Why is it necessary to get my Bento account approved?
Bento's got your back when it comes to ensuring a safe and consistent experience on our marketing platform!
As a leading provider in the industry, we take pride in maintaining a high level of email deliverability and ensuring that only legitimate businesses are allowed to use its platform.
One of the ways we do that is by going old school and manually reviewing every single account application that comes our way. That means a real-life human takes a look at your info to make sure you're the real deal and not a spammer or scam artist.
Why do we do this, you might ask?
Well, it's all about keeping the reputation of our network (our IP addresses, mostly) healthy and respected by the ISPs like Gmail and Outlook. We want to make sure that the businesses using our platform are all above-board and playing by the rules.
As a result, this leads to WAY better engagement with your emails.
So, when you're waiting for your account to get approved, just know that we are doing this to make sure your business thrives on our platform.
Once you're in, you can rest easy knowing that you're part of a community of like-minded folks who are all about building their businesses in a safe and supportive space.
To be approved for a Bento account, businesses must meet several criteria.
By requiring businesses to meet these criteria, we are able to maintain a high level of trust among our customers and ensure that our platform is used only for legitimate and good purposes.
In cases where a new business does not meet all of the criteria, we will reach out and ask you to provide additional proof.
If you're a startup and new to business, don't worry. We'll reach out and talk you through the process to get you approved. We understand that you may not have all your pages up yet.
To further assist new customers in getting started with Bento, we also offer a demo with our founder, Jesse.
This allows businesses to learn more about how the platform works and how it can best be used to meet their specific needs. Often, after meeting face to face, we will approve you straight away.
