    Hello people.
    I am new here and inexperienced. Sorry if I am posting this at the wrong place. I really like this forum. When I'm driving with a bus to work I always can find a good read here to kill time :) There are a lot of methods posted here on how to make money online. Most of them are about creating some kind of an affiliate website. To be honest I do not like those methods. They are not for me. I do not mind a hard work, but I simply need something different. This post will not be about personal journey or some magical method. I just want to ask something. Maybe some of you guys have some experience on this topic.
    So I know a guy and he says that he is making additional money from Runescape. He is selling ingame gold to other people. He is making ~200$ per month. At least that's what he says. I never tried that game. I know what type of game it is, but I never tried it. My question is, is it actually possible to make money from this game or from other? Because it looks like a quite fun way to have an additional source of income.

    Runescape used to be littered with bots (when I played as a child - 21 now).

    I'm sure it's still the same way, and maybe even worse; if you don't have the right bots to earn enough gold, you won't even be a competitor when it comes to in-game selling.

    I've sold a lot of video game currencies in my time, mainly because they all (most of them) use a lot of lottery-based stuff to give out items now. You get lucky once, sell it for the virtual currency and then convert it into real money!

    He said that he developed a high level character and he is fighting in some kind of arena with other players. Rules are that for example he is placing 20 millions on a fight and another player the same amount. Winner takes 40 millions. This is how he is making ingame gold and then selling that gold to other players.

    It's called staking but it's a 50-50 chance to win or lose, besides you gotta have some startup cash and a good staking character. You can't just storm the castle with zero knowledge on this.

    have a look around sythe.org

    Although you could grind in-game gold by yourself and later sell it, I find that creating gold buying/selling service would be more profitable.
    E.g. buy gold from other people for 0.9$/1mil and sell 1.1$/mil.

    Downsides of doing so is that you need to build an authority in relevant forums first and there are always scammers around so you need to watch out for them.
    Good luck.

    I used to play runescape like 5 years ago and it was the best game out there. To me the game is so bad now and ruined

    You can sell products and make money amazon.

    It called affilias marketing.

    I'm not sure the website you mentioned, you should check out the reviews on google before joining affiliate networks

    I earned my first scooter(1100 euro) with merching on Runescape, lol. This is like 7 years ago only. I made about 400-500 a month, untill i got bored of it. Was mostly selling to people in my school and mouth to mouth people would come to my house with a laptop and i trade the gold for cash. This was when G.E was easy to manipulate, don't know how it is now.

    Making money from games is just as possible as making money online through affiliate marketing.
    It's harder since you typically need to grind your way to very high levels to gain access to things people are willing to trade money for. It's no way worth it unless you have bots. Then you have to worry not to be banned and lose everything. There are other forums revolving around botting popular games.
    You need to frame affiliate marketing as a game and you'll reach much more success than trying to make money playing video games.

    If you want to get anywhere with Runescape, dueling is the money making king. Just buy a high lvl account and buy some starting gold... something like 20mil should be fine. Go to the dueling arena and start fist fighting..... nothing more. There was a guy making enough money dueling to buy a new house and a fancy sports car...

    Easiest way to make money is merch. Merching can also cause you a lot of risks. Never leave a merch on over night. Always watch your merch.

    And this is how you merch.
    (Open notepad to write all your prices down)
    Buy the item for Highest, Copy the price down on notepad
    Sell the item for lowest, copy the price down on notepad
    Now you have your buy/sell price. What you do is buy the item for the price you sold your item, and sell it for the price you bought it. simple eh?

    Botting isn't the same as before but you can still make money off it! Couple months ago I had 6 Accounts running with a premium script and no proxies and I was making around $160 a week with minimum effort. If you find a method that isn't flooded with bots you can last longer!

    @Weeper also had a good point about reselling but you'd need to have a good authority on those forums to be able to sell. If you have irl friends that play and want gold you can milk them lol.
