How to Attract More Producers and Get Better Prices for Grain

cmdty Marketplace

What if I told you it’s easy to attract more producers AND get better a price for your grain. Seems too good to be true? It’s actually pretty simple. We created cmdtyMarketplace, a private community between grain buyers and producers, to make it simple for your producers to access the data and tools they need. Through Marketplace, your entire workflow will be tied together in one place, and your farmers will be more engaged than ever before through an immersive chat experience and physical grain trading capabilities. Giving your producers all of the information and tools that they need at their fingertips creates a competitive offering that will attract more producers!

Private Grain Marketplace

Here’s how Marketplace works:

  • Grain elevators provide their producers with free access to a Marketplace app which ties into workflows across desktop and mobile
  • Fully branded to the elevator, a custom Marketplace app keeps their brand in front of producers
  • Merchandisers can stay in touch with their farmers through chat and negotiate grain offers in real time with built-in grain offer management
  • Farmers can easily submit offers to sell their grain via the app and receive instant updates from elevators when offers are accepted
  • Because Marketplace is seamlessly integrated with cmdtyView Pro it simplifies workflows for grain buyers
  • Elevators can deliver push notifications directly to the app, pulling users into a branded experience.

Marketplace comes packed with commodity data and tools that attract more producers and help you get a better price for your grain. Here are some of the top features:


Broadcast alerts to all of your producers, deliver them through push notifications, and bring them back into your app.
