The Problem With BDO's Marketplace- Stop Listing scarce items For Their Minimum Price!

26 posts in this topic

Posted

 

When you list an item, look at how many past sales there are and how many items are currently listed. If there's a ton sold before but few listed, just list it for max price! You make more money that way! By constantly listing items that are scarce for minimum price the max price stays low for way too long and items are never available for purchase. See the video for the full explanation.

Great way to promote inflation, noob.

In a game where you make several 100k or even millions a day simply by fishing hotspots while market prices are fixed by Lenin 2.0 algorithm? ... no, not rly :/

 

To answer to the topic, I find it very irritating ppl posting/listing items by several pieces. I had to buy some 100 copper divided into 1-3 pcs to get to 500pcs batch bellow.

With security codes and stuff it is very time consuming stuff, why can't we simply buy which-ever one we want? game is quite commie making us buy only lowest priced at the time.

I always list at lowest price so I can sell it faster and make sure mine gets sold first before others.

If anything it's annoying that the highest price an item can sell for isn't larger than a 30% margin... meaning prices for an item can only ever go downwards.

I think there is an upper/lower hard limit to items. Fishing ships are still exactly 1.5mill for max price. Even if people were stupid enough to list for minimum price when there is no supply there surely should have been some movement in the value.

I do the same haha!! But only on items where there are too many, rarer items I usually sell at the max at some point.

From my understanding of the marketplace, no matter whether you set min or max, the prices are determined by supply and demand, so even if I undercut everyone, the only thing happening here is I am selling my product before yours. I am not changing the supply and demand, that is determined by how many items are being sold compared to how many are being bought. If someone has any more knowledge on this.. please do tell.

And just because you dont see an item in the market place does not mean it is not being sold, if it is a highly valued item it will be listed and sold before you'll know it was there. This DOES NOT MEAN, that supply is low!! It only means that the demand is greater.

I agree with OP.

The people that are against maximum price listing are just poor. Git rich scrubs.

There is, that is correct. However, a lot of items on my server such as rough stone, wheat, potatoes, and logs aren't anywhere near the hard limit, because morons keep listing them for minimum price. The result is that they get sniped instantly and nobody ever lists them because they aren't worth much.

Items that are in a surplus like iron ore should be listed for minimum price. Scarce items like wheat, potatoes, etc where there's hardly any listings should be listed for max price.

I've seen people list their shit at minimum price when there wasn't any item available on the market. Instant facedesk.

And I'm sure that's the same guys that wants "player trading" because they can't find what they want on the market...
