Marketplace can only cater for payments in NZ dollars. We expect to cater for listing and selling services in other currencies in the near future.
Competing for business
Although listing your services on Marketplace allows you to offer your services directly to government agencies that require such services, be aware that joining Marketplace does not guarantee you any business — you still have to compete for value with other suppliers of the same services or products.
