ACID Marketplace is an optional addition to the ACID Design Databank. An ONLINE safer trading platform where design buyers can register to view the latest designs created by ACID Members. Marketplace supports also, with a tracking system, developed from IP Tracker! So you can see, recorded on your personal online profile, who has viewed your designs online.
Why? We wanted to offer ACID members an exciting additional benefit to the Design Databank, by creating a safer online promotional platform – a positive conduit between designers and design buyers where members can exhibit existing and new products and prospective design buyers can view! A bit like your own permanent exhibition zone, but at a fraction of the price of an exhibition stand – and you control who visits the stand! With a separate upload system in your My Designs area you can decide independently which files to store on the Design Databank and which images to display to design buyers on Marketplace.
And now ACID members have a fantastic new benefit – Member to Member Discount – the opportunity to offer other members of the ACID Community discounts on your designs and products! Add the logo to your upload with a simple tick box and offer a discount of your choice for as long as you wish – you can change it at any time!
10 FREE EXHIBITION SPACES – WITH NO UPLOAD CHARGE!
What does this mean? Each member receives 10 free upload ‘Exhibition’ spaces where images can be uploaded to each online Exhibition space and displayed for promotion and viewing by Design Buyers. These uploads are not locked down like the Design Databank system so you can alter descriptions, change images ore even delete the whole submission if you wish to – and reuse it. There is also no upload charge for using ACID Marketplace, just for the IP Databank. However, we would always advise that new designs are uploaded to the IP Databank first for IP support, as Marketplace uploads will be viewed instantly.
