What do I need to do first before I can buy or sell livestock?

In order to buy or sell livestock on the platform, you will first need to submit your details associated with your livestock transfer number for approval here https://www.onfarm.co/marketplace/livestock-transfers 

Once we have confirmed these details, we will notify you by email within 24 hours.  

If you are not buying or selling through a livestock agent, you will also need to create an escrow account to receive funds as a seller or make payment as a buyer if the amount exceeds 5000 in your currency.  Escrow currently supports the following currencies: AUD, USD, CAD, EUR, GBP.

For amounts less than 5000, you will need to add a paypal account to receive these funds.  

You can access all of these settings from the main dashboard by clicking on to the Market icon and then from the dropdown list at Account Management select Livestock Transfers, Escrow Account Setup or PayPal Email.

How do I add my number associated with livestock transfers?

To buy or sell livestock, you first need to add your number associated with livestock transfers.  For example, this will be your P.I.C in Australia (Property Identification Code) or P.I.N in the United States (Property Identification Number).

Can I buy and sell using my livestock agent?

Yes, ONFARM supports the payment flow your livestock agent uses to manage their usual sales processes.  This will be subject to their usual trading and payment terms which will be shown on each item listed through the agent.

How does an agent or broker set up their listings using their own payment flow?

To access the payment flow of an agent or broker business, create a business listing in the 'Agents & Brokers' category of the business directory.  

To list items on behalf of clients, first login as the business to upload and complete your Trading & Payment terms for buyers to pay you from the Business Dashboard.  

Once you have logged in as your business, you can list items to sell on behalf of your clients.
