Where can I find the bank and what is the purpose of the bank?
 
By clicking on the "Map" button which is on the bottom right of your screen, then select the "The Bank" in the menu that appears. Just like the 'buy cash' tab above your farm, the bank is the place to go to purchase farmcash or coins.

How do I purchase Farmcash or coins?
 
1. Select the 'buy cash' tab above your farm or visit the bank.

2. Choose the amount of farmcash you would like to purchase, select the box beside 'terms of service' and then click on the green 'BUY' square.

4. Then click on the blue 'Buy' button

Note: for purchases NOT using US dollars. You will not see what it will cost in your currency until you click the BUY button, then it will show you the cost in your currency in the Payment Method window as shown above. If you are not ready to buy yet you can cancel the transaction in that same window.

What is FarmCash?
 
http://r1.slashkey.com/images/gamegu.../Farm Cash.PNG

Although the game is free, certain luxury objects, buildings and tools are not available for purchase with coins. These objects which can not be purchased with coins are purchased with something called FarmCash also known as FC .

These items are called "luxury" as they're viewed as bonuses for the game meaning they're not necessary to play, they just enhance the game in certain aspects.

The majority of the items in the store can be purchased with the coins you earn while playing. You can earn coins by...
  • Selling your crops
  • Selling harvested or chopped tree products
  • Selling flowers
  • Visiting neighbours farms once a day, and doing the daily task (tending)
  • Selling fish you have caught in your own waters
  • Working for other farmers, harvesting crops/trees/flowers, chopping trees, plowing, fishing
  • Selling gifts you receive from friends
  • Instead of selling, you can use your produce to make products in facilites and then sell them for a bigger profit.
  • You can work friends facilites and sell any products that you don't have a use for
  • You can earn by doing daily quests, perhaps from harvesting or plowing.

I have never purchased FarmCash, but I have it on my account. Why?
 
You start the game with 5FC. Each time you level-up in the game you will be awarded with 1FC for free. This means if you have never spent FarmCash and you are at level 33 of the game, you will have 38FC on the game.

You can see your FC by looking at the counter which is right under your coins counter. This is an example of 5FC.

Do I have to buy FarmCash?
 
No you do not, this is because:
  1. You gain 1FC each time you level-up in the game
  2. The majority of the items in the store are available for purchase in coins
  3. Items only available in FC are luxury items, not necessary elements of the game
  4. You can be gifted FC by a neighbor or buddy.

What is the difference between coins and FarmCash?
 
This is a good question as there are both similarities and differences. The main difference is the way to earn coins and FC. Whenever you are working for someone on their farm, for example, harvesting for them, you will gain coins. You can earn FC for free when you level up.

The FC, as mentioned, is used mainly for luxury items on the game. For example, decorations, buildings, or other "high-end" objects like the bigger tools can be purchased with FC.

I bought an item in FC but when I sell the item I get coins, not FC. Is this normal?
 
This is normal, yes. All elements of the game such as animals, buildings, decorations and so-forth can be purchased with coins or FarmCash but if they are sold they will be repaid in coins - not FC.

You can check for yourself what Farm Cash you have bought, what you have spent and what you have earned in the game. To see this do the following >>
  • Click on the Account tab at the top of your game screen
  • Then click on Farm Cash Activity Log

Purchases of Farm Cash and any Farm Cash earned will have a green background.

Those with a pink background are what you have spent in game.
