How much should I sell stuff for?

Visit player shops to get a good idea for what to sell your items for.

But no one is selling my items

If that's the case, then take a wild shot at how much you think your item is worth! People might just buy it and start selling around your price if they ever get any spares!

How do I get people to come to my shop?

First off, keep your shop well stocked. If someone is looking for a particular item in chat let them know you sell it at your shop.

Someone is selling lower than me, what do I do?

Do what you want to do. Sell lower or buy all of their stock and sell it.

I don't want money, I want to trade items... How?

You can also setup your chest shop as a barter chest. On the first line type [Shop], 2nd line the qty you are selling, 3rd line the qty you are trading for, 4th line type [barter]. You then need to hit the sign with the item you wish to sell, then hit the sign again with the item you are trading/bartering for.
