5. Trade And Stock

5.2. Sell & Purchase

Sell: Report a trade of volume from your stock position to a buyer or sell on behalf of the owner. Transactions must represent one or multiple physical deliveries. The information in the transaction (volume, quality, etc.) must be the same as the information reflected in the documentation accompanying the physical delivery. Make sure your buyer has the applicable traceability level in their license, if not the level will automatically be downgraded.

Please note that change of responsibility date has to be within your existing license period. Once you make a sell trade, a trade transaction id will be generated which will be in your trade tab. If you make any mistake in the trade, you can withdraw it before your buyer confirms it. You can also reverse the transaction once it is confirmed by your buyer, by clicking on the reverse button, however, your buyer will have to approve the reverse request.

When making a transaction it is also advised to use a reference number in order to identify the stock along the supply chain.

Purchase: This is a transfer of ownership similar to ‘sell’ but entered from the side of the buyer. The buyer can for example be a mandated warehouse.

Specify Preferred Member of origin

When reporting a sell, you first must select from what position you have sold the amount. Stock positions are listed per Type, Variety, Sub product, Traceability level, Reference, Location and available volume in the list

After selecting the stock position, if the traceability level is IP, you can further specify the origin of the sold products, by selecting the member of origin in the list:


Reference numbers and finding volumes from a specific transaction in the list in stock positions

Traded volumes are aggregated by identifying attributes, like Green Leaf etc. When reporting a trade, you will identify your products in stock by their characteristics.

Another way to identify your products in stock is to use the transaction specific Reference information. Transactions that carry a reference number will be listed in your stock overview.
