Default Buying and selling between farmers

You can now also sell primary products to players. A new option available to all Farmtown players is the ability to sell and buy product from each other. The Buyer and Seller do not need to be friends, neighbors or buddies and all transactions can take place anywhere within Farmtown.



To initiate a transaction, click on the Buyer's avatar and select 'sell products to'.



The Seller now has a few selling options to complete the sale offer.



There is a little drop down arrow to the right of each section which allows you to change the options for selling.

Category: choose whether you would like to sell product harvested from Crops, From Trees, From Animals, Fish or Flowers.
Product: choose the specific item you would like to sell.
Quantity: choose how much of the chosen product you would like to sell
Mark Up : choose your asking price for your product

Mark Up options:
- 10% below market price: if the Seller wants to give the Buyer a discount at his own expense
- At market price: this will be the same as selling the products at the market
- 10% to 50% above market price: in this case the seller is making a profit

*NOTE TO SELLERS* Only primary products are available for sale to other players. Meaning, product that has been harvested directly from crops, trees, animals and flowers or fished.

The Buyer will now receive a menu giving them the option to review the offer or decline the offer.



If the Buyer reviews the offer and clicks the green check mark the offer will be finalized and the Seller will be given the option to make further offers to the buyer.



If the Buyer declines the offer, the Seller will be given the option to renegotiate the terms of that same offer.

*NOTE TO BUYERS* Every user can purchase up to 1500 products from other users every 12 hours. Whereas the Seller has no limit in the amount he or she can sell.

To Increase your buying limit see the next post What is my Buying limit? on page 2.

The final price that the Seller and the Buyer see may be different. The Buyer is always paying the price for a medium box, even if the Seller is selling a combination of large and medium boxes. The difference will be compensated by the Mayor.

Default What is my Buying limit?

What is my Buying limit?

Your Buying limit starts at 1500 per 12 hours and based on your Best Diversification Rank it will increase as follows . . .

Your Diversification Rank is calculated using the following method:

- For each Facility you own you get 25 points

- For each Product in a facility with pending productions you get:

- 5 points if you have 19% or less of the product capacity used
- 6 points if you have between 20 and 39% of the product capacity used
- 7 points if you have between 40 and 59% of the product capacity used
- 8 points if you have between 60 and 79% of the product capacity used
- 9 points if you have between 80 and 99% of the product capacity used
- 10 points if you have 100% of the product capacity used

The 'Best:' value always shows the Best Diversification Rank you have been able to achieve at any point in the game.

You can find your Best Diversification Rank by opening your tool box and clicking on the Facility Manager. The number you are looking for is the one next to "Best" to the right of your "Diversification Rank".



This is then used for “Trading” (buying products from another farmer)

1. The Maximum 12 hour limit starts at 1500 for all players.

2. Based on your Best Diversification Rank you can keep increasing that limit based on these rules:

Best Diversification Rank between 2000 and 5000, trading limit increased by 1000 units
Best Diversification Rank between 5000 and 10000, trading limit increased by 2000 units
Best Diversification Rank between 10000 and 30000, trading limit increased by 3000 units
Best Diversification Rank between 30000 and 60000, trading limit increased by 4000 units
Best Diversification Rank between 60000 and 100000, trading limit increased by 5000 units

3. You can increase that amount again based on the amount of business clothes you own. There are 3 business clothes available in your Avatar Clothes section. For each business cloth you own your limit is increased by 5000 units, meaning, if you own the 3 business clothes your limit will be increased by 15000 units.
N.B ONLY the business clothes will help with your buying limit and NOT any other clothes.

Example of Buying limit:
You start with 1500 units
Best Diversification is 36167 (4000 units)
You own 3 Business clothes (3 x 5000 = 15000 units)
Your buying limit will be 20500 units
