Any buyer can sign up for free to join the SevenFifty marketplace from the SevenFifty homepage, by clicking the "Join Free" button under the Buyer sections, as pictured here:
You can also refer a buyer, and they will receive an email directing them to sign up. You can find the "Refer a Buyer" option in the drop-down menu in the top-right corner of the page, after you've logged in, as pictured here:
When a buyer signs up, they'll go through the following application process:
The user is prompted to create a “Buyer” account and provide their relevant login credentials.
On the next page the buyer is prompted to choose the state that they work in. Once they've chosen their state, they can search for their establishment by license number, city or zip code.If their license doesn't appear on a search, they'll see a link appear that says "Can't find your establishment?" Clicking that link will allow them to proceed through the application process, and will add their establishment to the SevenFifty database once their account is approved.
If a buyer was able to find their establishment during a search, the establishment's information will automatically appear in the fields on the next page page. If not, they'll be asked to provide information like their establishment's DBA, address, and whether or not they operate on- or off-premise.
During this phase, they'll be prompted to upload an image of their liquor license. Uploading a license during the application process is the fastest, easiest way for our staff to approve the buyer's account.
As soon as they've completed registration, the new buyer user will be able to start browsing the marketplace, although they won't have the ability to see everything on the market (like pricing) or place orders until their account is approved by SevenFifty staff. The screening process usually takes 1-2 business days; if a staff member needs additional information before approving the account, they'll reach out via the email address associated with the account.
If you know of a buyer that is opening a new retail store, bar or restaurant and have yet to receive their license, you can have them contact support.
