FAQs

How are transactions with Marketplace protected?

Indigo insures against buyer default risk through insurance with Allianz (one of the world’s largest insurance companies) who will cover payments if there is an issue with the buyer. Indigo is also licensed and bonded in 25 states.

Secondly, Indigo 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 Indigo never takes a position opposite its customers – Indigo does better when you do better.

And lastly, the transactions carried out in Marketplace are subject to industry standard NGFA rules – ensuring there are no hidden terms or additional fees.

How much does Marketplace charge?

All growers have free access to our basic services which includes working with our grain marketing specialists and using the Marketplace platform to transact grain. Indigo offers additional premium products and services such as our pricing tools and Indigo Transport for growers looking to unlock more profitability for their grain.

How is Marketplace different from other grain marketplaces?

Indigo Marketplace is the only place that offers end-to-end grain marketing solutions for growers. You can fully manage your futures, basis setting, transport, contracts, and settlement in one place whether it is through our platform or call to a dedicated grain marketing specialist. Using Marketplace saves you time, offers more visibility across your entire grain marketing process, and gives you more confidence in your decision-making.

What if I don’t see my local elevator in Marketplace?

We are still building relationships to bring more elevators and bids into Marketplace in some areas. Submit a direct offer with a facility name and price and our team will reach out to your local elevator on your behalf.

Can you share more about the technology of the platform?

We have designed the most user-friendly platform for growers to make it easy for them to transact on the go and manage their grain marketing all in one place.

One of our goals was to eliminate unnecessary phone calls and time wasted searching for emails. That's why a grower 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 grower with a Marketplace account has access to our knowledgeable grain marketing specialists to help them make decisions before using the technology to execute.

Because profitability is so important to growers, we built our bid browsing experience to include Price After Freight so that growers can see the profitability of each bid net of transport for their farm when comparing buyers in different locations.

A grower has enough to think about and manage so we've streamlined grain marketing with every step of a decision and transaction.

What crops are available on Marketplace?

We initially launched Indigo Marketplace to support the sale of grain grown from our microbial-treated seeds – leveraging our footprint in wheat, soy, corn, and rice. In the period since Marketplace has been open to growers and buyers, we’ve already expanded into other crops. Full list, which will continue to expand: wheat, soy, corn, rice, milo, and sunflower. We can also support specialty crops outside of the platform for crops such as peas, popcorn, etc.
