Cratejoy is excited to launch The Preferred Seller Program. This new and inspiring program celebrates and awards Cratejoy Sellers who exhibit exemplary customer service and marketplace listing quality.
At Cratejoy we understand a major appeal for new and returning customers is an impeccable customer experience. That’s why we take pride in our customer service and a compelling, high quality marketplace. To continue to drive conversion and sales through our marketplace, the Cratejoy Team aims to work alongside our Sellers to not only build that notoriety but maintain it, as well. That’s where accountability and recognition comes in.
As business owners and operators, you all know accountability is a cornerstone to successfully scale, adopt, and grow up and to the right. Accountability is an opportunity to set and measure goals to recognize and celebrate your accomplishments.
