Products to be sold to customers are kept in displays, from where the customer can purchase them.
Stocking displays Edit
- See also: Shipment
Displays need to be stocked with products for customers to buy.
Depending on how many levels you have had a display for, you are usually given a choice (up to three) of suppliers from whom to order stock, each supplying a different quantity of products. There are three categories that suppliers fall under: "Quick Delivery" (the fastest option), "Really Preferable" and "Mass Shipment" (the largest quantity). As with many Facebook games, after you have ordered stock there is a waiting period before it arrives, depending on how big the order is. For example, an order of 17 magazines takes 3 minutes to arrive, whereas an order of 988 magazines takes 12 hours to arrive. Naturally, larger ordes also cost more coins than smaller ones.
When an order has arrived, a green arrow will appear above the display. Click it to serve the product.
Speeding up ordersEdit
Ordered stock can be delivered immediately by making use of Delivery Cards. The larger the order, the more Cards are needed to instantly deliver it.
Instantly serving productsEdit
A small amount of products can also be served immediately without having to order stock by using a Product Card.
StarsEditEvery time you order stock for a certain display, the amount ordered is added to a tally, and when a certain amount is reached, you earn a Star. Each display has three stars to be earned. One Star decreases the order's cost by 10%. The second Star increases the quantity of the order by 10%, and the third Star increases the XP earned from serving the shipment by 10%. When all three stars of all the displays in a department are earned, you unlock an extra display as a reward, for example the Produce special display is Sea product.
