How does the vendor rating system work?

Circaphiles.com members may rate vendors based upon their experience within the past 12 months. Circaphiles members can submit ratings that are either anonymous or identifiable by member name. We will provide guidelines, and will advise members to keep ratings constructive. For example, “Please limit your review to an overall company review—NOT staff or specific employee(s).” Members will be asked to provide:

  1. A brief description of the project.
  2. A brief summary elaborating on the project and experience.
  3. 1-5 (1= poor to 5=outstanding) star ratings for: 
  • Product or service quality
  • Customer service
  • Ability to meet deadlines

Submitted ratings will be reviewed by our team to ensure content is constructive and productive. Circaphiles reserves the right to deny or remove a review, including without limitation if it is malicious or not constructive.

What If I get unsatisfactory ratings or feedback?

Submitted ratings will be reviewed by our team to ensure content is constructive and productive. Circaphiles reserves the right to deny or remove a review, including without limitation if it is malicious or not constructive. At any time, you can choose to have your listing from the Circaphiles Vendor Directory removed. If your company is receiving consistently low ratings, or we otherwise find it appropriate to do so, we reserve the right to remove your listing from our directory.

Can I change or edit my vendor listing?

Upon your request, Circaphiles will provide a screen shot of your listing. Once per year, and at your request, Circaphiles will modify your listing to ensure it accurately describes new or modified products or services you offer. There may be a small administrative fee to change your listing.

If I join as a vendor partner, will you sell my products?

No. Your company will be listed as a preferred, to-the-trade vendor. When a member sees your listing on circaphiles.com, they can click a link that leads to your company website to view products. Circaphiles is not involved in the communication, quoting, sale or delivery/installation process.  And we do not take commissions on sales.

Will this conflict with my showroom representation?

No, we are not a selling platform. Your listing includes your website link so they will be directed there to pursue purchasing on your site or contact your respective showroom.
