Thread: Void's Advanced Merchanting Guide

    Icon5 Void's Advanced Merchanting Guide

    Maplestory Guide: Advanced Merchanting
    (WARNING: LONG READ)

    Introduction

    Hi! I’ve made this guide to help people make more mesos then what common guides say. The conventional Mapler will tell you “Buy low sell high.” This is not necessarily true in making large quantities of profit. The purpose of this guide is to expand a Mapler’s options in merchanting. In order to understand what I’m saying throughout the guide you must know these economic terms (I’ve tried to simplify them as much as possible).

    Consider resizing the font to be smaller; it's really big and harder to read as a result.
    Also use a few spoiler tags in tactical locations so it's a little more organized.

    This guide actually had a lot of things I didn't actually think of, it's pretty Genius and I am planning on using the 100m I recently made to break into this : )

    If I had the patience to merch, I would totally put this guide to work.

    Thanks, it took me awhile to make this because i had to see how Maplestory's economy was changing over the course of a couple years. Also the notion of making modern examples to help people understand better.

    This looks like an absolutely wonderful merchanting guide. You were very successful at putting confusing concepts to understandable terms

    Yeah, i'm a business major in college. Some of the vocab i listed is about a paragraph long and the professors don't click back on Power points so you have to simplify it in your notes.

    Very up-to-date and I hope it stays that way. I needed something like this to increase my funds in Bello. I had 200m, but I just bought a crap-ish Scarlion for 140m, so I don't have too much left. I also sold an Android (M) Recipe I found for 70m, and found out it was actually around 200m. I have about 70m left, guess I could start merching with that. Do you have any tips for people just starting out?

    Yay for another Windian.
