A marketplace listing is a dedicated page to showcase a vendor or supplier’s offerings. Please note we do not showcase any contact information including: website, social media links, emails or phone numbers. You must supply as many marketing assets as possible! Please also note that we will only showcase a way to connect via an affiliate link or private lead gen form on the BLLA website.

We allow all credit cards via our payment processor, Stripe. We also offer wire transfer options. We kindly ask to use one of these payment methods.

If you prefer to wait on partnering with the association (which includes a marketplace listing), you can always begin by purchasing a marketplace listing for $795 annually. This includes a dedicated page on the marketplace. Please note it is required to give BLLA members a special offer (either a pilot program or a discount) and provide BLLA an affiliate link to collect referral fees. If you do not have an affiliate link software, we can create a lead gen form on our website; however, we prefer an affiliate link as it is in the best interest of all parties involved (we can provide recommendations of great software).
