contact_support Float a demand on the Demandic Ocean
On "the Demandic Ocean" page, tap the "+" button to create a new demand (*1).
Simply say or write what you want and type the desired price. Use the map to specify areas where you want to send your demand. Then tap the send button.
Sellers may need to know your gender and age for certain products, like clothing. You can display your gender and/or generation in the User field. Specify whether you show them or not with the switches before pressing the send button. If you want to buy for somebody else, you can note their gender and age in the "What is your want or problem?" field to help sellers.
Your demand will be published on the Demand Ocean after being checked by other users (mutual checking) to prevent inappropriate use. In addition, your demand is immediately sent to sellers who have shops in the area you specified on the map and whose receivers match your demand. Specify areas to send with the map.
- A square area :: Touch the map and you will see a square. Widen or shrink the square using the four handles on the square.
- Address areas :: Touch the map, choose an address from proposals. You can specify multiple address areas.
The most effective way to resolve the economic gap is to control your demands yourself and avoid concentrating them anywhere(*2). Demandic helps you to do that. If buyers (any purchasers) distribute demands using Demand shift! or something like that, we can expect that inequality of income will be reduced and employment will be increased. Even though each demand is small, the net effect will be big enough to change the world. Read about Demand shift! near the map and use it as often as possible. If you live in a city, you can assign your demands to the surrounding areas.
Sellers find your demand on the Demandic Ocean or receive it with their receivers. If they want to sell to you, they make entries to your demand. If the number of sellers is large, the H-Market server selects sellers at random up to the number you specified on the demand. A seller can make an entry to do a session from any place or country.
Although buying from a shop outside your region may be convenient for you in the short term, your local shops may go out of business and your regional economy may suffer in the long term. If you want to encourage your local shops, check \"Restrict entry area\" above the map, and you can limit sessions with sellers to the area you specified on the map. Use the restriction to accumulate money locally, and your local economy should prosper and incomes should increase.
If you want to have consulting sessions with sellers in the area you specified or encourage local shops and domestic industry, check \"Restrict entry area\". If you don't check it, sellers in any country are allowed to make entries and have sessions with you. In that case, while you could buy things not found locally, you cannot grow local sellers.
[IMPORTANT] Because we are operating money from some sponsors and donations from individuals, our server is small. If you specify a large area or many areas in the map, the server will be overloaded.
To add currencies and languages to choices, choose some more currencies and languages in advance on the "User's basic information" page.
If you don't get a quick response to your demands, please invite sellers you know to join Demandic.
Tapping the menu button at the top left corner of the screen shows the project menu.
Tapping the D button right to the menu button brings you back to the Demandic Ocean page.
chat Wait for sellers and start consultation sessions
Tap "Project" in the "All Project" buttons to see demands in the current project.
Sellers who want to sell to you make entries to your demand. You can view information about your demand in the status section.
Tap PROFILE buttons to confirm their public profiles or view their addresses and policies.
[Note] Be aware that a seller may access you from another country, while you thought it was a neighbor seller. Unless you set the \"Restrict entry area\", anyone can make an entry from anywhere in the world! Read the profiles and Thanks! messages and choose sellers for sessions. You don't need to have sessions with all sellers.
If you are all right, tap one or more "SESSION" button to open consultation sessions (chat). Start consultations.
star_border Compare proposals and Buy
Have fun in the session or visit the seller. Demandic does not provide payment function now. consult with the store to pay at the seller's website or at their shop.
Be very careful of fraudulent sales during a consultation session. It is safer to use an open session where the conversation is published. The buyer should decline if the seller's price is significantly higher than the market price plus the cost of the session. Sellers must not force purchases or offer such prices. Especially, don't buy or sell expensive masks!
favorite Send a Thanks! message
After buying, send Thanks! messages to say thanks. Next time you can send a demand to the seller by specifying their D-address. The numbers of received Thanks! as a buyer, demands, purchases, and opened sessions are visible to others as you and your organization's achievement.
star_border Demand shift! for inequality and global warming(*3)
Inequality is that money doesn't flow smoothly to the people who need it. When we place demands on the map, if we scatter them on more people (and avoid concentration), they will get more money. That increases economic activity and improves the overall economy. When the economy improves, everyone's income increases.
There are many demands in a city, but not so many outside the city. The chance to flow money is there!! If you can, place your demands so as to shift them away from cities.
For example, if you live in the east part of the city, just place your demand, to find a plumber for example, a bit further east. How easy is that!? People in the east shift their demands further east. People in the west shift further west, and so on.
You just placed a demand a bit further east. That allows you to find a near plumber and to cooperate with others to shift income opportunities toward the periphery of the city like a bucket brigade. If the suburbs is richer than the city, distribute demands to the city, too. That results low cost and low CO2 emission for transportation to visit you.
If you repeat that for anything possible, overcrowding (slumification) of cities will gradually be eased, and employment in the provincial area will increase.
Another Demand shift! is the time shift. Because shops usually don't want to loose opportunities, they staff employees and equipment for peak times. During off-peak hours, their precious resources are not utilized well. So, just float demands when they have time, rainy days for example, if possible. It's a win-win because the shops have more time for you.
