Transfers can be processed between any two people within the database, regardless of membership status.
Follow this simple process to complete a transfer.
Only existing animals in the system can be transferred. If they do not yet exist, complete their registration before continuing on.
The person that is receiving the transfer may already be in the system as a member or a non-member. The buyer may have also bought from this member before. You have the option to choose either:
Either search for the existing entry, or enter a new buyer from scratch. If the buyer already exists in the system, PremiumBreed in most cases can complete a match automatically.
The next screen will ask for the date of transfer. Once this is entered, you will be taken to select the animals to be transferred.
Here, you will have a list of all of the animals that are available for transfer from the currently selected member. Click "Transfer" next to each entry to be transferred, and then at the bottom of the page, click 'Continue'.
You should now see a summary of your transfer, including:
If you need to, you can click on 'Add animals to transfer' to transfer more than one animal at once.
Once you are happy with this transfer, click 'Submit transfer' to lodge this request and update the animal's movement history.
The PremiumBreed system can automatically block transfers that are older than 60 days. If this happens, an Administrator will simply need to go back into the transfer, and click 'Submit' again.
Occasionally, PremiumBreed will block a transfer if it doesn't meet automatic validation rules. There are a range of different error messages that you might receive, but they will generally give you a good idea of how to fix a problem.
In this case, PremiumBreed only allows an animal to be transferred from a seller once. This is a built in protection, so the same animal cannot accidentally be recorded as being sold by the same vendor twice. PremiumBreed will identify where the animal has been transferred previously, and give you a link to this entry. From here, you have a few options on how to proceed.
If the animal you are selecting doesn't appear to attach to a transfer, chances are it has already been added to a different transfer from the same vendor. Take a look at other transfer sales for that vendor, and you should find the previous entry.
