Difference in Deferred Pricing (DP) vs Deferred Payment
- DP is an acronym for “Deferred or Delayed Pricing.” It can also be referred to as “PL/Price Later.” When utilizing a DP contract, ownership of the grain transfers to the elevator. This contract allows the customer to deliver the grain to ADM under the agreement that the grain will be priced at a later date. Dates and service fees vary by location and market conditions.
- Deferred Payment allows a producer to receive payment for grain sold at a later date.
