I would rather give them NO STARS at all! I signed up for this online marketplace about 8 weeks ago and heard nothing. I kept checking back and inquiring if my credential were ready? I heard nothing from them. The last time I checked back there was a handbook up and I appreciated that. It gave pricing, which is $650USD per month! No free trial, you must pay (according to the handbook) before credentials are given. I wish they had told me this before I waited for all this time!
