    Shell trading ideas

    I buy a lot of shells whenever I can, some i use to store ABed items, some just use them to AB, but i freeze them sometimes, mostly when i feel that they are compromised or i just transfer items to my main.

    long story short, i bet a lot of people are in need of shells from time to time, but it's frustrating not knowing where to get one (PM people asking, posting on thread, reading threads, etc etc)

    could we have a simpler shell trading thread (stickied) where we could all go to shop? 'Post here if you have shells to sell' kinda thing.

    the idea is that someone (i'd volunteer) will be in charge of storing and updating information (who has shells, how many they have and selling) into the first page of the thread. Then anyone who comes to want to purchase will be able to contact the person directly?

    what do you guys think?

    It's easy enough to find sellers in neo trading. There's no need for a specific thread for all shell sales. If the forum was to do this they would also make a separate section for np sales and others. It works best when everything is in one big neo trading section.

    Wouldn't the simpler solution be to just find a supplier? There are people with literally thousands of shells to unload.

    I'd like it, I've been through that situation where I've had a bit of trouble finding shells, also if they're all in the same place people would have an easier time comparing prices

    You can always search "shells" in the search bar on top and look at the neo trading threads.

    If you're going to get a good deal on a bulk pack of shells, it should be because you were in the right place at the right time or because you looked hard for it rather than just coming across it in a compiled shell thread o_o

    Additionally, that would be a race to the bottom. Just imagine if you had a compiled Neopoints selling thread where everyone was trying to outbeat the prices of the poster above them.

    That would be great, I guess you're a seller lol. If neopoints were cheaper on this forum than on others maybe a good amount of new people might join

    Cheaper than $1.75-$2.00/million?

    I highly doubt the reason "more people aren't joining" is because Neopoints are too expensive.

    If prices for everything were dirt cheap all sellers would leave this forum and there would be no market here at all. No one wants to sell stuff for next to nothing. Prices are already too deflated as it is.

    Who did you quote saying "more people aren't joining"? I don't know where that came from... I was simply trying to say that if neopoints are cheaper on this site than on another site, people might be more willing to come over here because of the neopoints and staying for all the other cool stuff this site has to offer. Carrot has a good point though
