Following on from yesterdays post on the Advanced Strategy The Pricing Trap strategy – what is it and what is its purpose?
There are two ways to combat this strategy, and the second method is fail safe.
The first method is to spot it and avoid it. Therefore this requires you not to blindly use your posting addons but to at least pay attention to what is going on in your markets. Which is no bad thing.
The second method is to always have a minimum posting price. For glyphs i have a 40 gold minimum posting price – see my post The importance of minimum pricing levels. Indeed, TradeSkillMaster will allow you to base your minimum posting price on the crafting cost – and for other markets such as enchants i base my minimum price on the crafting cost + 10% (i.e. 110% of the crafting cost). This will allow you to blindly use your addon to post – though i would still heavily advice keeping an eye on what your markets are doing!
