As a buyer, AgriDigital allows you to set a price that you are willing to pay for a particular grade of a commodity instead of creating an individual contract with each individual client. This works such that when you create/process a delivery, a contract is then automatically generated and saved with the price that you have set.
You can either post cash prices individually or in bulk.
In order to create your prices inidivually, please follow these simple steps:
- Click on the Prices feature in the Transaction Module, click on the green 'New Price' button at the top right of screen.
- Now, you can create a new cash price by filling the required fields, and pressing the green 'create price' button at the bottom of the page. This will be automatically transferred to a contract when a grower delivers their product as a cash delivery.
To set a quantity limit for the cash price, enter a value in the 'Quantity' field. Growers will be unable to deliver onto the cash price once the quantity for that cash price has been filled.
Users will be able to distinguish between sites which use AgriDigital as their management platform and therefore will display the Buyer's price to growers delivering to that site. NB: posting cash prices at sites that do not have an icon and therefore do not use AgriDigital, will not be notified if a cash price is posted and you should contact them directly.
For information on how to create cash prices in bulk, refer here.
It is important to note that a cash price will only be matched to a particular commodity if the season, grade, and location of the delivered product matches what you have outlined when creating a new price. Furthermore, should you wish to terminate/change a price that you have created, you must do so manually by cancelling the current price that you have set for the commodity.
