Most customers wish to evaluate a data sample before committing to a purchase. Below are a few ways to offer data for evaluation purposes.
Create a historical archive.
Upload it as a file via UI to a catalog - see the Knowledge Base documentation.
Attach this catalog to your listing and enable an evaluation subscription.
Specify in the subscription description that it grants access to a limited dataset (for example, limited geographical coverage or historical data for a specific time frame).
Once the Marketplace Consumer activates an evaluation subscription, you'll receive a notification with their name, email address, company name for a follow-up. You can deactivate this subscription any time.
You can enable a "Contact Us" subscription simultaneously with the evaluation one to allow prospects to reach out to you in a fast and easy way.
Recommendations on terms and conditions (T&Cs):
Some Marketplace Providers use succinct T&Cs for evaluation subscriptions, as short as one page. You can look for examples among public listings.
Create a data sample or historical archive.
Upload it as a resource (supporting material) to the listing.
Resource files are accessible to all Marketplace-registered customers, and you as a Marketplace Provider won't be notified if anyone downloads the file. It is thus recommended to create a sample catalog (see evaluation subscription above), attach an evaluation subscription, and upload a very small sample into resources to only give a taste of your data before prospects activate the evaluation subscription.
To showcase dynamic data in real time:
Create a catalog.
Upload data for a fraction of your geographical coverage (for example, a country or region).
This way of offering data for evaluation is usually advisable:
As step 2 after you have exhausted one or both ways above.
