Did You Know?

By building relationships on-line you give yourself the maximum opportunity to get a trade done?

Moving your relationships on-line requires some initial time investment to link up to the counterparties you trade with and accessing new ones. However, by managing and nurturing these relationships, users can immediately connect and communicate to a bigger universe of counterparties. This can be particularly beneficial when it comes to tougher market conditions allowing instantaneous access to all your counterparties at the push of a button.


Q. Can I trade with multiple counterparties on one order?

A. This is happily supported in the system and means that a buyer can make a request to several counterparties and trade part of the order with one company (who may have the best price but not the total volume required) and the balance with a second or third seller. Sellers on the other hand can put up an offer with an inventory level in any amount and work this with multiple customers. The system will allow the seller to see and manage each separate negotiation with the buyers, and most importantly the system won’t let sellers over-trade – i.e. sell inventory they don’t have.
