The Most Popular Type of Wood
Are you farming some materials to sell them? If yes, you are able to check which one is the most in-demand first. How to do this? You are able to go to the market board and then click on the type of material that you are trying to sell. After that, you have to order the list of materials by demand.
It is important for you to know that the sorting only can work for the current 100 items. So, you may want to do it again on other pages and then check how often an item sold. You need to note that being high demand does not mean that the item is sold very often.
The Right Price for My Item
If you sell an item at half the price of the competition, then it is called ‘undercutting’. We can say that it is not a good idea. Even though you are able to sell your item quicker, but you will lose a lot of profit that you should get. Also, it can create chances for the competition. You have to think that someone may buy your item that you sell at a low price, but then he will sell it again at a higher price.
So, a good thing that you have to do to be on top of the market board is to decrease the price of the item by one. By doing this, you will get the most of your items while avoiding the competition.
It is important for you to note that you are able to check the price of the similar item in high quality and then you can put a higher price if there is no one who is currently selling the High Quality version for it.
