    Best practice: Item sale?

    I want to do some spring cleaning and sell many of the items I have collected over the years. The mess in my storage and appartments causes quite some headache...

    In total it's over 800 different items that have to go. Many of them are in small stacks and/or have low markup. Some of them are worth TT only, but could be interesting for collectors. Others have quite some value over TT (I own more appartments then I use, too many armor sets, etc..)

    Micromanaging them isn't my cup of tea. This probably is the reason I accumulated that many items.

    So what shall I do: Flush it all down the TT? Post a list on forum auction (I hate it though)? Or are there known and recommendable resellers?

    I might be interested in an apartment if its on planet and doesn't cost too much. Don't know much about bulk sells but i know many look out for these type of sells.

    Hi,

    I'd recommend to get a listing of your possessions via official website/ account, then process it here. Set output to CSV, import it into Calc/ Excel/ whatever, and sort by MU.

    This way you have anything that isn't worth more than trading to TT at the top of your list.

    Beware, some stuff might rise again in value. When/ if maybe some day crafting (and/ or taming, mindforce, hangars, whatever) will get a meaning, again. Might be next week, might be never. Your choice.

    With over 800 different items you shouldn't only have any stackable thing possibly, but a load of old, limited items too, that with a high propability never ever again will get any worth. I'd try to sell these to collectors.

    Feeling poor with my 476 types of items, and wishing good luck!
    Have fun!

    Id suggest talking to crafters in the various diciplines and do a bulk sale of everything thta particular crafter uses.

    After that see what is left and try a bulk sale on that..

    Finally down to few random items try the auction then as a last resrt before tt fest begins.

    If you have any 4C plates - you already have a buyer .

    Advice:if your not patient - look for seller on street. If you are patient person - post list here or (like above) in exceel sheet and also try selling it on acution in small stacks with price little above market value.

    Change your game paradigm, instead of thinking your here to kill monsters, think of it as your game to sell each item in your inventory for the most money in the least amount of time.

    Ready?
    GO!

    Sometimes I have to do this to myself to motivate myself to do things I don't want to do

    Since 1,5 year there has only be one way the prices went and that is down. With current state of the game, I don't expect them to rise in value ever again.
    My currency has fallen a lot compared to the $, so the losses won't be big.

    Yeah, that's the items that cause me the most heasche. It just seems wrong to TT these (useless) ul guns, cloths, etc.
    bufidningcollectors fro each of thse items is very time consumeing.

    Doing some spring cleaning too, have sold a lot of junk last few weeks.

    Since I want it to be over as quickly as possible, I have:

    1. Looked for orders on auction on common stuff
    2. Sold all my small resource stacks in bulk to lebanner and got a nice price
    3. Check auction history, and current items on auction and make a decision if
    3a. there is any interest in the item at all (will it likely sell within one week)
    3b. will I get more then 1 ped on a successful sale?
    3c if so, put it up with a price I feel confident it will sell for.
    4. possibly put up a few higher-value items on EF (havn't dont this yet)
    5. if not caught above, TT it... its just pixels and since it wasn't caught above, it has no value above the TT and it doesn't make sense to put in a lot of work for a few ped/pec extra. I've TT:ed a lot :P


    Have no idea if its good practice though, but thats how I do it :P
