Why get certified?
Mergado is a useful tool for managing product catalogs for comparison shopping sites and marketplaces. With Mergado, you will expand the portfolio of services you can offer to customers. Setting up and controlling Mergada is not complicated - if you already use some marketing tools, it will not be a problem for you.
For online stores that want to use the services of a marketing agency or a freelancer, the certificate is a sign of quality and experience working with Mergado. According to the level of professionalism of using Mergado, we have created three categories - gold, silver, and bronze. Each of them requires the fulfillment of certain conditions and accordingly brings several benefits.
To become a Mergado certified partner or certified agency you need to:
- know Mergado and actively use it for at least 1 year,
- manage at least 2 online stores in Mergado,
- complete the free online 'Get started with Mergado' webinar
- pass an online test
Certification is tied directly to the agency. If it meets all the conditions and employs at least one person who has undergone all the necessary training and successfully passed the certification test, the agency will receive a badge.
The employees themselves will receive a Certified Specialist badge, which does not distinguish between Gold / Silver / Bronze.
We approach the certification of freelancers in the same way as agencies. If you are a freelancer who manages online stores yourself and at the same time you charge hours for working for agencies, you have the choice of whether you want to appear for yourself or an agency.
- Changes to the certification system will take effect on March 1, 2022. Until then, we recommend that you verify all aspects that you must meet. During February, we will start sending new badges and other materials to all partners.
- Are you interested in which category you currently belong to, or are you not sure what you need to meet? Contact us.
- Do you want to get certified earlier? Until 31 December 2021, we follow the old system, so add your old badge for now. From January 2022, please wait for new materials to be sent.
What you need to look after meeting the certification conditions
- You must have a new badge on the website with a link to your profile on the Mergado website.
- You must renew your certification every two years according to the current conditions on the website.
In which cases can the certification be transferred
- If a specialist who solely has all the necessary training and meets other certification conditions (e. g. Gold) leaves your agency, you must train a new employee so that the agency does not fall into a lower category.
- If a specialist who has completed all the training passes to an agency that uses the paid application, this agency is entitled to move to the Gold Category. You must inform us of these changes promptly.
