How to Sell Food Online with Ellensburg Food Cooperative
Acting as the agent of producer members, the Ellensburg Food Cooperative posts on the Internet and publicizes the products the producers have for sale. We receive orders, provide a way for products to be delivered to local customers, and collects from the customers and forwards the payments to the producers.
The essential business of the Ellensburg Food Cooperative is to provide a marketplace where willing buyers and sellers can meet. At no time does the cooperative ever have title to any of the products. We have no inventory. The products that go through our distribution system are owned either by the producer, or by the customer who purchases "title" to the product from the producer.
- Producers log in and list what they have available to sell. The producer sets his or her own prices for products. The computer will calculate the retail prices for you when you put in your selling price.
- As customer members shop and place products in their shopping cart, your inventories are available to them based on your posted quantities on a first-come-first-serve basis.
- The order cycle closes.
- Producers check and pack their orders, upload weights, check unavailable products as "out of stock".
- Producers deliver to the Ellensburg Food Cooperative distribution center. Products are checked in at our distribution center
- Members pick up their orders that same day and enjoy the flavors of fresh, locally grown foods!
