    So you know there are a lot of chineese gold farmers.
    There are companies hiring xxx chineese guys to farm gold.
    You can find them on google/niche forums. Just see these prices = cheap as hell.
    Go to ebay and start your reseller journey. I remember few years ago I used to make money with Knight Online mmmorpg.
    Dollar was cheap, so i paid $3 to get 100 milion golds. Then i sold it for $10. Then i bought more... busted my character and had fun playing and earning nice cash.
    Now after time there are many guys farming on their own, but there are new games where gold can be expensive. Just make some research, here is my working idea.
    Thanks

    Cool idea. Many farmers sell gold cheaper when you buy in bulk, so queue up a few orders, buy big and make even more money!

    this idea was working before and will work as long as there are die hard gamers around the world, which means its not gonna dead ever.
    There is so much potential in this Gaming niche.

    That depends on what game you are talking about. A quick google search "______ gold for sale" should bring up a multitude of results.

    In order for this work, you will need to have an active account for that game as well. I mean how else are you suppose to give out the gold. To sum it up on the idea this probley what you need to do, correct me if I am wrong.

    1. Have an active account on say World of Warcraft
    2. Find gold sellers, "google gold for sale world of warcarft"
    3. Buy gold from the seller
    4. Sell on Ebay, marking up the price a bit
    5. Sold on Ebay, get character name to transfer the gold
    6. Login your character and transfer the gold
    7. Done.

    There are many companies with reputation. Just search, order small amount for $5, and go up.

    Yes, its easy. But there are free games too, you can also find someone to outsource this part.
    Make a website, rank it, and get someone to manage it. Then you have passive income ✓✓✓

    That's always gonna be a risk, find one that looks reputable.

    That's if you wanted to become a gold farmer. This method involves simple reselling, buy gold and sell it higher, which is much preferable to being a farmer.

    Runescape ($0.36-$0.40 per million gold - Or RSGP)
    Diablo 3 ($0.20+ per million gold) - Diablo 3 actually has an in game auction house which allows you to sell gold/items and the company - Blizzard - takes a cut.
    WoW ($1.20+ per 1000 gold)

    - Runescape is actually free to play, it is a browser based game so no download required and then there is a monthly option to pay for extra content.
    - Diablo you have to pay for the game so if your account gets banned for "real world trading" (outside of the real money auction house) you would have to re-purchase a new license key
    - WoW, You have to start off by buying the game and then a monthly subscription.

    Another method is to buy items during specific times of the year, example: Runescape Partyhats: Current price 1.1Billion gold. so around $400 (and yes, people buy these all the time) 30 day change shows a 33% increase, buy before Christmas sell just after.

    I have experience in this method and what i would say to do is purchase your gold off of players as opposed to the websites you see advertised. Look for forums with "Blackmarkets" Buy off of one forum, sell to another

    I'd suggest making money with Diablo 3 if you're into playing MMORPGs. It has a real money auction house, and I heard that items there can reach prices up to $ 150...

    If you don't mind Blizzard taking a 15% cut and then paypal another 15% off of that to transfer it into your account then yeah sure.

    I used to be big into doing this. Had 50 computers playing around 500 ultima online accounts. I also had a bunch playing dark age of camelot, auto powerleveling up characters for resale.

    Some years ago, guessing around 2007, ebay banned the sale of virtual goods. Brought a glorious, fun, highly profitable era to an end. It was already starting to erode away with china just starting to get into the mix at that time, but ebay banning virtual gold sales just about ruined it for me.

    Selling/Reselling gold got riskier and riskier over time. You're always worried about the game company banning you, and getting scammed on paypal. Its still possible to do this via marketing your own website selling the goods, but nowadays its too risky a business.
