    I have seen so many threads with
    "Help me make money"
    "Want to earn 1$ a day"

    It is no allowed to sell ingame items, but lets be honest who cares. The possibility of a ban is around 0.01% i would say.
    Usually the trade goes in a line where you log in, do a trade with the buyer. Give him the orbs, he gives u random stuff back. Then he transfers PayPal to you"
    And it is over, you got the money, buyer has the items.


    There is no way of failing with this method!


    This method is for people who are new to working online and is best suited for people who havent got a startup capital. Especially good for younger marketers.
    (P.S It can be twisted and made into full time income opportunity)


    If you believe this is "worthless, not worth it" please do move on to another thread.


    If you like to play a game or two from time to time this is for you. We will concentrate on Path Of Exile (The game is unique as the currency does not plummit here as it did in WoW)


    1) First what you need to do is to go to a game called Path of Exile, most of the players are hardcore players for this type of games, meaning they are willing to play big $ for items in game.
    The game is free and you can dowload it here www.pathofexile.com


    2) Make an account and get in game and play the game. You can choose Hardcore or SOftcore. Hardcore orbs cost more so it is better to start here. Dont worrie about what server you play in, all are the same with the only differense in ping. The further you get in the game the more items/orbs you will get, so reaching a high level is a must for the system to fully work.


    3) When you see orbs, it is best to put them in the stash to keep them safe. When finding Unique items or Gems, you should stash those also. Later in the game you can get gear to increase the amount of items you find.


    4) The currency here won't plummit because there is no gold, instead there are Orbs, and you need to use those to make your gear better. This means there is a constant need for them. When you die in HC you get transfered to SC, meaning to play with the big boys you need a new character = you need more orbs.


    So why "gold farm"


    1) When i started i had 0 cash and i needed something that allows me to get money fast. My CPA was pending and i was out of funds. SO i started playing the game and saw some spammers in game who sold orbs for real money. I contacted one, got scammed and lost my orbs. Well i played it and my stash had orbs in it again, this time i found a trusted buyer and sold to him, i made 52$ with my first successful sale. I continued playing and have made many more sales.


    From the money i made in a week i got


    *Hosting + 5 websites
    *Bought banner spaces + made a few PPC campaigns
    *Bought a few bots for tumblr and so
    *Got a really nice website theme


    *And i still have some left


    So as you see i only use it to fuel my other venues of interest. I am seeing good conversions from buying media but i need some more resources to get it fully rolling. It helps me to fuel some SEO campaigns and create websites. The time i would usually invest in watching some tv, i invest in the game, making some profit.


    The big question, How much can i make?


    Well it depends on how lucky you are and how good you are.


    *If you make it late game and high levels. You get some good magic find gear you can make anywhere from 100-xxx$ a day.
    *If you are starting out and are unlucky, you can go anywhere from 5$ per day
    *If you are starting and are lucky you can make a lot of money.
    Some examples of ingame items that are worth money


    the orbs are usually split this way


    1 = 2 of lower type. The lower type 1= 3 and so on. The table can be find here http://exilestats.com/ex/
    SC - SOftcore HC - Hardcore


    Exalted Orb - usually 9-10$ HC and 6-7$ SC
    Chaos orb - 50-60Cents HC and around 40cents in SC
    Alternation - 2Cents or so
    Mirror of Kalandar - this item can go anywhere from 300-750$ (can drop from any mob)


    Uniques are also expensive, usually they gor for like 10-100$ but some are sold direct for around 800$
    So everything has a price there.


    If anyone is intrested in trying it out and is looking for some guidance or a reliable person to sell to, feel free to PM me.


    Hope this helps someone :)

    Thank for the share! And by the way, can you get banned for selling in-game items? I thought that it is illegal to sell in-game items right? And do you know any other games that I could probably earn money from?

    I'm curious myself. It is forbidden in most games to sell items like that. Anyway, thanks for sharing.

    There is always the option to get banned, but it is minimal.
    Well i know people buy RuneScape, WoW, Guild Wars, Guild Wars 2 gold + many more games

    Path of Exile just seems the most profitable

    Automation is the key with this method.

    So are you stating that we could get banned by selling the in-game items in Path of Exile? I heard that in China, there are companies that are making money by selling WoW Gold, and they make a lot of cash every month.

    The likelyhood of getting banned is minimal. If you want to get banned you would have to go to ingame Gm and tell him im selling your ingame currency for real money and give him screenshots to prove it.

    How do you make the exchange? You give the item and the buyer send money on your paypal? Or there is any money auction house like in Diablo 3?

    Is it feasible to automate a bot to farm it? I'm not taking spending real time playing to hope to get a few items to sell, not to mention the countless hours building up a character.

    Indeed, the thing is there aren't too many bots around yet.

    It is possible with a good enough knowledge in coding. And as mentioned in the post, it would be good for someone who has no money nor knowledge to make it any other way.
    For many people it could be profitable, as you can make around 20-30$ per day from the start. More than 50% of the worlds countries average salaries.

    It tottally depends of the day. Well for today, i set up my ppd, cpa campaigns and have played around an hour or 2. Total would be around 15-20$ in 2h
    Just made a new character as my old one died in HC and moved to SC. Found a Divine orb from the first mob (5-6$)

    No, I meant was the money that you earn ONLY from the game, not from other sources, so how much was it? And how to you process transactions? Is it through paypal?

    If you have the coding skills to do it then yes, if not, then you have to rely on your trading skills :)

    I always do my transactions through PP because most people have it, so it is easy to set it up.
    And yes all things listed in the original post were bought from the money i made from the game

    I played PoE for a good solid couple weeks day in and day out. Finding high level orbs like Exalteds really isn't that easy. They're incredibly rare. And finding a mirror or a 6-link? Good luck.

    Also I think your prices are a little high. When the game first game out things were worth a ton, but these days the prices have dropped due to supply/demand ratios.

    Finally, I don't even want to get into how difficult it can be to get a high level hardcore character. You die once and it's over. One bad lag out can kill you and you have to restart. And softcore probably isn't even worth much.

    Anyway if you are actually making $100+/day, congratz to you, but I don't really think it's feasible for any average player.

    The prices have went down a little but they are holdin steady for a long time. The prices i gave are from a friend i know who made those sales in the past week. Softcore prices are around 20% Cheaper than HC
    And yes, the game can get hard as the difficulty levels increase. It gets challenging yet more rewarding.
    As for if it feasible or not, ill leave it to the player. But non the less, it is an opportunity for a struggeling marketer who starts out, to pay for hosting funding projects.
    As for the game itself, yes it can be hard.
