A project will be featured for a fee of $30, paid by the Buyer who opens it. The project will be listed on the main page and will be more noticeable because of the following Featured Project graphic, which will appear beside the project anywhere it is seen by Suppliers:
What is the advantage for the Buyer?
Although it costs $30 to have a featured project, you will save 100% on the Supplierboard.com commission. There will be no charge based on a bid like with regular projects. Suppliers will not be charged a commission either, and they are normally charged $5 or 3% of the bid (whichever is greater). No commission means Suppliers will bid even lower on your project, resulting in lower costs for you in the long run!
Also, on Featured Projects, we will allow more activity which is normally against the Supplierboard.com Terms. Such as allowing Suppliers to bid an hourly service cost or anything else. So consider opening a featured project if you want Suppliers to bid in any unusual way.
What is the advantage for Suppliers?
Suppliers will NOT be charged a commission when they are chosen for a featured project! There is absolutely no cost for taking part in one of these projects.
