The sphere of agricultural production is one of the largest world’s sectors of business. At the same time, it is the most sensitive one. Agricultural industry strongly depends on a number of factors such as the climate conditions, the cost of the labor, world’s economy situation, etc. All these factors make agriculture a really risky business, as the farmer of any kind can never be absolutely sure if he is going to be at loss or get a great profit.
Naturally, the farmers are trying to reduce the self-cost of agricultural products on every stage of their creation, i.e. from the price of seeds to the cost of machinery for harvesting.
As a rule, farms are situated far from large cities with their agricultural exhibitions and farming machinery showrooms. In order not to be limited by the location, farmers turn their attention to online shopping.
To choose a reliable agricultural marketplace is truly a tough task, especially if you are not experienced in online shopping. In fact, there are a lot of agricultural sites, marketplaces, online shopping platforms to choose from.

Compare products to make the best deals on our platform.
Be attentive to the details
Agricultural supplies must be accompanied with the accurate and explicit information about their characteristics. It is important to know that sometimes the price is stated per kilogram or set, sometimes – per ton. Be attentive to order the actual amount of product you need.

Choose appropriate payment method
Tradalaxy is an international trading platform that joins manufacturers and buyers from all parts of the world. Naturally, each country has different rules for bank operations. So, choosing a business partner you have to check where your partner is from because bank charges vary from country to country, and as a result, that will influence the delivery price.
When speaking about agricultural products, logistics can be the main issue. Why is that of primary importance? Surely, if you are going to export agricultural equipment, a short delay of the delivery won’t be critical.
But if you target fruits, vegetables, berries or flowers, the problems with the delivery can destroy your business because these items have very limited storage life.
For these reasons, we strongly recommend you study the details of the supplier before making the deal. For example, if you are going to send apples from Ukraine to Asia, you must be 100 per cent informed about the logistics, its terms and the cost.
For your convenience, each item displayed on our trading platform is accompanied with the logistics details.
How to know about logistics?
- Click on the chosen product, paying attention to the quantity of the item in a package first, as it will give you an idea of how much of the product you want.
- Press button “Logistics”.
- Read about the location of the warehouse, the nearest port and nearest container terminal. Also you will see the information about the packaging size.
- Plan your purchase so that you will have a bit of extra time, in case of any unforeseen delays.
- Contact the seller to agree on the deal.
Note! You have to discuss everything with the business partner because misunderstanding caused by the language or cultural differences may lead to the loss of your profit. In case of any controversial issue or any misunderstanding with a business partner, you should write to our client support center at once.
