It's exchange day today

Yes you heard it right, today you can exchange your starcoins for stardollars.
Note that you can do it only once and max 500 starcoins, which is nice, as you get 50 stardollars, enough for broadcasts, which seem to not come out for a while btw.



Example of bad sale

Like I said in one of my posts, there are things you shouldn't sell if you want to get some profit, like free items. Check out this sale for example:
Almost everything that she is selling was available for free, now I know some of you don't want to risk using proxies, but most people do use them, so this is pointless, and won't get her much profit.

Recommended shops

Here I will show you some users that I visit more than others, just to check if they have updated their sales, and I must say, those are pretty good and smart sellers, and yet you can still make profit if you buy from them and resell later, click on their names to visit their shops.

Start search from higher prices

Looking for yellow stuff but you can't find anything because of those stupid free superstar dresses? No problem, you can increase the starting price when you search. That way you might miss some bargains, but at least it will be easier to find what you really want.

Bookmark

Whenever you find a good sale, and you will find many, trust me, don't just look, buy and leave. Bookmark store, if you want make a new folder for Stardoll bookmarks. Now you have to check often if the seller restocks. You may find some really good deals that way. If person doesn't restock in a while, you can easily remove bookmark.

Don't forget to recycle

You probably know about the recycle function you have in your suite, but not many remember to use it daily. Truth is that you can recycle up to 2 stardollar items in exchange for 1 stardollar each and 3 starcoin items for 5 starcoins each. You probably have some spare interior items that you won't use, so go ahead and recycle them. That way in 3 days you can earn for one broadcasts, in 2 more days for 1 more broadcasts, it may seem like not much, but it can help a lot when you are broke.

Make your name represent your brand

Brand - "name, term, design, symbol, or any other feature that identifies one seller's good or service as distinct from those of other sellers.
Having your name recognisable and a 'brand', ain't easy task, but it will definitely pay of. First of all, you mustn't ever scam. Not even to avenge your friend who got scammed. Make sure you always have fair, but still prices that will bring you profit. Also refresh and restock your bazaar with new fashionable products often. You should have products for each type of customer. And of course, broadcast, so that people see you and remember your name.

Small vs Big Sellers

There is a difference between sellers, and this one is the most obvious. Small seller, someone with prices like this:
Their way: They hunt for not so rare items, hotbuys, something they can resell for not much higher. They have a lot of patience for constant searching in bazaars for bargains.
Pros: They will almost always have stardollars for broadcasting, and their sale will keep going, as long as they restock it. 
Cons: Little money, never enough for some big purchases, like LE collection or tribute stores collections.
Big sellers:
Their way: They hunt for big, real bounty hunters. They invest in more expensive items in order to get many stardollars. They know exactly what they want and have ways to get it.
Pros; Big money, really great income. Can collect enough for bigger purchases.
Cons: Usually because of high prices they get broke, don't have enough for broadcasts. And get stupid annoying comments like 'OMG your prices are too high, blah blah blah'

So what kind of seller are you? Answer on poll I will put on sidebar. And who do you think is better?
Me? I used to be small seller, but now I have 'overgrown' it and I have no more patience for this, so I am big seller, let's just say I got over 500 stardollars now, of course they are locked now. (Darn Stardoll!)

What I sold - Couture tribute

Here's screenshot of couture tribute items I sold, as you can see, it has repeats, which means I sold item once, bought it again and sold it for higher price again. Note: Those prices do not guarantee that you will sell for the same amount, I got Elle Saab dress returned after 4 days in bazaar, and I am still trying to sell it, but remember, advertising it important. Without broadcasts I can't assure you will sell it. And how to find items - simple! Search for them in main bazaar, use search function, determine the price (2-100 is best, maybe 150 if you want to risk) and keep refreshing. You may not find at first, but you gotta be patient. Usually you will find affordable item in short amount of time, but you never know.
Now do you want more screenshots of what I sold, so you can determine the prices easier? Vote on the poll on sidebar or here in comments.

Some more tips

- You will need to check out a lot of sales before you find good one. Check broadcasts frequently, I never said it was going to be easy.
- Check guestbooks for advertisements too. People advertise there when they got no stardollars and they may be selling really good stuff.
- Watch what you buy. You might regret it. Some stuff you can sell for high prices, other you can't. You will need to learn to make difference between these.
