How to Create a Tiered Presale on CookieSale

Tiered Presale Explained

A Tiered Presale lets you divide a standard presale into 2 or 3 tiers. Each tier has its own allocated amount, maximum buy, and duration that you can set.

How-to Guide

This step-by-step guide will show you how to create a Tiered Presale with CookieSale. This guide has been formulated for the use with a Metamask wallet on desktop.

✴️ Field Details

Presale Rate: This indicates the amount of tokens an investor will receive per 1 BNB contributed to your presale. Bare in mind, the presale rate is typically higher than the listing rate. In other words, they should receive more tokens per 1 BNB spent in the presale than they would receive per 1 BNB spent at the listing price.

To determine you presale rate, establish the amount of tokens you wish to allocate towards your presale (ex. 20% of your total supply). Take that token amount and divide it by the hardcap you're setting to determine the presale rate. Visit the presale calculator for more details.
Listing Rate: This indicates the amount of tokens an investors will receive per 1 BNB contributed relative to the initial liquidity pool. This rate is typically lower than the presale rate.
If "Whitelist" is selected, you will have to option to add specific addresses to each tier. You will also have the option to select "CookieSale Admin" which adds the wallet address from the Cookie Token to give you an additional pool of active investors.
Softcap (Native Blockchain Token): The soft cap is the bare minimum of BNB, ETH, MATIC, AVAX or wDOGE (depending on your blockchain) that needs to be raised in order to finalize a presale. Note that the amount must be 50% of the hard cap.
Hardcap (Native Blockchain Token): The hard cap is the maximum amount of BNB, ETH, MATIC, or AVAX (depending on your blockchain) that can be raised for the presale. Once the hardcap is reached, investors will no longer be able to contribute and will have to purchase upon listing on a DEX.
Currency Pair: Select the currency you'd like you token to be paired against. Keep in mind that the volatility of the native currency (ie. BNB) will reflect in your own token. For more stability, choose a stablecoin.
Minimum and Maximum Buy (Native Blockchain Token): This is the minimum and maximum amount of the native blockchain token that an investor is able to contribute per wallet address. The minimum buy will apply to all tiers whereas the maximum will only apply to the FINAL tier.
Liquidity (%): Enter the percentage of raised funds that are to be allocated to liquidity on PancakeSwap (or subsequent router for the appropriate blockchain). The minimum value is 51% and the maximum is 100%.
Liquidity (%): Enter the percentage of raised funds that are to be allocated to liquidity on PancakeSwap (or subsequent router for the appropriate blockchain). The minimum value is 51% and the maximum is 100%.
Liquidity Lockup (days): Lock-up time in days for liquidity pool.

Router: You will have Router options depending on the blockchain the token is being traded on. For the BSC, PancakeSwap is the standard selection.
Unsold Tokens: The available options are ‘Refund’ or ‘Burn’. This is in regards to the tokens allocated for the presale that are purchased (ie. 10% of hardcap amount not filled). If ‘Refund’ is selected, the tokens refunded will be put back into supply. If ‘Burn’ is selected, the tokens refunded will be sent to the Burn Address.
Start and End Time (UTC): This is the date and time to which your Presale will start and end.
How Many Tiers: Select the amount of Tiers you want your presale to have (options for 2 or 3).
Individual Tier Data: You have the option to select between Public, Owner, or CookieSale for each tier. Owner will give you the power to add/remove whitelist addresses for that specific tier. Selecting "CookieSale" will forego you're ability to add or remove addresses and will auto add addresses from the Cookie Token contract.
Selecting CookieSale will give you direct exposure to a group of external investors actively looking for new projects to invest in
For each tier you must input the following:
  • Allocation: input the allocation amount you wish to have for each tier.
  • Max Buy: input the Max Buy you wish to have for each tier.
  • Length (minutes): input the length of that tier in minutes. Keep in mind that you can advance to the next tier whenever you'd like.
The Final Tier will automatically calculate the Allocation Amount and Length relative to the previous tiers and the data input at the beginning.
Example: Total presale allocation amount is 300 BNB. You've selected a 3 Tiered Presale with 50 BNB allocated to each of the first two tiers. The remaining allocation for the final tier will be 200 BNB, with the Length being the the remaining time of the end selected minus the length first two tiers.

Any allocated amount not filled in the first tiers will spill over to the final tier. For example, if Tier 1 only fills 75 of 100 BNB allocated, the remaining 25 BNB allocation will be added to the final tier.

Step 5: Additional Info
This is where you can enter in your website, logo, and social media information. After inputting the necessary information select 'Next'.
Please note that your logo and banner URLs must end in .jpg, .png, or .gif to display correctly. If you’re using an external image hosting site (ex. imgur, postimg, googledrive, etc), make sure to copy the image address (ending in .jpg, .png, or .gif) and paste that into the logo section. Visit Update Launchpad for Logo and Banner spec details.

A summary of your Launchpad details will be presented here. Take the time to review and confirm all information is correct. You can go back and change any data if need be. Select ‘Submit’ once confirmed.
Air dropping tokens and enabling trading before your contract is live can leave it vulnerable for anyone to add LP. Keep this in mind and check before activating your Launchpad to prevent issues when finalizing your presale. If LP has been added prior, you will have to cancel your presale and redeploy your contract. You should be in control of the entire token supply prior to listing your presale.
