The Marketplace is the home page of the site and includes profiles and marketplace listings from Good Market Approved community members. You can return to it by clicking the stall icon in the bottom menu or by clicking the Good Market logo at the top of the page. No login is required to explore the Marketplace.
This section covers how to change between grid, list, and map view, search by keyword, filter by location, sector, focus, and certification, and how to explore marketplace listings.
The home page opens in grid view. If you want more details on the community members, you can switch to list view. If you want to see their locations, you can switch to map view.
If you search for a keyword or name, the search results will show in list view, but you can switch to grid view or map view at any time.
Use the search bar at the top of the Marketplace home page and profile pages to search by keyword or enterprise name.
Search is powered by Algolia and includes instant search, autocomplete, typo tolerance, synonyms, and global language support.
Clicking enter or the search icon shows all relevant results. Selecting an enterprise’s name from autocomplete takes you directly to their profile page.
The location search bar filters results by location and is based on Google Maps locations. Select a country, state or province, or city from the drop down list to filter by location. Results can be seen in grid, list, or map view.
Click the icons above the map to find Good Market approved cafes, restaurants, hotels, retail outlets, wellness centers, coworking spaces, and organic farms in a particular area.
On desktop computers, the filter box is always open on the left side of the screen. On mobile phones, you can click the blue Filter button to open the filter box.
The homepage opens to show only the Profiles of Good Market community members. Profiles can be filtered by Sectors, by Focus, and by Certification.
If Marketplace is selected, different filter options appear in the filter box. (See below.) These filter options will be expanded over time.
When filters are selected, the Filter button becomes dark blue. Filters can be deselected or you can click Clear Filters to remove all of the filters at one time.
All Good Market Approved enterprises are now able to add products, services, events, media, places, fundraising campaigns, job vacancies, volunteer opportunities, and anything else they’d like to share to the community marketplace for free.
If Marketplace is selected at the top of the page, new filter options appear. These filter options will be expanded and improved over time. In grid view, click the image to open the marketplace listing in a new tab. In list view, click More to browse listings without having to leave the marketplace.
All Good Market Approved community members have a public profile page that’s accessible through the Marketplace. The profile page is free and includes contact details, links, profile photos, a description paragraph, marketplace listings, feedback from other community members, people and planet info, and map locations. The profile page is generated based on the information in the application form.
In the future, it will be possible to send a direct message through the Good Market site. For now, the site makes it easier to find contact details and links for Good Market approved enterprises.
To contact an enterprise, click the green Contact button under their name. This will open a pop-up with space to send a chat message, phone number, email address, and any available links.
Community members tend to actively update their contact details on the Good Market site. If you have any difficulty reaching a enterprise through their profile page contacts, please get in touch with the Good Market team.
If you have experience with a Good Market community member, please take a moment to leave feedback on their profile page.
To leave feedback, start writing in the text field below the description paragraph. Click the camera icon to add an image. Click the X to cancel. Click the ✓ to publish.
Editing or Deleting Feedback
You can edit or delete the feedback that you personally leave on the site. Click the top right corner of your post to open the drop-down menu. Select Edit or Delete. If you see feedback from someone else that you think should be deleted, please flag it.
The purpose of the Good Market platform is to help all community members learn, improve, and work together to create a better world. If you see feedback that does not meet Good Market Community Guidelines, please contribute to the community by clicking the flag icon and flagging it for review.
Replying to Feedback
If someone leaves feedback on your profile page, you will receive an email notification. You can visit your profile page to reply. You can also flag the feedback if it does not meet Community Guidelines.
If you’d like to show your support for a Good Market community member and see updates, click the heart icon on their profile page to follow them. They will receive an email notification.
When you follow a Good Market community member, any offers or opportunities they add to the community marketplace will appear in your feed under Favorites. This could include products, services, events, media, places, fundraising campaigns, job vacancies, volunteer opportunities, etc.
Community member can raise their level by:
Good Market community members are able to edit their form and re-publish their profile page at any time. If the updates change their Good Market Level, it triggers a review.
The People & Planet section of the profile page shows all of the claims that were made in the application form. If you have evidence of a false claim, you can flag the profile and start a review process.
The purpose of the bar chart is to show the relative focus on different types of stakeholders: Customers, Workers, Suppliers, Community and the Environment. It’s based on how the application form is filled and uses the same algorithm as the Good Market level.
Each Good Market community member has its own story and the bar charts will differ accordingly. No enterprise is expected to focus equally on all categories of stakeholders.
Flagging starts a review process. If it is found that an organization intentionally made a false claim, they may lose their Good Market Approved status.
When you click the flag icon, it will take you to new page. Select which specific claims you think are false and provide a written explanation for each one. Supporting evidence is encouraged. Photos, documents, and other files can be uploaded before submitting.
In order to protect the identity of workers, suppliers, service providers, and customers, the flagging process is anonymous. A Good Market team member may contact you by email to request additional information or provide an update on the review.
Marketplace listings are anything you have to share. They do not need to involve money. If you have an marketplace listing that involves payment, there are currently two ways to buy and sell through the marketplace:
Social Commerce: Use chat to organize payment through a payment link, bank transfer, or payment on delivery.
Redirects: Include a link and redirect people to an external site where you take payments. This can be your own website, an ecommerce site, a booking engine, etc.
