www.producecollective.com is a market place for Australian Farmers and Produce Dealers. This helps grower, wholesaler and buyer (companies) in selling and buying produce in bulk. Users can add their stock. Buyer can search stock and place orders. The system gives option to buyer to propose price suitable to him. If seller thinks that the price is reasonable, he can accept order. At the end of order process, buyer and sellers have to review each others. The buyers have the ability to place request for produce as well. When a buyer places a request for a particular produce, each seller for that produce gets a notification. Sellers can correspond to that request.
The application provides a mean to earn revenue by paid membership as well as charging sellers, a small percentage of each order. This percentage increases as the revenue increases for a seller.
There are 3 main kinds of users.
1. Growers (Have to purchase paid membership in order to list his stock.)
2. Wholesaler/Agents (Have to purchase paid membership in order to list his stock.)
3. Buyers (Free registration)
These users are basically companies. Each company can add its "Company Admin" and "Company Rep"
The application also provides a user-friendly "Admin End" to manage all aspects of application.
