How do buyer whitelists and blacklists work?

Control which suppliers you want to purchase data from within a given Buy Order


Narrative's Data Streaming Platform consists of buyers & sellers of data who are part of an open marketplace. Both parties have control of who they can sell to and buy from. Review below the steps needed to create whitelists or blacklists as a seller. 

Set your Sellers

Within a Buy Order are several components, one being the ability to choose which suppliers you want to purchase data from. 

After you have selected your Data Package Type, the next step is to grant permission to all or a subset of suppliers. Both Whitelists & Blacklists can contain multiple companies.


No restriction - this Buy Order can transact against all suppliers in the Marketplace that meet its constraints

Whitelist - this Buy Order can only transact on Narrative data

Blacklist - this Buy Order cannot transact on Narrative Data
