How does it work?

Post by Bassie999 on Thu 07 Aug 2008, 1:31 pm

Welcome to the Pandemic Alliance Tech Deal Sign-up. On this forum you can let us know if you want to buy or sell tech. We will than hook you up as soon as possible, including organizing 2x2 and 3x3 tech deals.

If you are new here, you may want to use the instructions below. Just follow the directions in this thread and post an application, and you'll be selling or receiving tech in no time!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tech Deal Types

There are 3 types of deals which are most commonly used:

- 1-on-1 deals, where you agree to buy tech from one seller, who you will pay;
- 3x3 deals, where 3 sellers sell to 3 buyers;
- 2x2 deals, where 2 sellers and 2 buyers get hooked up with eachother.

1-on-1 deals

Typically, these deals run for a longer period of time. This is because once you have sold or received tech or made or received a payment, your foreign aid slot will be locked for 10 days with the same party. Standard prices are 1.5 million for 50 tech, but other arrangements can be made individually of course. If you want to receive your tech faster, set-ups with a middleman (or 2) are also possible, just please note that in your post.

The standard set-up is as follows:

Day 1: Buyer pays 3 million to Seller;

Day 10: Seller pays 50 tech to Buyer;

Day 20: Seller pays 50 tech to Buyer;

Day 30: your aid slot is free again for the next deal.


3x3 deals

These type of deals will get you 3 million (as a seller) or 100 tech (as a buyer) within 1 day. The standard set-up is as follows:

Day 1:
Buyer 1 gives 3 million to Seller 1;
Buyer 2 gives 3 million to Seller 2;
Buyer 3 gives 3 million to Seller 3.

Seller 1 sells 50 tech to Buyer 2 and 50 tech to Buyer 3;
Seller 2 sells 50 tech to Buyer 1 and 50 tech to Buyer 3;
Seller 3 sells 50 tech to Buyer 1 and 50 tech to Buyer 2.

Day 10: your aid slots are free again for the next deal.


2x2 deals

Although the 3x3 deals work fine, the standard price is only 1.5 million per 50 tech and it uses 3 aid slots. That means that you have 2 aid slots left, which you can use to receive another 1.5 million (or more) or 50 tech almost instantly...

The standard 2x2 deal works as follows:

Day 1:
Seller 1 sells 50 tech to Buyer 2;
Seller 2 sells 50 tech to Buyer 1;
Buyer 1 gives 2 million (or more) to Seller 2;
Buyer 2 gives 2 million (or more) to Seller 1;

Day 10: your aid slots are free again for the next deal.

A note on pricing... I know that 2 million for 50 tech may seem expensive at first, but realize that you are paying for efficiency (you can efficiently use all of your 5 aid slots by doing a 3x3 and 2x2 at the same time), and for a low wait time (50 tech same day). Also, since the demand for tech is so high and the supply so low, very soon all tech deals will be completed in this manner. And you are helping a young, small nation to grow, which will get you some loyalty in return.

Having said that, however, if you (buyer) have the resources to be able to send more than 2 million, the small nations would really appreciate it if you could send more. Most large nations are already sending $3mill per deal, but I don't expect all of you to do that.

Note *** - you may specify that you would like the tech to be sent to a different nation than the one who is sending the cash. If you are doing so, please state the case very clearly and provide links to both nations. Thank you!

-------------------------------------------------------------------

How does it work?

You can just post on the forums the aid slots you have available (with the date), and any buyer or seller can contact you than directly. However, if you set-up a deal directly, please edit your post, so that others can see the status of your aid slots.

If we (Pandemic Tech Deal Organizers) see that someone has free aid slots, we can also arrange 2x2 or 3x3 tech deals, or just bring buyer and seller together. Just state your aid slots and you preference (2x2 or 3x3) in your post, and we will make a schedule.

Just note the following:

- First, determine what you want to do. Choose one of the set-ups above.
- Secondly, ensure that you have anough open aid slots for the deal.
- Thirdly, you should not be at war or in peace mode.

And if you are not a Pandemic member, please make sure that you are protected by your own alliance or by another alliance.

If you fit those qualifications, go ahead and reply here; post the following form (please update your sheet every time you do a deal, so that the status of your aid slots is up to date):

CODE
Nation Name:
Ruler Name:
Nation Link:
Alliance:

Signing up as Seller or Buyer?:

Current amount of tech:

Date available for Aid Slot 1:
Date available for Aid Slot 2:
Date available for Aid Slot 3:
Date available for Aid Slot 4:
Date available for Aid Slot 5:
Date available for Aid Slot 6:


Type and number of deals you would like to participate in (make sure you have free aid slots):

Anything else you'd like us to know?:

If you are not a member of Pandemic, please note that you may have to wait longer to be accepted for a deal. Pandemic Alliance members have priority. As a buyer, please be ensured that all deals via a Pandemic Alliance Member are always sucured by the alliance. So even if the seller for whatever reason is not able to provide you your tech (in time), let us now and the Pandemic Alliance will sort it out (either by making sure that the nation is sending you the tech after all, or the tech is send to you by another Pandemic Alliance member.


Once you've done all that, please keep an eye on your post! Questions and/or information will be edited in by a coordinator. So if you sign up, plan on being active and checking back here so we don't have to chase you down.


Thank you.

Optimizing tech buying:

If you have 0 tech, the best way to buy tech is as follows:

To buy 50 levels of technology, you will need $649,780.00.

Buy 4.5 levels of tech at $8,000.00 = $36,000.00 (4.5).
Buy 10 levels of tech at $8,000.00 = $80,000.00 (14.5).
Buy 10 levels of tech at $12,360.00 = $123,600.00 (24.5).
Buy 5 levels of tech at $14,760.00 = $73,800.00 (29.5).
Buy 10 levels of tech at $15,160.00 = $151,600.00 (39.5).
Buy 10 levels of tech at $17,560.00 = $175,600.00 (49.5).
Buy 0.5 levels of tech at $18,360.00 = $9,180.00 (50).

If you are doing tech deals @ 1.5 million for 50 tech (standard rate), that leaves you with a profit of 850,220.

Your profit will be slightly less if you buy more than 50 tech at the time. However, please keep in mind that in order to optimize you trade income, reduce daily costs and to be able to buy airplanes etc. you will want to have about 30 tech minimum in your nation.
