Listo FAQs

cannabis manufacturers | seed to sale platform | woman writing on whiteboard

As minorities ourselves, we know how difficult it can be to find value aligned partners that we trust. So, whether small or large – we bring everyone together. From legacy growers, equity partners, and ready-to-scale operators, we connect everyone to move products with all of the compliance, documentation, transportation, and payments securely under one app. 

What is Listo?

Listo is a secure cannabis sourcing app that quickly brings sellers and buyers together in real time with simple sample fulfillment. 

How is Listo unique?

We focus on value chain and value aligned purchasing. Where other marketplaces focus on brands, we specialize in moving equity and minority owned operators, as well as legacy, craft cultivators up the value chain.

Did we mention Listo is a transparent marketplace? Listo requires access to your Metrc and provides visibility into tracked packages, logistics and status updates. When each Listo community member securely connects their Metrc to our system, it provides visibility to a previously opaque supply chain.

Do I qualify for Listo?

How do I list product for sale on Listo?

Will my inventory automatically create listings on Listo?

Simply tap “make an offer” to start communicating with the seller. Listo’s messaging functionality allows sellers and buyers to communicate through the entire deal process to ensure that their needs and concerns are addressed, resulting in increased trust in the process.

Does Listo integrate with METRC?

Yes! Using your valid API user key, Listo will connect to METRC for each user. This makes it very convenient for users to:

  • Rest assured that they are dealing with permitted licensed users
  • Easily package inventory they wish to list
  • Verify that listed product is legitimate
  • Track the product as it moves along the transfer process

Why do I need a METRC API user key to use Listo?

Transparency. As a transparent marketplace, Listo requires access to your Metrc to provide visibility on tracked packages, logistics and status updates. When each Listo community member securely connects their Metrc to our system, it provides visibility to a previously opaque supply chain. Don’t worry – only you can view, make edits to your inventory. 

I’m in another state which uses Metrc, can I use Listo?

Absolutely. Reach out to our team here to start the conversation.

Can I list my product without testing it?

Yes. You can create a listing for your product without test results. However, we recommend adding test results to help sell your products by increasing transparency and adding information that buyers can use to make buying decisions. 

Can I register with Listo without adding any listings?

Yes! You can download the Listo app and create a profile for your facility and organization without adding any listings. You can decide to add listings or make offers at any time.

How does Listo promote transparency and trust?

Every registered Listo user is required to provide an active license and a valid METRC API user key to join. This allows Listo to verify that a user is legally permitted to buy and/or sell wholesale cannabis products in California. It also provides visibility as the products move throughout the chain. 

Sellers can upload images and videos of the listed product, as well as test results to validate the quality of the product in the listing. A buyer may request a sample of the listed product for physical verification. Listo’s integrated messaging allows users to easily communicate with counterparts. Listo is committed to bring its users a critical but often missing component in wholesale cannabis business transactions: trust.

Can users leave reviews?

Buyers provide thorough feedback for sample evaluations and a rating for their overall experience when a transfer is complete. In the near future, users will be able to review one another on the basis of their transactions.
