Confused about how to price your items on the Booshies virtual market? This blog post offers some things to think about before you post something for sale.
1. Search the market and NPCs for your item!
Take a moment to search for the item(s) you are about to list on the trade market and see what other users are selling for. Also be sure to check Menchy (and any other future NPCs) to see if they sell the same item and for how much.
2. Remember the exchange rate: L$1 = B10
If you have an uncommon, traited pet like a Girecko, in-world you might consider selling it for something like L$2,500 or more ideally. On the market, this would be B25,000.
3. Pet Stats, Traits, Element, Skin and You
When it comes to pricing your pets, generally the more you can stack onto their description, the higher you will probably want to price your pets no matter where you choose to sell them; HUD trade market or in-world. That isn’t to say a normal Booshie should just be thrown away for super cheap, either, because even a most common Booshie can produce rarer skin types.
When it comes to stats…
Both parents play a significant role in their offspring’s stats. When the offspring is hatched, it has an equal chance to inherit either of its parents stats of each kind individually.
When it comes to traits…
The chance of a pet being hatched/born with traits is greatly increased by having one or, even better, two parents with the same trait. A pet can randomly gain a trait when born by a small percent chance.
When it comes to skin rarity and element…
Element and rarity are both relatively unaffected by parents, though it does contribute a small chance if the parents were uncommon/rare/special or elemental that their child will be hatched so, too.
4. The Trade Market Fees & Re-listing
Keep in mind that if you mis-price your item and it’s under 700B, there is no fee to cancel and relist! If your price is going to be over that threshold, take the time to do a couple searches and make sure you’re pricing your items fairly and correctly the first time. We may in the future be switching the fees over to a % cut system that will ultimately lessen the charge on almost all transactions on the market but still provide us with fair listing practices. Should this become the case, we will let everyone know via notice before hand.
