Who can use Grand Exchange OSRS?

The Grand Exchange OSRS is one of the places every player has heard of or visited. It’s been an inseparable part of the game since February 26th, 2015. There’s a 75% threshold in the content polls through which players decide what kind of updates they want in the game, and Grand Exchange OSRS passed by 76.3%.

So why is Grand Exchange OSRS so important for the players? Let’s talk about its functions and how it can be useful.

The Grand Exchange OSRS, also known as GE, is pretty much a trading system where players can purchase and sell tradeable items. It’s the ultimate marketplace! If you’re a member, you get eight Grand Exchange OSRS slots in which you can trade. For free players, the slots are only three. 

grand exchange osrs

Here’s a tip regarding the limited slots in the Grand Exchange: compress things into item sets! If you compress items together, you can trade the entire set at once instead of having to trade each one individually. It’s quite convenient and you can easily do it. Right-click the Grand Exchange OSRS ge clerk and choose the “Sets” option. This brings up the “Items sets” interface where the available items are listed. Pick the “Contents” option from the right-click menu and if you have all the necessary items, you can choose the “Exchange” option and swap them for the full set. Turning the set into its components requires a similar process, involving the “Items sets” interface. It’s quite simple.

There is a limit which restricts the buying rate to a certain quantity and it’s reset every 4 hours. Some items that are connected in a way also have a connected buying limit so you can only buy a certain amount of each of them. For example, if you reach your limit on the 4-dose Prayer potions, you can’t buy Prayer potions of 3 doses. Good thing is there is no such limit for selling items.

Another restriction that exists on trading in the Grand Exchange OSRS is the one for new accounts. The restrictions on new free-to-play accounts include being blocked from selling items on the Grand Exchange OSRS until their logged-in time is more than 18 hours or they gain at least 7 quest points. This prevents getting botted or black-market goods from entering the OSRS economy.

Trading between players is still possible and frequently used, of course, but the nice thing about the Grand Exchange OSRS is that you don’t have to advertise, meet people or wait for the trades to finish. The coins and items from the trades, even if they were just partly finished, can be collected at any bank or deposit box. Of course, you receive a message in your chatbox when the status of the offer is updated.

However, certain items can’t be traded using the Grand Exchange OSRS but can still be exchanged by traditional player-to-player trade. Such non-tradeable items are all sorts of burnt foods, partially charged games necklaces, a slice of cake, recipe items, Castle Wars bandages, and others.

There were similar trading systems before the Grand Exchange OSRS was implemented – we had the trading post and the older marketplaces in Falador and Varrock, but GE is definitely outdoing them all. 

How to access Grand Exchange OSRS?

grand exchange osrs

The Grand Exchange is very easy to access and there are multiple ways to get there. It’s located in Varrock, east of Edgeville and south of the Wilderness. We’re going to put together some of the most convenient ways to reach the Grand Exchange OSRS:

• By using a Varrock Teleport tablet or spell and walking north until you reach the Varrock castle, then moving a little to the east.

• By using an amulet of glory or fairy ring code d•k•r to get to Edgeville and then walking east.

• By using the tunnel northwest of the Grand Exchange (keep in mind it requires 21 level Agility).

• By using Ring of Wealth to teleport directly to the Grand Exchange.

• By using a canoe station (it requires 12-57 Woodcutting) to travel to one of these three places – Champions’ Guild station, Barbarian Village station, or Edgeville station. After that, you walk north from the Champions’ Guild station, east from the Barbarian Village station, or use the tunnel from the Edgeville station. 

• If you have completed the Varrock medium diary, you can make the Varrock teleports take you right to the Grand Exchange OSRS, saving yourself some walking.

• By using a skills necklace which can teleport you to the Cooks’ guild, and then going a little north.

OSRS Grand Exchange Prices

grand exchange osrs

We keep talking about selling and buying but we all know the most important thing about trade is the pricing. 

