The fastest way to know whether you have joined the Brands Marketplace is to look at the top navigation menu. If the Brands option is not present, you must apply to join the marketplace.
Get started with your application by following these steps:
From the left navigation menu, select your Profile Icon → Join the Impact.com Marketplace.
Select Start my application.
Follow the steps through the application checklist.
Select Get Started.

Once you’ve completed all the steps on the checklist, select Submit your Marketplace application! from the checklist, and select Submit Application.
Once submitted, impact.com will review your application within two business days. Once approved, you'll be able to work with brands immediately.
If you have a pending, active, or declined direct relationship with a brand and a pending Brands Marketplace application, a Marketplace Status tab overlay should appear on the left navigation bar. You can select this tab to review the status of your application(s).
If your application is pending approval or has been rejected for any reason, a message will appear on this screen to inform you as such. If the application has been approved, this tab will disappear and you will have access to the marketplace. You will also receive an email informing you of application updates.
You will hear back from our team within 24-72 hours. While you wait, if you log out and log back into impact.com, you can select Brands from the top navigation menu to browse the Brands Marketplace. If you see any brands you might want to join after your application is approved, select the [Unchecked box] in the brand's panel to favorite the brand. You can then access your favorite brands again from the Favorites menu of the Marketplace screen.
