how to price items

Postby Avery Aries (123769672) » Wed Oct 24, 2018 5:26 pm

I have looked and tried to find answers in previous posts but couldn't find the answer for my pricing dilemma at least that was a current price guide. I watch people really go outrageously high in their prices even with in store items. For example I saw the black cat that is in store and costs less than 5000 i think not sure, anyways the sold in AH for 29000 and the funny thing is that this game is supposed to be fun not a sanction for greedy price gougers. I want to be fair in my pricing but what is fair as far as coin items in store or old items that are coin. Also what is the $ to C rate. I tried to sell items in the trade auction area but the same people that raise prices are cheap and that's why need a guide to help me i may be an old player from the early days but recently started playing again and never wanted sell anything to anyone. Please help Me. I
want to continue playing.
Sincerely,
Aries :wailing: :heartbroken: :?:

I have noticed the same thing. Prices in AH are outrageous. Like you, I can't figure the C to $ ratio, It seems to have gotten worse this year. Fingers crossed that one of the moderators answers!!

Back in the day buying and selling items for profit was the most popular and about the only way to make profit. it worked then because you had a good amount of people that actually wanted to buy items. If you just have people buying items so that they can sell them, It is going to be harder because they want to buy it for cheap. People back in the day didn't always make a profit sometimes they lost on their investment. Overtime I thinlk people got very very very persistant and firm with prices and they are now detirmend that they wont lose on their investment. I see people trying to sell one item for a month and they spend housr a day doing it. I wonder if it is really worth it but they seem to think so. People will just do that so it will seem like they are price jacking and they probably are. There is no real answer to your queastion, There are just so many items and it wildly depends on the item. you can still buy and sell stuff now, but it will be harder. There are also a lot of greedy people. This part of the game helped me in real life make descisions. I failed to make profit back in the day but I still learned a lot from it. A lot of items in the game now are not wanted. You might get confused at ypoash rates because of this. worthless yo cash items won't apply with the current yocash exange rate because no one wants items that suck. The items that are wanted will be jacked up as high as possible because there is a demand for them. Auction house is a friend for buying and selling for profit. At this day and age it is about your only hope in making profit if you don't want to sit at a sale for an hour. there are less people in the game now and most of them are seeking profit. I am not saying you do this, but Don't let the coin feature ruin you fun in this game. This game can be about making money for you, but you can also have this game be about making descisions. some wll be good and some will be less good. when you aren't doing well with trading feature in the game you can always use the social side of the game. I am sorry but I can't remember how much of your post was about people being greedy and not really what I talked about. People will be greedy and I have watched it grow over the years. just be yourself and be an example. don't let greedy people lose your fun in this game. don't worry about them just be your best self and make descisions.
