What is the price of KOA
What is the price of KOA? (Kopen op afstand)
The price of KOA is based on a monthly subscription fee, a transaction fee and commission fee of your broker.
Monthly subscription fee and transaction fee.
The monthly fee is charged for every license by Royal Floraholland and is €45 in 2022. The transaction fee is charged for every transaction that has been done at the auction and this fee is €1.45 in 2022. The transaction fee is relatively high when you buy small batches. For example, if you buy 10 buckets of Red Naomi Roses with 60 stems in a bucket, you buy 600 stems of Red Naomi Roses. The transaction fee of €1.45 will be divided over those 600 stems, which is €0.0024 on every stem (a quarter of a cent). If you would have bought only 1 bucket, which is 60 stems, the transaction fee would be divided over these 60 stems. So you would pay €0.024 extra on every stem.
