How do you earn coins in the game?

Postby Angelique (8478399) » Sun Jan 14, 2018 7:17 pm

I'm not referring to working at the factory or doing coin runs. Yes you can earn coins this way but definitely not enough to purchase nice discontinued items. What I used to do before was hunt for bargains in the game, keep them for a bit until they've gone up in price then I'd sell the items. I'm unable to do that now since I spend less time in the game. Any suggestions? :) I like to keep wearables and I need a way to earn some coins to keep up with my obsession. :D Thanks.

I watch ads. The best time to watch ads is during double coin promotions. I made 3 million watching ads the last time double coins was around. Also playing the yoworld mobile app.

the two easiest ways to earn coin without buying and selling are the free gift chests and watching ads. To get more free gift chests you simply add more buddies. At my level I am making about 35k a day from free gift chests. You need at least 250 active buddies to maximize the bonus in the free gift chests. If you have more than this is even better. Ads are a different story. The number of ads available to you is dependent on what area you live in. Some receive no ads, the average is suppose to be 5 a day but some areas allow for more, a lot more. I earn between 80k and 120k a day watching ads. I earn coins in other ways too but these are the two big earners.

Buy some Yocash and sale it you can usually buy the deals that offer coins as well with it. I mean that is really your only option besides the normal way to earn coins in game via factory, visits, gift chests, the ads, or buying lower to sale higher. :)

I'll look into the coin chests. :) I've received some from buddies but most of my buddies have been inactive for a while. I usually don't like to add players randomly. Thanks for the tip.

How many coins would be sufficient? I make most of my coins from the Auction House, if you have a 'good eye' for items that are likely to be a hit during or before a particular occasion like now Valentines day items are on sale (especially wearables) you take a business risk and buy in bulk then sell again with profit margin and covering the original cost fee, its really market exchange 101 you set a baseline spendings and a margin you don't cross so your future investments are spent on from what you profited before, however this is something you plot months before not when BVG release their sets because by then the coins spending shifts to buying YC from 3rd party sellers and some settle for what BVG provides so the market slows down a bit.

Watch out for bid now ,many items go cheap and you can pick them up before everyone else If you have solid nerves and outbid people before the timer runs out.
This is how I make mine, I don't like hosting events sales, sometimes I visit sales made by others and find items that go way cheaper than AH. The only thing I hate is the 10% fee which eats a large chunk of my profit but it is what it is.

:eh: So the factory and visits are not enough, you can not buy and sale because you are not in game enough, you watch ads but not often because it takes up time, you do not buy and never will? Sorry but other than you doing what everyone else does and just saving up there is not any other way. You have to be willing to put forth some effort. Yes it takes time to save to do the things you need to do to make them and that is part of the game. Good luck to you.

When I said I haven't purchased anything in this game, I meant using real money to buy coins and yocash. I have bought some things in the game (ex. hairs, accessories etc). :)

The double coins promotion comes and goes. Whenever BVG brings it back it usually last for 2 days to a week and you will know when it has come back because a TV icon will appear on the right side of your screen when you come into the game and when you click on it, it will tell you that the double coins promotion is back :)

If you don't mind me asking, how much do you have to work with right now?

My approach changes depending on how many coins are around

Edit: to elaborate

When starting out I'd suggest going to open actions and buying whatever hairs are in the current box and paying no more than 40k each, then pop those in the AH and sell them for 100-150k each until you have about 10m. You need coins to make coins.

Assuming you have a pretty good grasp on the prices of items start going for items that are high at the moment, but stay at open auctions for now as people with a lot of coins tend to go to closed, the key to getting stuff really cheap that you can flip is to have more coins then the other people in the room. When you see an item that's good and that you know the price of try to get it for at least 1m less then it's worth, then turn around and sell it.

When you get up to 20-30m I'd say that's a good time to start looking at closed auctions as a way of finding items as they normally have bigger ticket items, just keep flipping from there on out. :D


I will admit the whole buying and selling thing is a bit painful for me, but it does work really well. To give a few examples: I had a friend who had just started out and went from having a brand new account to having about 70m worth of stuff in her account in about 6 months doing what I said above. I've bought a few hairs for 6-9m and sold them for 13-18m a few days after working with auctions.

Alsoooo, remember that the seller sets the starting bid so even if you get something cheap that's the risk the seller chose to take so don't feel too bad :haha:

This is what I do to collect coins in the game. Beside the coin runs I take selfies of my buddies as I'm doing the runs. Depending on your level like mine I get once maxed a total of 150 yo points and two thousand coins (sometimes less if the neighbor room isn't fully complete). If they are online more even more coins. I watch ads better on double coins promotion tho and collecting free gifts from my neighbors. Also, I do the jobs in the suitcase icon. Dull as they maybe, I collect up to a thousand to two thousands depending on job. The party section gives you more especially the last three. Granted it require energy so I always sock up on espressos (nearing one hundred and fifty) to complete task.

I never put in my feed the pictures because I don't want it to cluster my homepage. I hit the x and still collect the coins from my selfie coin runs.

Watch the adverts especially when double coins adds up fast. I also earn them playing games at events occasionally not so much now. I sell the odd lil bit of yc if I’m desperate for a few coins or go to casino (can be a bad risk) but sometimes is a good option.
