Mercardo provides marketing and sales lead generation for specific business service areas.
Our services are categorized by indexes where each index represents a specific individual business service. An index may further be categorized by region or other sub category criteria.
A supplier is a company or entity which provides one or more supplier services, where a supplier service is defined as one of our indexes.
By mutual agreement a supplier may sign up to one or more of our indexes.
Mercardo will market individual indexes and generate qualified leads relating to a specific index. Mercardo will do use its best efforts to qualify the lead to ensure its relevancy.
Mercardo may provide the following services for its indexes:
Supplier promotion web space: This will include the Suppliers logo, a description of themselves and their services, testimonials and client case studies. This information may be presented in a summary format.
Click-on: the ability for a web user to view all of the supplier promotional information.
Click-through: the ability for a web user to view the suppliers website.
Qualified lead: the supplier will receive details of a buyer who requires a specific service and who has been qualified by Mercardo. Mercardo may provide the facility where the buyer can select which supplier receives the lead details.
There will be a charge for the Mercardo services listed above. Each type of service maybe charged at different rates.
The specific services available may vary by index i.e. not all services are available on all indexes.
The specific charges for each service will vary by index i.e. the service charge could be different on different indexes.
The individual services which are provided to a supplier will depend on the specific index to which the supplier has signed up to.
Upon signing up, a supplier will be presented with details of the indexes, services and service charges to which they are signing up to; on the 'Services and Charges' form displayed during the sign up process.
From time to time, the supplier may wish to, and Mercardo may agree to, being allocated to additional indexes and receiving the services from that index at the appropriate charge rate for the services.
From time to time we may make available promotional offers to suppliers. If this includes a free-trial upon supplier sign-up, we will provide leads for the trial-period at the completion of which the supplier has the option to terminate the services by email to email@example.com
during the trial period. Should the supplier not do so, the index services supplied during the free-trial period will be charged at the on-going rate and the supplier will continue to receive index services.
Leads will be provided to the supplier during the current week and will be invoiced at the end of the same week. The invoice will be sent to the supplier electronically to their account contact email address. Mercardo will process a credit card or debit card payment for the invoiced amount four working days after the invoice has been sent to the supplier. As part of signing up the supplier agrees to provide payment via credit or debit card.
During the period between invoice notification and ten days afterwards, the supplier should raise any account queries which they may have. Where an account query has been raised we will endeavour to resolve the query as quickly as possible. If the account query has not been resolved by the automatic payment date, the payment for the disputed amount will not be collected.
Where supplier promotional material is displayed, the supplier must provide the relevant promotional material. Mercardo reserves full editorial rights over the content which is actually displayed.
Mercardo will not own any supplier branding.
Consistent with Mercardo marketing remit we have full world wide rights to publish and promote the supplier and the supplier promotional material as deemed necessary.
