Have you ever had items priced at the same reasonable prices that the ones in the shop wizard are, but it just sits there for weeks with out anyone buying it? Just because you price the item slightly lower than everything on the shop wizard, doesn’t mean people will buy it. Rarely does anyone sell an item worth over 10,000 np. This is because the items worth might be high, but since it costs so much no one will buy it (and few have enough NP to even afford it if they wanted it). So, if you find a paint brush on the floor that’s worth, say, 20,000np, but you didn’t actually pay any Np to get the item. So you might want to sell it for 19,000np, (since the ones in the shop wizard are priced at around 20,000, people will want to buy yours, right? Wrong) but find that it just sits there forever. Since you didn’t pay anything for it in the first place, by selling it for 5np you would still be making more money. The same goes with buying cheap food at the shops. You buy a tomato in the shops for 3 Np. You want to sell it, and look it up in the Wiz for a reasonable price (they sell for 50np). That is outrageous, considering you’re paying around 15 times as much. So how much do you sell your tomato for if you bought it for 3np? You sell it for 5 or 6 np. Take it from us…in our shop we will usually sell food items for around 5 np, or about 2 more np than we got them for in the shop. You may say that that’s stupid because we only make 2 np total profit, but if you but cheap stuff like that and keep selling it like that for a while (I our account we have close to 800 items, 800,000np and 4 extremely strong pet, and we’ve been playing for about 5 months) you’ll get tons of np and your items will go quickly. Trust us, it seems stupid, but it works. The whole point of this: In order to sell an item quickly, sell it much much cheaper than the shop wizard prices 🙂 – Alex K.

In this guide, I will tell you what the best shops to loiter at are the best, and which are the worst. along with what items you should keep an eye out for. for times sake (and yours) I will only be writing down the good shops. Only go to these if you seek np, go to others if you wish to become poor. This guide will help you see that playing games at Neopets is for suckers who don’t know the ropes and that shops are the best AND easiest way to make np. Now, with that said, here are the best shops 🙂

I believe that it is safe to say that every Neopian with the amount of brain power greater than that generated by a potato has marveled at the immense size of another Neopian’s shop at least once in their time playing this game. “How awesome it must be to have a shop like that,” some think, while others ponder the reason and usefulness of this outrageously large shop, and begin to ask themselves “What in the world are they ever going to do with all of that shop space?”

Some Neopians think that upgrading your shop higher than level 5 is a complete and utter waste of time. Little do you know, though, that with the correct combination of competitive pricing, eye-catching advertising, and variety of items, the owner of a Neopian Mall can easily make upwards of 500,000 NP in one single day. To some of you that may be an outlandishly large amount of NP, and to others it may be chump change, but all-in-all, investing in a Neopian Mall has the potential of being one of the most profitable decisions you will ever make in your Neopian career. “How might one go about creating a successful Neopian Mall?” one might ask. Well, that’s what I’m here for.

Recent studies show that now is a time when neopets is introducing a lot of new items when ever neopets creates a new item they must retire an old item, for example red wine used to be a pretty common item now try and find it on the shop wiz. It is hard to find because many people discarded it. After it was retired people sold it for millions.

Now neopets isn’t going to retire an item like fire fire pants on fire that would be a big deal but items like bottle of black sand. So when you think about it the sdumbest items can make you a fortune. But one thing not to do is what many people try to do. Don’t sell it right away take a look at what the current prices are. You have to do this the right way there’s an old saying “milk it for what its worth.” That doesn’t mean keep it in your deposit box for three years. You’ve got to see the prices are the prices going down should I sell it are they going up should I wait?

Today I saw that I had a lot of items in my shop… good, right? No. All of these items were set at 99,999 neopoints, and I wanted to make money, not just show off my items, seeing as they were the most random things in the world. So what do I decide to do? Go through the tedious process of pricing my items.

I get in a good rhythm; copy an item name and paste it into Microsoft Word. Copy the next item name, paste it. And so on and so forth until I have my first thirty items in Microsoft Word and can now look up their prices. Now I have to copy the names of all these same items again and paste them into the Shop Wizard search box. After refreshing many times, I find the actual lowest price and decide to put my item a few neopoints below that one. Looking at the clock, I realize all of this has taken me eight minutes, and what do I have to show but the price of one item?
