The AMC Buyback Spreadsheet is based on the EVE IVY Mining Op worksheet created by Scrapyard Bob.

It is used to request an ore/ice/gas "Buyback" within the AMC Buyback Service and from an FC while running a mining op.

Service Infomation

This service lets you sell your ore, gas and ice directly from the AMC home system and the surrounding area. The Buyback service offers a higher pay out than a new player would otherwise get without significant skills and standings, benefiting from both the higher value of the refined materials along with the prices in Jita, where we sell them - not to mention the logistics of moving it.

The fee for this service is 4% of the refined value of the ore, ice and gas submitted, which is automatically deducted from the corresponding Jita-buy prices by the spreadsheet, so you don’t need to work it out.

The AMC Buyback has a recommended minimum of 25,000,000 ISK and a maximum of 5,000,000,000 ISK per personal Buyback contract.


IMPORTANT: The campus will only accept buyback contracts issued from Shemah - The Ore Question in Shemah; Hoona - The Omber Menace in Hoona; and from any NPC station in systems up to 5 jumps from HQ other than Shemah, plus Dantan.

Buyback Spreadsheet

Instructions

Some brief instructions about how to prepare a personal Buyback at AMC, and how to maintain the spreadsheet during a mining op, are given below.

It's recommended to have the Contracting skill trained up to at least Level 1 to be able to have more than one outstanding contract submitted at a given time.


Filling the spreadsheet for personal Buyback

Prepare the spreadsheet

  1. Go to the current version.
  2. Log into your Google account.
  3. Open the file menu and select "Make a Copy".
  4. Name it following this convention. For Personal use: "Your Name (DATE)" - e.g. Jefferson Spence (2014/11/18)

Work on the spreadsheet

  1. Make sure the ore/ice/gas that you'd like to submit is stacked.
  2. On the Paste Inventory tab, select cell A4, and copy and paste these from your in-game inventory.
    The "Icons" view in your inventory will not work for this. You need to use the "Details" or "List" view.

Submit the Buyback

Follow the section Submit the spreadsheet below.

Using the spreadsheet in a shared can mining operation

While running a mining op the participation of the fleet members needs to be tracked in the sheet.

Before the operation

  1. Go to the current version.
  2. Log into your Google account.
  3. Open the file menu and select "Make a Copy".
  4. Name it following this convention. For Shared Can use: "SHARED CAN - FC-Name (DATE)" - e.g. SHARED CAN - Jefferson Spence (2014/11/18)
  5. Go to the top right of the spreadsheet and click on the "Share" button to open sharing settings. Change it from private to "Anyone with the link can view".
  6. Make sure haulers know what station you want the ore delivered to, and who to contract the ore to after the op.

During the operation

  1. Keep up with filling in the participation sheet with the start and stop times for each participant.
  2. You must use a station within 5 jumps of home, and when possible try to use an AMC structure (i.e. belonging to Ivy League AMC Holdings).
  3. Per AMC policy everyone involved in the op should be 1.00 shared weight no matter their role unless they voluntarily agree to less.

After the operation

  1. At the end of the operation have all ore contracted to the Fleet Commander (or whoever will be submitting the buyback contract).
  2. Make sure all the ore/ice/gas mined during the Shared Can is stacked.
  3. On the Paste Inventory tab, select cell A4, and copy and paste these from the in-game inventory.
    The "Icons" view in your inventory will not work for this. You need to use the "Details" or "List" view.
  4. Add any additional raw ISK to the ExtraISK tab if you had sold any salvage or modules from rats, received a cash donation, or had to pay an external freighter such as Red Frog Freight.
  5. Double check that all the participation information is correct and make sure to thank all those who participated in the op.

Submit the Buyback

Follow the section Submit the spreadsheet below.

After the Buyback is completed

  1. As soon as the Buyback is completed and paid out, you need to pay the fleet members.
  2. Open your spreadsheet again and go to the Participation tab.
  3. Start to transfer the values in the "Payout (ISK)" column to the fleet members, and mark them accordingly in the "Paid?" column.
  4. It is recommended to send out an EVE Mail to the fleet members as soon as you've done all the after work, including the payout.

Submit the spreadsheet

Before you submit the Buyback you'll need to fix the current market prices into the spreadsheet, so that they won't be updated anymore. This is done in the second step below:

  1. Change to the Inventory tab.
  2. Select "Finalize Buyback" in the Buyback Menu.
  3. Share the spreadsheet (i.e. click the Share button in the upper right corner of the spreadsheet, then "Get shareable link").
  4. Create a contract to Ivy League AMC Holdings with the applicable ore, ice and gas.
  5. Set the contract amount in the field "you will receive" to the amount shown in cell G1 of the Inventory sheet.
  6. There is no 6.
  7. Paste the spreadsheet key in the Description field of the contract:
    (The field located between ""/d/*****/edit#"". See the image below.)
    Finding the spreadsheet key
  8. Set the contract for 4 weeks expiration, then click finalize the contract.
  9. Wait to get paid.

Reasons for your contract to be declined

  • The prices were updated and no longer match between the contract and the spreadsheet.
  • The value and/or quantities do not match between the contract and the spreadsheet.
  • The contract was issued from a station more than 5 jumps away from the AMC home system without the approval of an AMC Officer. The only exceptions to the 5 jump rule are Dantan and Hoona.
  • The contract was not submitted from an NPC station or one of the Ivy League structures.
  • The contract was submitted in the home system from a station or structure other than Shemah - The Ore Question.
  • The submission did not come via a Google Docs spreadsheet.

AMC Buyback Best Practices

The following best practices keep the Buyback volunteers happy and keep your payback waiting time to a minimum:

  • The AMC Buyback has a recommended minimum of 25,000,000 ISK and a maximum of 5,000,000,000 ISK per personal Buyback contract.
  • When you submit your buyback contract, make sure that the key from your spreadsheet is included in the contract description.
  • Only one personal contract per person, per system, per day.
  • Do not create a contract for ore/ice/gas inside a container.
  • If possible, please compress the ore and ice in advance to make it easier for our hauling operations.
