How to setup shop on A’therys!
We on A’therys have an active economy with Player to Player trading; the Admin Shops and Auctions, this guide will show you how to use it to the best of your ability so that you and your friends will have some informative ways to sell and buy items.
Ways to Merchant
Player to Player Trading
Player to player trading can be done in two major ways, ordering from one of the merchants, merchant companies or through player run sign shops in town and Capital markets.
Ordering from a Merchant
Ordering through a Merchant is as easy as messaging someone on the forums or talking to them in game, you tell them what you want, they give you a price then some haggling happens until you find a price. Remember different merchants may charge different prices so it's best to shop around when it comes to big orders.
How to make Money
These shops are easy to spot thanks to the [Trade] located at the top of the sign, they will usually be found in town or in Capital Markets. Sign shops can't sell specially named items; however, it does offer unlimited space for items you're selling/buying thus being a huge space saver!
Quick shops are harder to spot as they are just a chest with an interface. They will be usually found in a town or inside capital markets. Chest shops can sell specially named items, such as lore items but you can only fill either a double chest or a single chest of items inside one shop. Chest shops have a service charge of 250 yora, but this makes up for all the benefits in which comes with the shop. If someone buys from your shop, money will be sent automatically to your current balance. If you remove the chest, it will give you the 250 yora back.
How to use Admin Shops
Admin shops are in every nation capital; some are harder to find than others so if you're lost ask in nation chat for some help. They sell almost everything but at a lot higher than player market prices, they also buy things from you at low prices. They should be your last option when selling materials. They can be confusing at first but they're pretty easy once you understand.
If the sign says [Buy] then You are buying from it. / If the sign says [Sell] then You are selling to it.
How to use Auctions
Auctions are global so you have a chance to reach a much broader audience than traditional shops, they cost 50 yora to start and are quite easy to setup.
