Types of Marketplace Offers
A Negotiable Offer allows users more flexibility and open communication, especially if you are willing to look at alternative movement periods or freight terms. The user is not bound to buy/sell based on the posted terms – for a deal to happen, a counterparty must first make a counteroffer to the user that they can review before accepting it.
A Negotiable Offer is customizable for up to 30 days and can be reposted.
A Firm Offer allows users to buy/sell the commodity right away at a set price. Once posted, the user is contractually obligated to make a deal when the counterparty accepts their terms. Use a Firm Offer if you know exactly the terms you want and want to buy/sell your commodity immediately.
A Firm Offer is valid for 72 hours only.
No Price Offer
A No Price Offer allows users to sell/buy new or old crop commodities without setting a price. While similar to a negotiable offer, a No Price Offer requires the counterparty to send a price when making a formal offer. This is a great way to showcase some inventory as a seller, or, as a buyer, indicate the volume you’re trying to purchase.
A No Price Offer is also customizable for up to 30 days and can be reposted.
