2. Business Leads


Q: How many leads should I expect?

A: The number of leads that you will receive depends on the profile(s) that you have created. The greater your geographic scope and the number of services that you offer in your profile(s), the more likely it is that you will receive a large number of leads. You can consult with one of our dedicated Account Managers for advice on profiles and estimated lead flow.

Q: How many companies receive the same lead?

A: Search engines deliver a sea of companies for buyers to choose from and other lead generation companies sell their leads to 6, 8 or even an unlimited number of suppliers. OneEntry guarantees that it will send a lead to no more than 4 other companies. This is done to provide buyers with a small selection of options.

Q: How can I be sure that I will only receive leads that are relevant to my business?

A: You will only receive leads that are relevant to your business because you choose the details of which leads you will receive. By creating profiles that define your business, you are essentially picking and choosing which leads you want, based on the criteria that you submit.

Q: How do I receive the leads?

A: Once the lead is matched to your profile, it is forwarded directly to you via the email address you provide for your account. A copy of each lead is also kept in your personal account under the Leads tab in your online account.

Q: What does a lead look like?

A: Our leads provide the maximum amount of information for our service providers. You can see an example of a lead once you are logged in to your personal online account.

4. Markets & Profiles


Q: What is a market?

A: Markets are used for your free listing in our directories.; you can choose up to 5 markets. They also control the kinds of profiles you can create, so you should select markets before profiles. For example, if you select the Marketing Services market, then you can create a profile for telemarketing or call center services. To view a full list of our markets, visit our Industries or Categories pages, or contact an Account Manager.

Q: What are profiles?

A: A profile reflects the type of service in a geographical area that you can provide to buyers and in turn, determines which leads you will receive from us. You specify your profiles in your online account, and then we forward you leads that match them. The profile includes the business area(s) you are interested in (moving, cargo, storage, etc.) and the countries or regions you service.

Q: Can I change my profile when I expand or limit my business area?

A: Changes can be made to your profile provided that you contact us directly. Please note that any changes that you make can impact the number of requests that you receive. Larger profiles may yield a greater number of leads, while smaller profiles may generate less.

Q: How long does it take for changes to take effect?

A: Changes to profiles are reflected by the end of the next business day.


5. Prices & Billing


Q: How much does it cost?

A: There are no commission charges, taxes or annual fees; we charge a simple flat fee per lead. The price we charge for each lead depends on the type of lead received. To see the prices of your leads, go to the Prices section of your account.

Q: What is your refund/credit policy?

A: Should you receive a lead in duplicate or with incorrect email and telephone details, OneEntry will issue a credit for the full price of the lead, provided that you report the problem to us within three days of receiving the lead. OneEntry reserves the right to refuse a credit, should it be determined that one is not warranted.

Auto: Auto billing is the method of payment that ensures a regular flow of leads is sent to you via email. You also receive a 1USD, 1EUR or 1GBP discount per lead when you are on auto billing.
