Your online market is where you can showcase your freshly grown produce, meat products, cheese or other items. This tool is very versatile and can be used for CSA shares, events, selling livestock, sending orders, inventory tracking and more.
On your market dashboard you will see some charts and graph showing you total sales, top sellers, recent order and more. This gives you an overall picture of your shop.
You can use the date filter at the top to sort through and find specific orders or look at the data in different ways.
Your products are where you can add things to sell on your online store. Add a CSA share, types of meat, produce or any items that you are selling. This brings the store to your customers.
Add a new product by clicking the "New Product" button or upload a list of products that you have in an excel and saving it as a CSV file. (Read on for instructions.)
Add a new product
This is where you can showcase your item for sale. Add images and detailed descriptions about your items so your customer can find the ones they want.
Click on the "New Product" button
Enter the information that you would like to list about your product like a product name, price, listing category, status and all the details about your item.
This tab lets you create a customized online storefront. It shows your homepage, a gallery of photos and lets you add logos and photo headers to your page.
You can use the site provided with your Farmbrite account (which you will find on the Online Store tab). You can also use your own URL and embed the Farmbrite market on your site. There is a link to add that in the Online Store tab.
To take online payments you will need to set up your shop with Stripe, our payment processor. You can also decide to only accept cash or check. We also have the option to set up the Quick Pay options through Stripe. Once you have set up your account with them you can send invoices or receive payments by scanning a QR code. You can add this QR code to a roadside farmstand, use it in your pop-up shop or when you send invoices to customers.
Remember to set up your currency in your Account settings.
This is where you will find a listing of all your orders that have been place. You can search your orders history for past or new orders.
You can also create new orders and see orders that have been placed. You can add discounts, shipping and delivery fees as well as taxes. Farmbrite does not calculate taxes automatically but there are resources by clicking on the tax links under Add Taxes that can help you with this calculation.
(Note: Deleted orders can not be restored.)
You can create an invoice through the Farmbrite Market that you can send to your customers. You can easily create and share invoices for your orders.
Click the "Email Invoice" at the top next to the Pick inventory button. You will need to have a valid email for your customer, and your Stripe and Quick payment set up in your account.
Add pick up locations, delivery options, or show your hours of operation to your customers. Then you can tell your customers when and where to come pick up their boxes or orders.
At this time Farmbrite only supports Stripe Payment. You will be asked to set up an account with them when you open your online shop. They process all payments in the Farmbrite market.
Since payment is processed through Stripe you would also do refunds through them. Log into your Stripe account to do this and for more information.
Farmbrite has an option of using quick pay. You can use this at off-farm events or at your farm stand.
How this works:
A customer scans your unique QR code and then is quickly able to pay for your farm products. This is a contactless payment system which is a convenient way to offer credit card payments to your customers.
