I'm not going to go through all the posts in this thread cause I'm on my iPod and I don't have much time but anyone that ever buys game items knows to hit the button to sort by unit price. razz

it's the invisible hand of the Gaia market razz

they can sell feathers for whatever they want. you're not losing anything by selling them for 500g a piece.


lol i know. but i am losing something from it razz
time.

you would understand if you knew about my guild and such

and it wouldnt have bothered me much if it just happened once and moved on.

but it was like as if 20 or 30 people got together and was like "Lets troll the marketplace"

This is the case with pretty much every item on the mp. Deal with it. emotion_dealwithit

If you think 700 is too cheap, you could simply buy them all and then try to sell them again for whatever you think a better price is.

But I'd be careful about conspiring among your guild mates to control the prices, and using threads like this to shame people from undercutting your price. I don't know about the Gaia marketplace, but that's illegal on most real markets.

Competitive pricing. Sell more bulk so they pay more for convience rather than buying 50 feathers separately.
Psychology:
50(a1...a2...a3) x 700 = __k + 1/2 hour
Or
250 x 700 = __k + 30 seconds

Okay, so lately in the marketplace, ive been noticing people have been "spam selling" 1 feather like 10 times each .-.
im unsure if it was like. conspiracy.
or if it just happened all at once.

but seriously it got annoying really fast.
for a while the entire first 2 pages of flamingo feathers were all listings of 1 feather for like 700 gold (approximately).

that means anyone selling feathers, in order to get your post to show up on the first page, you would have to go under 700 gold per feather (which is very underpriced), or else the buyer has to scroll through pages to find yours.


So my message to anyone who is "spamming the marketplace with 1 cheap feather"...
Either sell ur feathers at that price all in one bundle, or dont sell them at all .-.
please and thanks

Sincerely

The whole point is to make money. That's how they make money. You just kinda of have to ignore it. People won't stop making money just because it annoys you <3

Just stop buying feather... Farm your own, making it so less people buy them, kill the feather market once and for all... emotion_dowant
