Sellers Frequently asked questions

What is Zowasel Marketplace?


Zowasel is a sustainable crop sourcing platform across communities, people, and the planet. Marketplace connects and match thousands of crop sellers, with leading buyers locally and internationally. We are enabling buyers and sellers of crops to join our Preferred Network to securely trade with a trusted counterparty. Buyers and sellers can post, receive bids, negotiate, match, haul, and get paid at the click of a button directly with one another. You decide on pricing and terms together, Zowasel enforces smart contracts and ensures that all transactions are shipped and payments are made after delivery without any issues.




How are transactions protected on the Marketplace?


Firstly, Zowasel signs fulfillment contracts with every buyer to insure against default and or delay payments, plus payment domilication to our escrow accounts to protect our crop sellers. Secondly, Zowasel does not speculate on commodity prices and hedges risk as soon as it becomes known. This means that price changes, either up or down, have very little impact on our profit and loss. This has the added benefit that Zowasel never takes a position opposite its customers – Zowasel does better when you do better. And lastly, the transactions carried out in Marketplace are subject to industry standard and buyers payment terms are followed – ensuring there are no hidden terms or additional fees.




How much does Marketplace charge?


All selelrs have free access to our basic services which includes working with our grain marketing specialists and using the Marketplace platform to transact with trusted counterparties.

What's it about the technology of the platform?


We have designed the most user-friendly platform for buyers and sellers to conenct and transact seamlessly all in one place. One of our goals was to eliminate unnecessary phone calls and time wasted searching for emails. That's why a sellers can accept a bid, negotiate a bid, submit an offer, schedule transport, and view settlement documents all from the platform. We know technology can't fully replace the relationships and expertise that drive grain marketing. That's why every sellers with a Marketplace account has access to our knowledgeable grain marketing specialists to help them make decisions before using the technology to execute. A seller has enough to think about and manage so we've streamlined commodity marketing with every step of a decision and transaction.




What crops are available on Marketplace?


We initially launched Marketplace to support the sale of grains – leveraging our footprint in maize, soya, sorghum, and rice. In the period since Marketplace has been open to sellers and buyers, we’ve already expanded into other crops. We will continue to expand to other crops. We can also support specialty crops outside of the platform such as vetagetables fruits and many more.

To protect customers and ourselves, we follow the normal buyers' payment terms by making payments after delivery. Zowasel enforces smart contracts and ensures that all transactions are shipped and payment are made after delivery confirmation without any issues.

Zowasel signs fulfillment contracts with every buyer to insure against default and or delay payments, plus payment domilication to our escrow accounts to protect our crop sellers. However, we issue Performance Bond as "guaranteed payment Collection insurance" against the buyer's default risk at sellers request. if you choose to take a Performance Bond, verified crop sellers get a 20% discount on the cost, giving you great value and confidence.
