The window 'Batch prices' has a number of extra options, which can be useful for offering the daily supply correctly. These are: edit validity, supplied packing configurations, implementing corrections and mark batches as sold out. This article discusses these options individually.
Extra options for batch prices:
Each lot receives a standard validity period. You can set this yourself. Go to Settings (upper left on your screen, beside your name)>Preferences> Standard. If you have a lot with a validity period that is longer or shorter than normal you can adapt this as follows:
Click on the three dots, which appear beside the article for which you wish to edit the validity. Then click 'Edit validity’.
A pop-up will appear with the option to enter the ‘valid from’ as well as the 'valid until' date and time. You can do so by clicking on one of the lines and selecting a date and time.
If you want to edit the validity of multiple batches at once,click on the empty square for each batch. A green bar will then appear with ‘edit validity’, with which you can adjust the validity for all selected batches.
Offered packing configurations
For trade items with multiple loads, it’s possible to offer different packing configurations to the buyer, while the trade item is deducted from one stock. You could use this if, for instance, you sell flowers both in a water container and in a box.
Click on the three dots next to the trade item for which you want to edit the offered loads and click on ‘Offered packing configurations’.
A pop-up will appear with the possible alternative packing configuration that can be added. These packing configurations can be switched on and off using the slider.
It’s possible to add an additional price (per stem) for an alternative packing configuration.
It’s also possible to always use this packing configuration for this trade item, to ensure that you do not have to repeat this step the next time you offer it.
The indicated stock may at some point be incorrect. This can happen, for example, when you cut more or less than expected, or when you have sold part of the stock in another way. This isn’t a problem, and you can make a correction.
Click on the three dots next to the trade item for which you want to make the correction, and click on ‘Submit a correction'.
A pop-up will appear with the option to submit the correction. Here you can see how many packaging units you’d originally entered, and enter how many you now want to change that to (total) in the ‘Quantity after correction’ box.
You can also give a reason, so that you can easily find out later why this batch has been corrected.
Mark batches as sold out
Just as corrections can be made, you can also decide to mark an entire batch as sold out. This may be necessary, for example, if you decide at the end of the day to auction the remainder of the day trade, or if the batch has already been sold in another way (through a purchase tip, for example).
Click on the three dots next to the trade item you want to mark as sold out and click on ‘Mark as sold out’.
In the pop-up that appears, select ‘Confirm’ if you want to mark this batch as sold out.
If you want to mark multiple batches as sold out at once,click on the empty square for each batch. A green bar will then appear with ‘Mark as sold out’. Click on this and you will have marked multiple batches as sold out at once.
What’s the point of this?
In this article, we will discuss four additional options of the ‘Batch prices’ screen. These options ensure that you, as a grower, can make optimal use of this window to put your offer online in the correct and most convenient way. If you take the time to do this correctly, buyers will be able to buy directly from the right supply.
