Top Store is the premium status of stores on Joom platform. Based on high performance metrics, it has become a guarantee of growing purchase rate and customers' instant trust. Top Store will be benefited exclusively by the privileges that we provide to our merchants of high merit.
Therefore, we highly recommend you to do your best to meet the requirements, follow all the platform rules, continue to sell your products on Joom and fulfill all the orders. Our manager will contact you to become our Joom Top Store!💪

Some other advantages:
- The Top store status is highlighted in the product page, so that it could leave an impression on the customers and boost the whole store’s sales.
|Top Store product page
- Only Top Store products will be shown in the Similar Items section of products of other top store product, so your products will be automatically recommended to the customers who are looking for products of high quality;
- Once products from your Top store receive at least 10 orders and 5 reviews overall (without any order cancellations and with high average rating), the tier of all active products from the same store will be automatically raised.
We removed the “Stores” tab from the main screen because we’re optimizing the main screen to lead more traffic to the good products. This modification won’t lead to significant changes in traffic, but you may see the decrease in purchases precisely from the “Stores” page.
How to become a Top Store?
Any regular store has the opportunity to become a Top Store, if all the requirements stated down below are met. Joom category managers manually select the qualified stores and give out the status.
⚠️ PLEASE NOTE: Even though your store meets all the requirements, it still might not receive the Top store status, as other different criteria such as competitors in your products’ categories, overall market situation, etc are taken into account in the decision.
The Top Store status is not given once and for all. Joom reserves the right to withdraw the Top Store status from the store, if it no longer meets the requirements.
Have the correct store specialisation selected based on the products you sell;
⚠️ REMINDER: Currently, stores belonging to the specialisation "Products for Adults" cannot apply to become a Top Store.
