    Stamp Buying Help

    Alright, so honestly, I've never AB'd before.

    I would gladly buy VIP to get the AB if only I could figure out the answers to these questions.

    The reason why I want to start in the Stamp Shop is that I have a 5 year old shell, and it seems to restock fast and give large profits occasionally.

    Yes, I could spent 30 minutes looking for all of my answers on different threads, but I'd prefer 1 answer on 1 thread.

    Questions:

    What does profit mean? I know what it literally means, but what time is the profit for? Every day?

    I have a list for stamps, but could someone supply me with one so that I can compare and choose one? (I honestly have enough NP to support any list)

    What would a good buy time he for stamps? I've heard a lot of people AB there but it restocks often.

    How long should I AB for in a single session? I've read 1-2 hours in several places due to the profit that could be made.


    Thanks for reading, looking forward to your opinions/answers!

    What does profit mean? I know what it literally means, but what time is the profit for? Every day? Profit is generally referring to net profit(so if you AB a 100k item for 30k you have a profit of 70k)
    I have a list for stamps, but could someone supply me with one so that I can compare and choose one? With stamp, I like anything above 5k profit, so use JN or NC to make a list . If you're only after UBs there's a list around here somewhere ^_^.
    What would a good buy time he for stamps? I've heard a lot of people AB there but it restocks often. 3000ms+
    How long should I AB for in a single session? I've read 1-2 hours in several places due to the profit that could be made. 2 hours is good with breaks between so you're not RS banned too easily; also be careful with your delay ^_^

    Sorry I know I was vague, I was asking what people meant when they gave a list and said "Profit 100k" and nothing else.

    Profit is the amount you'll get minus the cost you paid for it.

    There are many lists available on this site. Here's a link.
    http://clraik.com/forum/showthread.p...r-Lists!/page7

    Buy times should be above 3 seconds. However you might not be able to snag the good stuff if there's some idiot setting his buy times to less than that. It's a give or take thing, either be safe and have steady profits or risky it for higher profits.

    The Stealth ABer has a function that allows for multiple account AB-ing, hence you should be fine even if you AB 20 hours per day. Accounts are switched so that you won't be refreshing on RS banned accounts.

    What would a good buy time he for stamps? I've heard a lot of people AB there but it restocks often.

    Depends to be honest, I usually have to have buy times less than 2500ms to hit anything decent there. Although in honest with buy times of 1500ms I've never got a stamp valued at anything more than about 400k.

    With 1 account on it's own I can probably make average 500k-1m in stamp before it's RS banned. But that's mostly in buyable stamps around 99k mark and the odd 2-300k'er.
