1.0 - Pre-requisite Information

This section includes the most basic information you will need ahead of time to properly create an Auctioning Group in TradeSkillMaster.

1.1 - Items

You need to know what item and/or items you want to sell on the auction house.

While it is a good idea to group similar items together in one group, for this tutorial we will be making an auctioning group with one item in it.

To add an item to a group you need to have one of the item in your possession.

1.2 - Duration

You'll need to decide how long you want to post the items for: 12, 24 or 48 hours.

1.3 - Pricing

You will need to determine three prices for each item.

  • The lowest price you are willing to sell the item for (known as the "Threshold").
  • The normal price you'd like to sell the item at (known as "Fallback").
  • The highest price you would ever sell the item at (known as "Maximum Price").

Just to reiterate you will be setting up pricing parameters that TradeSkillMaster will use to determine which price to choose when preparing your items to be posted.

This will automatically be chosen somewhere along the spectrum of prices you set up in the category or group overrides.

The spectrum is this (with lowest price on left and highest price on right):

Threshold---Fallback---Maximum Price

While a bit confusing at first, simply try to remember the two most important prices you'll need to decide on are your normal price (Fallback) and your lowest price (Threshold).

1.3.1 - Lowest Price

Your lowest price (also known as "Minimum Price Setting" and "Threshold") is the lowest price you ever willing to sell the item for.

Once the price for that item is undercut down below you lowest price price you will be able to tell TradeSkillMaster what to do with your particular item (known as "Reset Method"): re-post at you normal price (Fallback), re-post at your lowest price (Threshold), or not post the item item at all.

1.3.2 - Normal Price

You normal price setting (also known as Maximum Price Setting" and "Fallback") is the price you want to sell the item for in a normal situation.

Imagine it as your regular price. The price you would be happy selling the item for say-in an day-out.

If nothing else was going on in your markets, no competition, no odd postings for your item, etc., you want TradeSkillMaster to post you item for this price.

On the pricing continuum your normal price usually sits about in the middle.

How you determine your normal price is really up to you but past experience should be a good guide for this price.
