Identifying clients for trial or purchase

About identifying clients for trial or purchase

Red Hat Marketplace requires all users to identify themselves by registering for a client account before they can complete a trial registration or purchase a product. All Red Hat Marketplace accounts require email address validation, and for most clients we require they provide a credit card (or a Purchase Order if they have done business with IBM previously). For select email domains (Fortune 100) we only validate the email address. All users will be validated for export compliance (see the Export section).

Business-to-business transactions

Red Hat Marketplace will generally be restricted to Business-to-Business (B2B) transactions. In many countries this means a VAT number will be required for a client to register for a Red Hat Marketplace account. Where there are no tax implications, RHM will not limit transactions to B2B.
