About BT Tradespace
Terminology we use to when making a BT Tradespace account live. You should be able to activate your acount at the end of the sign up journey. If you haven’t received an email with your link to activate your account, please get in touch.
The distinction between an account and a profile is that a user can have multiple profiles in one account with a single set of log in details. So you set up an account in the sign up journey. To edit your account details click on ‘Account details‘ in the top right hand corner of your screen.
BT Tradespace is a community of people who want to buy from, and sell to people they know and trust. It’s a place where you can showcase your business, plus it gives you the tools you need to bring your business to life so you can promote your products and services, grow your network of customers and contacts and sell effectively. And, it’s free to join. Find out more.…
When businesses initially sign up to BT Tradespace, they get a basic Tradespace. The basic Tradespace works like a listing and all businesses with a basic Tradespace can ‘enhance’ their Tradespace free by clicking on ‘My Tradespace’ at the top and clicking on the ‘Enhance your Tradespace’ link in the intro they see.
