Get Started Selling Your Products or Services on GJOA
Introductory Seller Subscription Offer => $0.00/Year. This offer expires 12/31/18.
1. Open Your Marketplace on GJOA => CLICK HERE TO REGISTER. Note, when you register as a seller/supplier, you will also automatically be registered as a buyer as well. Share this login information with your purchasing/procurement teams and they can use GJOA to find products or services and submit RFQ's / Orders to suppliers. As a seller, you will pay a yearly subscription fee of $249.95 (Introductory Offer of $0 Expires December 31, 2018) + 2.5% of any shopping cart instant purchases (if applicable, see below FAQ).
2. Completely fill out your company profile information with complete contact info -- this is how buyers can contact you directly and learn more about what your company offers. Be sure to discuss all you offer, not just the specific product(s) or service(s) you have added to your online catalog. Describe your company in detail. This company profile page is your identity on GJOA. Make it look GREAT!
3. Add Products (or services) => In order to have your company and products appear under your applicable industry category, you must add at least one product/service in each of the industry categories you represent (this becomes the page seen by the prospective buyers when they view your products). We would recommend adding products that are "fast movers" or standard type products that are sold as-is and not custom in any way. If you sell "bulk" type products (like fasteners, for example), list a few of your biggest sellers and indicate that you have a full line and to contact you directly so you can give them more information.
IMPORTANT: In order to utilize the GJOA Shopping Cart function, you must be a registered STRIPE.com user. You can create a STRIPE Account OR connect an existing account if you already have one by clicking on the STRIPE PAYMENT MANAGER in your Seller Marketplace Tools. If you elect to not use the Shopping Cart function (meaning no shopping cart will be seen by buyers when viewing your product page) then you will still have use of the SEND RFQ feature where buyers can still send you Requests for Quotes for your products. Note, there are no additional charges, over and above your yearly subscription, to accept unlimited RFQs from buyers.
Frequently Asked Questions:
I see GJOA just launched in July 2018. What is my incentive to get in early?
Great question. As a markerplace portal starting at ground zero we rely on your decision to join at this early stage. For this we are extending a reduced yearly subscription price of only $0. This is a $249.95 discount off our standard yearly subscription fee of $249.95 and we are confident that in a year's time GJOA will more than pay for itself as a generator of orders and RFQs for your business. As one of the first sellers registered on GJOA you will have less competition from other sellers offering similar products or services. This also gives you a headstart building up your reputation and postive customer reviews so you will always be ahead of companies that register after you. Ask yourself, "What is the cost of NOT joining?".
What does it cost to be a SELLER/SUPPLIER on GJOA?
GJOA charges SELLERS a low yearly subscription fee of $249.95 ($0.00 Introductory Offer Expires 12/31/18) + 2.5% commission to facilitate shopping cart purchases, if applicable.

Note, SELLERS must have a Stripe.com account connected in order to be eligible to use the Shopping Cart system and receive payments from BUYERS for shopping cart purchases. See Important paragraph above.
If your products aren't applicable to instant purchases (to large, to custom, to many products to list, etc.) then there are no additional charges/commissions above the yearly subscription fee. Buyers can send you RFQ's or contact you directly from the information you provide on your Company Profile Page. And, there is no need to have a Stripe.com account connected.

I just listed a product/service for sale. Why isn't it live on the site yet?
Once you add a product/service it goes through an approval process. Part of the benefit of using GJOA is all products are vetted to confirm validity and approved by a GJOA administrator. This approval process takes places throughout the day. Check back soon under MY PRODUCTS and you will see your product(s)/service(s) have been activated and are visible to buyers on GJOA.
