Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Marketplace?

Marketplace has complete vendor information, including what they offer for sale, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, website addresses, pictures and videos.

The way most people find out about vendors on our site is through first reading an answer or story posted by a vendor.  Then, if the visitor to our site fwants to know more about a particular vendor, he or she may look at that vendor's personal profile.  Each vendor's profile tells the visitor a little more about the vendor as a person.  If the visitor feels comfortable with the vendor and may want to do business with him or her, we provide email addresses and links to the vendor's Marketplace listing.

The most reputable vendors love this transparency and way of doing business, because it helps them to distinguish themselves from their less reputable competition, and it encourages potential customers to have enough confidence to even call in the first place, as opposed to just having a listing somewhere else, where potential customers would not have this familiarity and confidence to call. The vendors with the best answers and Expat Stories will get the most “thumbs up”, while the less reputable vendors will go elsewhere, and try to get business by advertising just on their site or on other sites.  Isn't the Best Places way better than just looking at an advertisement and blindly calling or just not trusting anyone and not calling at all?

Combine all this information and you’ll have a really good idea of the character, integrity, and competence of the person you’re considering doing business with.  It’s for this reason that Best Places believes that there is no other site that has better vendors, and vendors more deserving of your consideration.

For vendors, the Marketplace is where you can gain the most from your well-earned reputation.  You're able to meet with, interact with, and promote to thousands of potential clients, each of whom is actively searching for answers in your area of expertise and each of whom already, in some way, knows you.  Everybody wins.

If you’d like to be a vendor, just register, or, if you'd rather, send an e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
