We are excited to announce USARK Membership Badges for sellers. These new Store Badges recognize USARK members with 100% authenticity, because our data is synced directly from the USARK database each night.
For our system to recognize your membership, ensure that you have added to your MorphMarket account (under User Settings) the same email address which you used to purchase your USARK membership. This email does not have to be set to your primary, but it does have to be verified.
Membership in the US Association of Reptile Keepers is critical to our industry. USARK fights against powerful lobby groups who want to take away your rights to responsibly keep reptiles and amphibians.
We know that there are people who have quietly supported USARK for many years. This is admirable, but please consider how publicly supporting USARK is even better. These badges are not just about you -- they are about our unity behind USARK. Your display of membership will help raise awareness about the importance of supporting this organization, because others will see that you are supporting. This compounds your contributions.
We also know that many have provided support to USARK in ways other than membership. Please consider that USARK needs not only financial support, but also membership numbers. Numbers reflect the amount of individual support behind USARK in a way that is similar to names on a petition. The groups that we are up against are massive, so we need to make every one of our votes count.
To recognize your contributions, USARK is willing to grant credit for items donated to USARK auctions within the past year towards an annual membership. To apply contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you do not have a membership and wish to support USARK, please visit usark.org. Bronze memberships are only $40/year.
Badges are updated nightly, so please allow a day for changes to take effect.
In the future, we plan to add User Badges which will include a similar badge to recognize support from Buyers.