Around the Grand Exchange OSRS, there are six pricing experts who can show you the current prices for items. Each of them has their own field of expertise. 

For an item’s guide price, right-click Brugsen Bursen. For the prices of ores, check with Farid Morrisane. For the prices of logs, your guy is Relobo Blinyo. Bob Barter is who you turn to for the prices of herbs and for decanting potions, even noted ones. For prices for runes, turn to Murky Matt who can also decant charged items into full and empty charges, and for prices of some weapons and armors, talk to Hofuthand. 

Outside the Grand Exchange OSRS’ main entrance, you can find the tutor James who can give you information about membership bonds.

As for how the OSRS Grand Exchange prices are calculated, Jagex has never published their algorithms, so all we have are theories – some of which are pretty reasonable. The prices are updated depending on the recently traded prices and volumes. If an item has a low trade volume, the price update will be as rare as once a week. 

The OSRS Grand Exchange prices are mostly covered by the laws of supply and demand. When more people demand an item than they supply it, the price will be increased. The price will decrease when more people supply an item than they demand it. However, Jagex can intervene and correct the prices when they believe there is price manipulation on a large scale or when prices are boosted for scamming. 

To get an update on the current OSRS Grand Exchange prices of certain items, you can also check the Grand Exchange Market Watch that has up-to-date info.

OSRS Grand Exchange Flipping

grand exchange osrs

You’ve probably heard about OSRS Grand Exchange flipping. The idea of flipping is to use the price limits of items sold at the Grand Exchange OSRS to your advantage. When you know the highest and lowest among of OSRS gold that an item has been sold for, you can buy them cheaply and sell them to profit. 

There are two things you need to do to find the price margins so you can start with OSRS Grand Exchange flipping. You need to have the maximum amount of gold that the item you picked can be sold for. To do that, you can buy cheap OSRS gold here. Put your buying offer way over the medium price that the Grand Exchange gives you so you can see how far up it can go. That’s the price at which you’re going to sell the item.

You need to find the price floor in the same way – the price floor is the lowest price at which you can get an item. That’s the price you’re going to be buying items at. The process of OSRS Grand Exchange flipping items is basically buying an item at the lowest price and selling them at the highest. It takes around 2-3 minutes to do it and you must be careful about picking the items you’re going to flip. If the item is cheap, you’re going to have to buy and sell a large amount of it to get some significant profit. And there is a limit to how much you can buy of one item for 4 hours. If you buy the maximum amount possible, then sell what you bought, the limit is reset though. 

When picking your items for OSRS Grand Exchange flipping, it’s wise to find ones that have a huge difference between the lowest and highest price. 

The more expensive the items, the higher are the price margins. They can vary from 1gp to a few million, so you need to pick wisely. 

A method some players use when they’re doing OSRS Grand Exchange flipping is undercutting. It can save you some time and help you make more gold per hour. The idea is to go slightly over/under the lowest/highest price. This way you will get your offer faster and save some time, so you will be able to make more gold. But you will be ruining the market for that item and if another flipper notices you’re undercutting them, they’ll start doing the same to you. This makes the item’s margins grow smaller. 

That’s why it’s often wiser to stock up on patience and wait for your offers as much as necessary. Usually, they all go through but if it takes an unusually long amount of time, adjust your prices by 1% at a time to see if this works.

The Grand Exchange is a trading system for players to purchase and sell tradeable items inOld School RuneScape. Flipping on the Grand Exchange is the easiest way to make money and trade with other people in OSRS. You can exchange almost every item in the game and you can buy it or sell it in Grand Exchange.

As traders you don’t need to go search or meet with other players to sell items in Grand Exchange. Because everything you trade can be found or collected in any bank or deposit box. Every player receives a message in their chatbox when the status of a trade offer is updated.

Where is the Grand Exchange located?

If you want to find the Grand Exchange you must search for it northwest of Varrock and east of Edgeville which are located just south of the Wilderness.

To get there you can:

Walk until you reach the Varrock Teleport spell.

