Queanbeyan Farm Cooperative
The Queanbeyan Farm Cooperative is a family enterprise that uses a
single web site to sell the products of several family members. The
main output is traditional wool, beef and mutton that is sold
through traditional outlets, but wine from the family vineyard and
surplus propogated vine rootlings are sold on the internet. Olive
oil and honey also come from the property. The great grand daughter
of the founder is a graduate of the Queanbeyan Opera School and
sells recordings of her performances, and her brother spends his
spare time writing software for computer games.
When you use a payment gateway you use a product code for every type of thing that
you sell. sellEbit enables you to use a hierarchy of codes. This
code hierarchy is used in several places within sellEbit.
The cooperative have adopted product codes which enable them to act
on orders and produce reports according to the different types.
Hence the starts of the product codes are:
- and VINES.
The codes are made up of extra levels separated by "-". Some

A small business that sells a small number of products may need only
simple one-level codes but others may want several code levels e.g.
although the cooperative vineyard produces much the same wines every
year, the vintage is significant so wine codes are of the form
