Well it was interesting to host our own guild trader last week. We only put in a low bid this week and therefore failed to win it. A few facts from the week's trading.
Total sales: 1.552 million
Top seller: 347000
Number of sellers: 56
Cost of trader: 500K
Gold earned: 46K
Pages of items for sale: 6
Comparisons with another trade guild I was in:
Total sales: 47 million
Top seller: 1.5 million
Number of sellers: 489
Cost of trader: Unknown but probably 1 million or higher
Gold earned: 1.4 million
Pages of items for sale: 70
So in order to get the most out of the trader we need more people to post items, however we are not a dedicated trading guild and many folks don't have high value items. In addition, due to it coinciding with the early release of Elsweyr there was not a lot of activity on any of the trading guilds, and the one I am in the previous week made 156 million in sales. Consequently we will wait until another event begins where high value items begin to drop, then we will definitely get a trader. In the meantime, as it costs a lot of gold to hire please consider donating gold to the guild bank at any bank in Tamriel.
Thanks for taking part, looking forward to the next trader week.
EDIT: If you have items on the guild store they are now only available to guild members to buy. If you wish to relist them on a different guild then go to the guild store at any bank, select listing, then cancel each item you want to remove. They will return to your email after a short wait, you can then take them from your email to your inventory and relist on a different site.