Using the tunnel northwest of the Grand Exchange (requires 21 Agility).

Using a canoe station (requires 12-57 Woodcutting) to travel to the Champions’ Guild station, Barbarian Village station, or Edgeville station and walking north, walking east, or using the tunnel, respectively.

Using the spirit tree northeast of the Grand Exchange (requires completion of Tree Gnome Village). Using the Ardougne cloak teleport takes you somewhat close to the Khazard battlefield spirit tree which can take you directly to the GE.

Using a charge on an amulet of glory, or fairy ring code DKR (requires access to the fairy rings from partial completion of Fairytale II – Cure a Queen), to get to Edgeville and then using the tunnel.

Using the Varrock Teleport spell from the Standard spellbook, a Varrock teleport tablet, or a POH Varrock portal in a Portal Chamber (requires 25 Magic, and 50 Construction to build a portal)

If you have completed the Varrock medium diary, you can toggle these Varrock teleports to take you directly to the Grand Exchange.

Using a charge on a ring of wealth.

Using a skills necklace to teleport to the Cooks’ guild then running slightly north.

Taking the Cart from Keldagrim, you can use the Blast Furnace minigame teleport, which is near the carts.

Every regular account can use it, but if you are an Ironman or Hardcore Ironman or an Ultimate Ironman you can not use Grand Exchange. There is one more restriction and that is for new players, you will have limited access to baying and selling on the Grand Exchange.

If you have a new account and you have 24 hours of game time or seven quest points. You will be limited in what you can do, so definitely make sure you have the requirements before you start flipping on Grand Exchange.

For free to play accounts you will only have access to three offer slots , on a paid account you will have access to eight slots. Each offer slot has a buy and sell option, if you click on buy items option it will pull up the search parameter, and you can search through every tradable item in the game.

How to sell an item ?

To sell an item you need to click on the right icon which is sell items, after that you can click on the item in your inventory and it will automatically put a sell offer. If you don’t want to automatically put a sell offer you can change it and put any price you want.

What is Flipping ?

Flipping is taking advantage of a discrepancy between the buy price of an item in the sell price of an item, this is called the margin. To start flipping you need to get a price difference between items. 

grand exchange osrs

The easiest way to do this is just quickly buy the item and quickly sell the item. On the right side you have “Price per item”  under it you have arrows icon, from then you can change plus 5% or more the price and from the dots icon next to it you can make whatever price you want. 

Then you click on confirm so it should turn yellow and then green.Congratulations you bought the item, click on the item and you will find that there are coins left in addition to the purchased item. The reason for this is that Grand Exchange works to make you the best deal possible.

This also works the other way around if you put a price of 1 GP you will never sell that item for that price, because there are people who will give a higher price, this is especially true for items that are high value or are in search by many players.

How much money do I need to start Flipping ?

To get started there is no specific amount to start with, some players advise you to start Flipping with as much money as you can because it is based on percentages. For those who want the correct answer for an example I will give from 5 mil to 10 million GP.

The best advice that can be given before you start is to stay away from ordinary recommended items and look for more unique and less familiar items on the market so that they can make a profit.

Some items cannot be traded in the Grand Exchange for example, burnt foods cannot be traded with the GE service, because they don’t have any in-game value. Other items include partially charged jewellery (games necklace) or equipment (black mask), half-eaten food items (slice of cake), recipe items (uncooked cake), currency (platinum tokens), and Castle Wars bandages. This type of item can be traded by using player to player trade.

