How to create marketplace contract terms (PRO)

This article explains what marketplace contract terms are, and how to create them

What are Marketplace contract terms?

Contract terms is the contract agreement between you and another company in the Bókun Marketplace. It is where you define the reseller commission and the products you want to sell on the marketplace.

Do I need to create contract terms before I can make a contract in the marketplace?

Yes, it is important to create contract terms before making a proposal on the marketplace.

Who can create contract terms?

Only suppliers can create contract terms. If you are a reseller and do not offer any products, you will not be able to create contract terms. Instead, resellers can go directly to the marketplace and send contract proposals to suppliers.

How many contract terms can I create?

You can create as many as you need. You can create default terms that you use for all your contracts, or you can create individual contract terms for each partner that you work with, where you can create special deals and set different commission for each one.
