    and my stuff sold. amazing.

    i had weapons priced for between 250k and 500k and they would NOT sell.

    so, i bumped them to 4.5 mil and they sold over night.

    it's sad.

    perception is everything with some people, i guess.

    they say balanced... they saw, SSI, they saw DI... they just didn't register that 250k was a STEAL.

    i mean, they were underpriced from the beginning, really. but i had extra, so i wanted to get rid of em...

    it's social perception and association 101, i guess.

    250k?! a NEWBIE could afford that! I won't be seen using it!
    but the one for 4m, now THATs a knife I can spread butter on toast with!

    isn't it a bit like the designer sunglasses and watches? people only want it because other people can't afford it.

    Be very careful about raising your prices as the OP has somehow tapped into the vendor cost system and is taking a percentage of all money collected thus getting rich

    lol, that reminds me of a fund rasier I did in 1991. I was selling these cheap beaded necklaces at 3 for $1 and none sold. So I jumped the price to $2 each or 3 for $5. I sold out. LOL, why do people think more $$$$ = better?

    While we're off-topic, I drove by an old farmer in a pickup on the side of the road a few years ago. Had a large painted plywood sign, Watermelons, $1.50 each, or 3/$5.
    Being the guy I am, I had to go back and ask, if he had been selling many 3s...he smiled and nodded, said quite a few :)
    I had to laugh and drive off, scratchin my head at the math LOL

    Yeah pricing is not an exact, or any kind of, science.

    I actually do well by under-cutting. I find the Luna price and cut it in half.

    Is your vendor in Luna?
