership request.
To view details and send the invite/request click on the icon located next to the agency name. Once you have opened up the detailed view of the agency you will see:
- Their name, location, and address,
- Website and email addresses,
- Number of available activities
NOTE: If the agency you are sending the invite to has the account type of agent or affiliate you will only see the Invite user to be your agent button, otherwise you will see the option to send an agent request by using the Send request to be the user’s agent button if your primary account is the supplier account.
As with the invites in the Activites section, invites/requests sent through the Partners section will be sent via email, and the invites/requests will be visible through the My Partners section as well.
