How We Do:

We have simple enquiries & quotations platform. A farmer or trader who is looking to sell agricultural produce can create such enquiry in 15 seconds. This enquiry then becomes visible to relevant traders / buyers who can submit bids / quotations. These quotes are filtered by intelligent software algorithm and 3 best quotes are forwarded to farmer / trader who generated that enquiry. He can select one and confirm his transaction by paying small advance. This advance is held by Krishi Trade escrow account and is 100% refundable is transaction does not materializes. The advance can be waived off or discounted as per internal rating. The trader / buyer whose quotation got selected is intimated and he is required to pay advance which again is held in escrow. Once the transaction is confirmed by both parties, Krishi Trade facilitates movement of goods (and optionally also grading, sorting, packaging, warehousing, discounting) through its group company Truck Dial and after the trade is concluded, the escrow amount is settled and transaction is completed.

In reverse bidding, the trader / buyer also has option to create “buy” enquiry on Krishi Trade platform and receive quotes from other traders / farmers who are interested to “sell”. The buyer then follows same process as above, has an option to deposit advance in escrow, select seller, and complete the transaction.

Supply Chain Services:

The single most important worry of farmer is to get good price for his produce. That is marketing of his produce which includes efficient economical supply chain. Krishi Trade is agri marketplace its various traders, wholesellers, large buyers, including individuals or companies in grading-sorting, packaging, warehousing, assaying, discounting, transportation, makes it easier for everyone to come together for each and every such buy-sell order and offer integrated transparent service.
