From 2021 onwards, all direct transactions on the Royal FloraHolland marketplace will only take place digitally. In order to comply with 100% Digital, growers will no longer be able to create a direct order and send it through a Connect-EAB. Instead, however, you can create a special offer or a purchase tip.
At the end of 2020, Royal FloraHolland announced a leniency scheme for growers, buyers and agents still waiting for the link with their software package, or for parties that are already working 100% Digital, but the other party not yet. As things stand, those growers who have been granted leniency may still create direct orders in Floriday. If you don't benefit from this scheme, you may only settle orders manually with buyers who have been granted leniency.
Growers who trade 100% Digital on Floriday may use the special offer or purchase tip, or place supply on the market so that the buyer can post a transaction against it.
Creating a direct order
NB: This functionality is exclusively available to growers who have been granted leniency, or for orders submitted to buyers benefitting from the scheme.
On Floriday, go to Fulfillment > Deliverie orders and click the Add Delivery order button.
In step 1, select Direct order and click on Next step
Here, you can set the delivery information, including the shipping location, customer, delivery location, method of delivery, transporter and the time of delivery. In addition, this shows the various ways in which financial settlement can take place, and you can also add your own reference to the order.
Then click on Add Batches or Add Trade Items.
Enter the number of packaging units and the price per item. Here, you can copy the available lot or catalogue prices.
After saving the direct order, you will be asked if you want to logistically process the delivery immediately. Click on Not Now to process the delivery later. You will now be able to find this delivery under Processing > Processing deliveries > Pending. Click on To order fulfillment to process the delivery.
You will now see an overview of the delivery. Here you will find the trolley configuration, which is filled in automatically based on the selected packing configurations and the number of packaging units. Use the two dashes on the left of a trade item to change the trolley configuration. Use the three dots to split the trade item or undo the configuration. This enables you to change the trolley configuration according to your needs.
When everything is set up correctly, click on Save and Complete and the Connect-EAB will then be sent.
As soon as you have created a delivery, under Processing > Deliveries, you will see an overview of deliveries of previous days. You can copy these using the Copy Delivery button on the right. This way, you can quickly and easily resend the same direct order.
