As a buyer on the Cratejoy Marketplace, you may notice some listings are tagged with specialized badges. This article will explain what badges you may see on the Cratejoy Marketplace and their specific meaning. 


Preferred Seller Badge

The preferred seller badge is designed to represent the seller's continued commitment to a stellar customer experience and listing quality. 

For a seller to be a preferred seller, there are a set of criteria they must meet, such as shipping and fulfillment speed as well as response rate.

Check out our blog post on introducing the preferred seller program for more information.

"Best Of" Badge

The "Best Of" badge is nominated and selected at the beginning of each year by Cratejoy. You may see "Best of 2021", "Best of 2022", "Best of 2023", or "Best New Box," etc. 

Ships in Time

During the holiday season, you may see a Ships in Time tag on marketplace listings. This denotes that the seller's cutoff for that particular product should ship in time to arrive before or on the holiday. 

Ships Fast

This tag means that the seller ships out their first boxes within 1-5 business days.

Free Shipping

This tag means that the seller offers free shipping on their listings. 

Low Stock

This tag means that the seller has a limited quantity of subscription boxes available, and they're almost sold out.
