No offense to Cathillach, who wrote this email, but I have included a "weekly flipping for dummies" response to his question.
I have read through some of your
blog and your guides to the trading post and currently I am working my
way through your secret forum. I am new to the idea of flipping items
but I am generally good at math and so I have been doing ok with
flipping some items using Gold wars 2 flipping items page. The main
problem I seem to be having is getting my items to sell. I have listed
them but they do not seem to be bringing in any money after a couple of
One market I would like to get into and learn more about i the
weekly flipping markets. Are there any that you could suggest that
would be good places to learn, most of the examples you talk about were
months ago and looking at some of them now I don't know if they are
still viable and as I only have around 30 gold I don't want to make too
many mistakes at this point.

Sure, try items like the various venom sacs, fangs, claws, vials of
blood, logs, etc. You will want to place buy orders when they are
profitable to flip right now, write down the value you bought at and
then sit on them until you like the profit margin that you see. This
usually takes around a week, and eventually you'll get a feel for when
to try each one.
1. Search for any of the following:
Vial of Blood
2. Place buy orders on anything that is profitable. Use * .85 on the sell listing to determine profit after fees.
3. Record the value you bought each at. Paper and pencil works but excel is easier for tracking additional stats like date of purchase.
4. Check each day and sell when you see a good profit margin.
Go easy at first and only buy one stack of 250. As you get more comfortable, buy far more when you know the price can easily get much higher.
