Add a CSA Group and Add a Share
Updated: Mar 12
A CSA group is a group of shares marketed together with common distributions and policies. A CSA has to have at least one share available for purchase. Customers buy a share, not a CSA. But you can name your shares however you would like.
This video shows you how to add a CSA group.
You're not done yet! You need to add at least one share to your CSA group in order for a customer to buy it.
A share has one schedule, but can be available at multiple locations. Usually, shares are distributed on a recurring basis either weekly, biweekly or monthly.
Basic Info & Contents
Buying a Primary Share is required for a customer to be able to buy an Addon Share. For example, a lot of CSAs have a veggie share as their primary share and let you buy an egg share addon. If you would like customers to be able to purchase different share types independently, make them all primary shares.
A share can belong to multiple CSAs, but it has to belong to at least one CSA.
Specifying what products go into a share is optional.
Schedule & Price
Using SKUs is optional for products and shares.
This is where you set your distribution date range - exact dates are tied to specific distribution locations and their associated schedules. You select these in the next tab.
