Registration and Login
What do I do if the Market registration isn't accepting my market address?
The market address field is regulated by Google’s mapping API – sometimes, it won’t accept an address as put in by the user. in those instances, we recommend that users delete the entire address, and then type just the street number, and perhaps the first couple letters of the street. At this point, the field should auto-populate a drop-down of options for this address and similar. If you see your address listed in the results, click on it. If there are too many results, continue to add one or two letters to the street name until your address shows up. Click on it to save the address.
What do I do if my vendor doesn't have an email address?
In the case where a vendor doesn’t have an email address, we recommend creating one for them and keeping a record of it for your tracking purposes. Additionally, if you have Amish vendors, they may have a ‘man of business’ of whom their email may be used.
