There has been spark and discussion of those who still think gold farming is profitable. It is, but much more difficult than in the past. This is the opposite end of the spectrum. You can go the path of gold farmer or initially use business skills to streamline the efficiency of haggling between parties until a prominent reputation is built and you can become well off on your feet in the simplest and upmost efficient environment. The below sites are crucial for starters. Don't limit yourself to these as there are many wide openings in undervalued markets. PlayerAuctions.com - A very decent way to sell without fear of sudden scam Sythe.org - Mediation marketplace. Buy, sell and trade anything. Usually good to buy bulk requests. Powerbot.org - A niche specific marketplace for those wanting to get into arbitrage. The best way to get started is to either buy and sell all accounts listed inside a target community and funneling them elsewhere to bulk sell virtual commodities and assets. Be very wary of Powerbot as there are known scammers. Always go second unless you are using a trusted or verified middleman with little to no fees. Example 1 - Buy from Powerbot and sell at PlayerAuctions, very rarely should you sell on forums in this vertical. Example 2 - Buy 10 accounts from World of Warcraft and sell them all inside PlayerAuctions. Don't ever look back, 1 scam can kill motivation. Even playing safe can bring issues. Once you have an established reputation you can haggle with people across your local Craigslist if you like scaling. For most accounts you can make double digits whereas a rare pick can potentially do about 30-40% increase in shared output. It is easy to lose by waiting too long, especially in video gaming markets. Don't ever hold assets, the rare item stages are all over. Be careful of scammers and always find more than 1 middleman for security purposes. Load the account inside a text file and you can ship them near instantly, be sure to remove security before the end of a trade. A middleman is only necessary for forum transactions, on PlayerAuctions none are needed. Always twist for new and upcoming games and don't let fees squinze you into oblivious debt. You can lose money doing this so learn proper valuation watching trades and within a couple months you will learn what sells and what doesn't.
