F2P Merchanting???

Recommended Posts

Alright I need some merchanting tips. I've got a lot of seed money to invest, a little over 7mil. I'm working to get a Santa Hat or maybe a Green Hally Mask. Anyone have any tips, any would be greatly appreciated. Happy holidays to everyone. :D

 

 

 

Just so this thread won't be short lived, everyone can discuss their tips, and predictions on how the market will go. Because I know just about everyone speculates something or another in the TIF.

Wrong section first off, but secondly, if you've made 7m, why not keep doing what you've been doing?


EDIT - Signature far exceeds our sig limits but since it's so colourful you can keep it.

I'm tired of woodcutting, I'll try to reword it that way it can fit into general discussion.

People also don't usually like to give out merchanting tips...

 

 

 

Best advice I can give you, buy items low when their price is dipping and sell them when the price goes higher.

 

 

 

Honestly, it's buy low, sell high.

Yeah that's what I was afraid of merchants not wanting to give out their secrets. Going to try maybe nats or pure ess and see where I can get with it. Got like close to 7mil buying yews at minimum, doubt I'll ever get them though. :lol:

Best things to merchant in F2P would probably be God Armor, Pker items (Swordies, Lobbies, Scims, 2h's and Str Pots), and bulk runes/ore/gems/bars.

 

 

 

Check the GE Database for those things, and see if the prices are going up :lol:

I did rune plates rune 2h and rune legs. It wasn't fast but it wasn't slow. I bought at minimum when the prices were going down. I sold at max when they were going up. Nats are harder to do IMO.


Thoroughly retired, may still write now and again

F2P Merchanting went to H E double-hockey sticks after the trade restrictions. Before that, I made about 3mil standing in banks or the GE saying, 'Spending 3mil!' People would sell me their stuff at rock-bottom prices and I would sell it at rediculously high prices and wait for some rich idiot t come and buy it.

 

 

 

Best ones:

 

Bought Guthix Plate for 235k, sold for 768k.

 

Bought Str Ammy (t) for 100k, sold for 1.2mill.

Look for graphs that look like soundwaves. Those are predictable and usually happen after a big update:

 

Update -> Massive rise -> Crash back to old value -> Go back up a bit -> Down a bit -> Up a small bit -> Down a small bit -> Stabilize a bit above the old value.


Matt: You want that eh? You want everything good for you. You want everything that's--falls off garbage can

Camera guy: Whoa, haha, are you okay dude?

Matt: You want anything funny that happens, don't you?

Camera guy: still laughing

Matt: You want the funny shit that happens here and there, you think it comes out of your [bleep]ing [wagon] pushes garbage can down, don't you? You think it's funny? It comes out of here! running towards Camera guy

Camera guy: runs away still laughing

Matt: You think the funny comes out of your mother[bleep]ing creativity? Comes out of Satan, mother[bleep]er! nn--ngh! pushes Camera guy down

Camera guy: Hoooholy [bleep]!

Matt: FUNNY ISN'T REAL! FUNNY ISN'T REAL!

I tried str pots. Bought 2k and I can't even sell them at market price....

 

Depends whether they're going up, stable, or going down.

 

Crashing: Buy min, sell under market

 

Going down: buy a tiny bit above min, sell a bit under market

 

Stable: buy a bit under min, sell a bit over market

 

Going up: Buy market, sell above market

 

Going through the roof: no profit to be made.

 

 

 

This works best with armor sets because you can sell within a minute of buying, whereas for for non-set items you have to wait 4 hours.

Another tip. Invest small amount in something you're not sure of.
