What’s New: July FarmLead Marketplace Updates

FarmLead is always looking for ways to make buying and selling grain easier for our users. The latest FarmLead Marketplace updates were designed to do just that!

We’re excited to share some of the new features and improvements that we’ve released recently.

FarmLead Marketplace Updates – July 2018

Rating System

As you may already be aware, ratings will now be out of 5 stars. Your score changed because of this. For existing users who have engaged with the platform, you started with a rating of 4 stars out of 5. If you have completed a deal, then your rating will start at 4.5 stars out of 5. If you haven’t posted to the marketplace or engaged in a negotiation, you will have no rating. Head to your FarmLead profile to review your user rating and start building it up!


Leave Public Feedback and Comments

You can leave feedback about your counterparty post-negotiation and when a deal closes. Not only will this help users be more transparent and accountable, but it also improves the Marketplace.

Achievements and Badges

To make the Marketplace more interactive, we have included the ability to earn achievements based on your dealings. As a current user, you also can earn a special badge for being an early adopter.


No need to compete with your colleagues anymore – coordinate better by adding people to your team. Under Account Settings in your FarmLead profile, you can add co-workers, employees, and family members to your FarmLead account and manage your grain deals better, together.
