How to Enroll in Shortlister's
Top Vendor Program
About the Program
Shortlister has many featured snippets on Google listing Top Vendors in a wide range of product/service categories. Based on how Google views Shortlister’s authority, Google search prominently serves up Shortlister's website as a top result when an active employer buyer searches for the “top” or “best” vendors in a specific product category - resulting in hundreds of thousands of impressions for vendors featured on these lists.
Shortlister vendors can apply to be included on our Top Vendor lists. A wide range of criteria are evaluated when determining which organizations to include. That criteria includes, but is not limited to: how long the organization has been in business, number of clients, number of lives covered, Shortlister system data (win/loss ratio, RFP inclusions, etc.) and customer feedback (ratings/reviews).
Shortlister invests a substantial amount of time & energy to compile these lists and evaluate vendors that have applied, so a $50 fee per quarter is charged when a vendor is selected for a Top Vendor list. Note: This is not a $50 application fee because you may not be selected unless you meet the criteria, in which case no fee would apply.
How to Enroll
You are eligible as a Top Vendor for each product category that is included in your Matching Survey.
Here are the steps to enroll in Shortlister's Top Vendor program:

You can apply for as many “Top Vendor” lists as you’d like, but will only be charged the $50 fee per quarter for each list you are approved for. For example, if you apply for 6 lists and are approved for 5, your credit card will be billed $250 (5x$50) for that quarter.
