Ever thought of having a great plushie gallery but not wanting to use any shop
space? Are all your plushies tucked away in your Safety Deposit Box and haven’t been seen for months?? ~Well please
If you have the time, a few spare neopoints and plushies stored in your Safety
Deposit Box to invest in your shop you can do what I am doing and take out all your most valued plushies and put them all
in your shop for displaying AND for selling and make a good profit while doing so.
Since I have had so many neomails asking how I got so many plushies in my shop
I have decided to share with everyone how I got it started and how it has helped me earn great rewards (neopoints).There is
no big secret on how I earn my neopoints but I hope to help anyone who is interested in what I do.
It all started when I managed to save 150k the first 2 months and had always
wanted a plushie gallery, but seeing there where too many plushies to collect I then decided to collect my most favourite.
As I said earlier when I realized I had all my prized plushies stored away and unnoticed for such a long time I wanted to
have a gallery but also needed a shop to help me earn neopoints so what I decided to do next was put them all in my shop and
checking the shop wizard before-hand, priced them to be on sale. Silly you ask??-Why would I sell my most favourite plushies?? Well the reason being I realized that way I could sell it and make a profit and then
go out and buy the same plushies again and resell it and so on. This has continued to this day and I now find myself not needing
to play any games at all (except for avatar and trophy related ones) because my shop earns my neopoints for me instead.
It may sound confusing but below I have out lined the steps I took to be where
I am now with my shop and the rewards that I have managed to gain through out my time here on neopets. I only suggest the
following steps and tips to ONLY those who are willing to invest all their time and neopoints completely on their shop and
that would include a lot of researching and checking prices constantly.
The steps I have taken to be where I am:
1) Save enough to invest in your shop. I had around 150k but you really don’t
need that much to start (My cousin has started with a lot lower and already is doing so well).
2) Choose a theme and/or items you like most. I think it is best to sell items
that interest you most since you will be searching for these items constantly to restock your shop. Also if you have a themed
shop (e.g. baby) you will most likely stumble upon shoppers who collect and buy a few at a time.
Tip: Out of my own experience I find plushies are great as they are good sellers
and you can find really great deals on them if you know what you are looking for.
3) Do not use your shop space for
a gallery with items priced over 100k, instead of pricing them as gallery items you can actually sell them (unless the item
itself is worth over 100k) and make a profit doing so and at the same time you can still have all your nice items displayed
in your shop everyday depending on how often you restock.
4) Try to stick to the same items ALL the time. That way you will become more
aware of the value of the item, you will always know what you are looking for and also know when you come upon a great deal.
You will be amazed at what bargains you can find if you always stick to the same items. (I have found 80k plushies being sold
for only 2k and that is a huge profit of over 70k itself alone- that is worth a week+ playing games)
5) Another great tip is to do a lot of shopping AFTER the half price day (3rd
of every month) and no not in the shops but in the shop wizard as I find so many people pricing items really low the day after.
Tip: This is the time I buy a lot of extras and put them away until the price
has gone up, you will be amazed on how much you can earn during this time. I ONLY advise of this if you are certain of the
prices you can sell the item for.
6) When you are confident enough
of the prices of your items and have enough neopoints to invest I recommend selling items that are over 1000nps. That way
you can check through your sales history and know what has been purchased from your shop.
The best thing is you will find more neopoints in your shop till-I have found
850k in my shop till on some occasions but that is because I have a really large
shop and items priced over 10k+, but anyone can achieve that through time and patience.
Tip: I find items worth over 1000nps are easier to profit from, meaning you can
put it a little higher.
NOTE: Please read thetxcowgirl’s article:
The importance of a large shop.
7) Make sure you price your items
accordingly and know that you are making a profit even though if it is only an extra 500nps from the amount you bought it
for (just think if you had 50 items and sold them for an extra 500nps that would
Tip: If you are not sure of prices when restocking just do item at a time checking
prices before you go onto your next item.
8) If you are selling items that are worth more than 1000nps I strongly suggest
you buy the cheapest of that item in the shop wizard and then reprice them around the 3-6 cheapest on the shop wizard. That
way you will still get a profit and also sell the item quicker and not get stuck with it when there is a huge price fluctuation
SO BE CAREFUL.
9) Once you are familiar with your shop and your items you will often stumble
on familiar usernames (like you would often buy from the same shop). Well I found making neofriends with these people really
helpful because not only are they interested in the same items but also the fact that they TOO are constantly looking for
the same items and would most likely be your neofriends. I have made quite a few friends doing this and now they are the ones
who help me find my plushies when I can’t find the time to and also in reverse. You might even be lucky enough to find
someone willing to sell you items real cheap.
10) Just keep researching and checking prices anywhere anytime using the shop
wizard and trades (I don’t think auctions are good as they can hold your neopoints for a long time) you WILL be amazed
at what you can find out there in Neopia.
Tip: I find that when bidding for a trade I would usually trade a cheap plushie
and neopoints instead of an omelette/jelly that way the person whose item you are bidding for will take more notice with your
bids than the other bids, as long as you know that you can make a profit on the item.
These days I find myself confident enough to invest entirely on my shop as well
as back up stock knowing I will get much more than what I had spent. I DO NOT SUGGEST you doing this until you have done a
lot of researching on prices and you know you are ready to invest more.
I completely depend on my shop and it can earn me 30k-100k+ a day and anyone
can achieve the same too.
Well that is what I do with my time spent on neopets.
If you are willing and able as I have been you will most definitely find it rewarding and the best part is there is no end
to your rewards just as long as you keep going so will your rewards. Out of my own experience and knowing that even my cousin
follows my tips I know this can work for anybody I have even found out my neofriends have been doing the same things and are
now so successful here on neopets.
