Buy Vend Token on PancakeSwap
Step 1: Click on this link. If this link does not work, go to Step 3, otherwise, continue with the next step.
Step 2: A warning screen will prompt you. Click “I understand” and “Import”. Go to Step 6.
Step 3: Go to pancakeswap.finance and click on “Trade” and a drop down menu will appear. Click on “Exchange”.
Step 4: Press “Select a currency”. In “Search name or paste address”, you want to copy and paste the VEND contract address
Step 5: Press “Import” after you see the Vend token/coin. After pressing “Import”, you will be prompted with a warning from PancakeSwap. Press “I understand” followed by the “Import” button again.
Step 6: Before we swap for Vend, we must change the “Slippage Tolerance”. Press on the “Settings” button.
Step 7: Under “Slippage Tolerance”, set it to 13%. After setting it to 13%, click on the “x” to exit the settings. The reason it is 13% is due to our tokenomics and defensive measures against frontrunning bots.
CAUTION: If you set it to anything less than 13%, the transaction will fail!
Step 8: You can now swap BNB or whichever coin you desire for the VEND token/coin!
NOTE: Remember to press “Swap” and then “Confirm Swap”. A transaction will be submitted and it will prompt you if it was successful or not. If the price is volatile due to constant price changes, you can always increase the “Slippage Tolerance” to increase your chance of a successful transaction.
