Business Network Creates a Marketplace
Any business network can create a totally free OpenEntry marketplace with free stores for its Members. However, the products on Premium stores will get priority placement on all category listings and search results. OpenEntry is also willing to co-manage the Marketplace for a split in the revenue.
Your Store Can Join Marketplaces
Any store can request to participate in any OpenEntry Marketplace and the Operator can determine conditions and grant permission. Any store can participate in multiple marketplaces simultaneously. An "Interface" maps the product pages of non-OpenEntry stores to the format of a Marketplace in order to participate.
