Buyers increasingly want to be able to see future supply and, if necessary, be able to place orders on it. They are therefore increasingly likely to ask you as a grower to enter your prices in advance. This can easily be done in Floriday using the 'Forward prices' function. In addition, you can always copy weekly prices from previous weeks with the 'copy week' button.

In Floriday, you can determine from when a buyer may order on future supply by setting the order period. The order period is a minimum of 1 week and a maximum of 52 weeks. Depending on the number of weeks that you set here, the buyer can order on supply x number of weeks before the delivery period.

The following steps are discussed on this page:

Forward prices

Through forward prices, you can plan your supply in the list prices a year in advance. Buyers can, depending on your order period, also pre-order this supply in Floriday or make a request.

How does it work?

In Floriday, go to the menu on the left and click on Supply > Direct sales > Catalogue prices

Select the trade items for which you want to enter forward prices; you can do so by clicking the check boxes next to the trade items.

Select ‘Forward prices’ in the green bar that appears at the bottom of the screen.

Choose the weeks for which you want to enter the quantities and prices. You can do so by clicking on the weeks at the top of the screen.

If necessary, adjust the quantities and prices for the selected weeks. Note: a basic price must always be entered, otherwise the forward prices cannot be saved.

By selecting several items at once, you can enter the stock or price for the selected items.

Click on 'Save' at the top right.

The quantities and prices are now set for the selected weeks. The forward prices are therefore online immediately in Floriday. Buyers can now see the prices.

What do the colours mean in forward prices?

With forward prices, you often see the weeks with the colours yellow and green. The weeks shown in green mean that those weeks have the same price as the week you are looking at the forward price from.

Yellow means that these weeks have a different price compared to the week you go to the forward prices from.

Adjusting availability

When entering catalog prices, as a grower you can use the availability slider to turn the trade items 'on' and 'off'. This applies to the current and coming week. Even if the order period is longer than 2 weeks, it only relates to the current and coming week.

Copy weekly prices

If prices are the same the next week, these can be copied over. Easily copy the prices and quantities from this week or another week in the past byclicking on ‘Copy week...’ at the top of the screen, or click on the arrow and select the relevant week.

How does it work?

Go to the menu on the left and click Supply > Direct Sales > Catalogue prices

You first have to fill in the weekly list with the correct availability, quantities and prices.

Navigate to a week in the future that has not yet been entered.

You can copy a previous week by clicking ‘Copy week...’ at the top of the screen.

What’s the point of this?

What’s the point of this?

Copying a previous week saves you a lot of time and reduces the chance of errors when entering quantities and prices. It also enables buyers to look ahead to see what is to come.

You can always change the quantities and prices later, until 10.00 am on Thursday for the coming week. After this, the weekly list closes and the prices entered are fixed.
