Frequently Asked Questions

What is iNFIELD Market?

iNFIELD Market is a Business to Business Multi Storefront e Commerce website built to buy and sell ingredients from your facility.

Who is selling product?

Mostly Ingredients suppliers, brands and manufacturers with excess or “need to move” materials

Who do we sell to?

As a sales and marketing agency, iNFIELD Market is available for manufacturers, brands, ingredient suppliers, but not direct consumers.

How do you qualify the supplier?

We perform a background check on the company and the respective individuals who have set up an account. We would typically speak with a representative directly as well.

Additionally, there are 3 main checks that would alert us to any potentials issues:

  • Liability Insurance of the Seller and Buyer
  • Original manufacturer documents and/or a letter of guarantee is required to post a raw material. Additional documents including a Chain of Custody may also be required.
  • The full transaction is not completed until the buyer has signed off on and accepted the material within the timeframe outline on the Terms and Conditions. Only then will the funds be released from escrow.
How are payments processed?

Two secure options:

  • Credit Card via Stripe (3% Processing Fee)
  • Bank- Safely pay with your bank account and avoid credit card fees. Plaid provides a revolutionary platform that is both encrypted and secure for your safety. Check out Plaid.  
What are payment terms?

Funds from purchasing party will be taken into escrow immediately and held until the material has been accepted or within 20 days of shipping. Upon approval funds will be released to the seller.

“I normally get at least 20 day terms”

  • In this system, you are gaining the benefit of competitive of usually heavily discounted items. Funds are NOT passed directly to the seller immediately. Instead, they are held in an escrow account to ensure accountability by each party. This is clean and simple and avoids the hassle of tracking down payment on invoices, which is the point.
  • Because inventory is as shown, product is set to sell and ship quickly.
  • In some instances, we will consider the nature of the proposal.
How do I setup a new account?

Simply click on the “dashboard” or “cart” which will prompt an new account set up and allow you to thoroughly search the ingredients you are looking for by key word and various sub categories.

You manage your listing, prices etc. We will provide guidance as we see fit.

Tell me about the search and why is there a map?

We included a map to show you where product is located in the U.S. and make the best decision for your geographical location. The map also shows you just how much product there really is!  Pretty cool huh?

You can use the key words to search a specific branded ingredient, raw material manufacturer that you may have already approved and narrow this down through the options in “Attribute”, “Sub Categories” and even search by price and expiration dates!

I found some ingredients that I would like to buy, but I need a SAMPLE first to evaluate:

The sample fee is $20.

What!? Who charges for samples?

  • The purpose of this is not to make money, but rather to qualify the sample request and cover some administrative fees.  If you are in need of a sample this small fee will prevent a less dynamic buyer than yourself from taking advantage of the system in place and, more importantly, make the best use of everyone’s time.
  • Again, In some instances, we will consider the nature of the proposal.