Runescape 3 and OSRS Grand Exchange Moneymaking Guide

In-depth guide about Runescape Gold-making on the Grand Exchange

Introduction

This guide will go over two main ways of making Gold through the Grand Exchange, in OSRS and Runescape 3. The GE is almost exactly the same in this two RS versions, so we have decided to cover the topic together for both games and point out any important differences (like popular items, and available online statistic tools). Before we go into details, let us start by covering some basic, general, and most importantly, useful information:

  • The Grand Exchange is the in-game trading system which lets Players Sell and Buy almost all tradable items; F2P Players are limited to 3 active listings, while Premium Members can post up to 8 trade offers (this means that Free Players will have a much harder time using the GE to their advantage).
  • It was released on 26th of November 2007 in the Runescape and on 26th of February 2015 in the OSRS, after Players have voted for it in the official pool.
  • It is located North-West of the Varrock city in both versions of the Game.
  • Transactions are conducted automatically and a chat notification is sent to a Player each time a transaction is completed, which means that the only thing that Players have to do is post up their Offers; there is no need for any Player to Player interaction when using the GE (this means that you can stay anonymous at all times which might be important when flipping or trying to manipulate prices...).
  • There are 6 NPC Guides who show the current prices of various item types (named the same in both OSRS and RS3): Hofuthand (Armors and Weapons), Murky Matt (Runes; He can also Decant your charged items), Bob Barter (Herbs; He can also Decant your potions), Relobo Blinyo (Logs), Farid Morrisane (Ores), and Brugsen Bursen (Items price guide in OSRS, and Grand Exchange information in Runescape 3).
  • Safeguard Trade restrictions are set on the Grand Exchange in order to limit price manipulation, real-world trading, and unfair Player interactions. Game developers believe in the player-driven in-game economy, so they have removed all item price restrictions, and the only forced limitation is currently the maximum quantity of an item which can be bought every 4 hours; each item/item type has its own limit; Jagex will only intervene at the last resort when price fixing and manipulating gets off the charts and becomes unhealthy for the in-game economy. Players work their way around those limitations by grouping up on dedicated Friends chats and buying out certain agreed upon items; please note that actions like that are mostly set up by Experienced GE Flippers, and common players are used as pawns for increasing prices.
  • The in-game economy follows the general Laws of Supply and Demand. This means that: 
    1. If the Demand for an item is lower than its Supply, the Price of the said item will decrease.
    2. If the Demand for an item is higher than its Supply, the Price of the said item will increase.
    3. If the Demand for an item is the same as its Supply, the Price of the said item will stabilize.
    Understanding these basic rules will help you flip the market more effectively. The main conclusions that emerge from these rules are:
    1. Avoid items that are traded extensively in high numbers, because those items match the third category, and profiting on them is almost impossible.
    2. Avoid items that are easy to get and not that useful, because items like that generally match the first category.
    3. Focus on useful items that require some hassle to get, because those items will most often match the second category.

    Important note: please remember that the Supply-Demand relation is fluid and can change weekly, daily or even hourly! 
  • We can distinguish two main ways of profiting out of the Grand Exchange (we will describe both of them in much more detail in further sections of this article):
    1. Flipping - A short term investment based on the difference between item's Buy and Sell prices (the higher the difference, the higher the profit).
    2. Investing - A long term investment based on the change of the GE trends (this strategy requires a lot of up to date market knowledge).

Gaining the Grand Exchange Knowledge

At their core, Flipping and Investing follow a very basic principle - buy low and sell high. Sounds simple, right? Well, it kind of is, and at the same time isn't, because there are a lot of factors that have to be taken into account. We will do our best to describe those factors, and show you the general strategies which will let you make a lot of money out of the Grand Exchange.


The Grand Exchange Market Watch is the official Jagex tool for viewing in-game Trade statistics.

Before we start profiting out of the Grand Exchange, we have to analyze Supply and Demand trends in order to identify the best items for Flipping and Investing. There are a few ways to do that. First of all, experienced Players will probably list these items from their memory easily, as they are using them extensively. If you do not have knowledge about the most profitable items, you can for example:

  • Use widely available online GE tools, like the official Jagex Grand Exchange Market Watch website (for RS3) or the GE Tracker (for OSRS). These sites offer a lot of Grand Exchange statistics, like Price Graphs, and trade activity for any in-game items. The "Price Rises" and "Most Traded" tabs will be most useful to you. You have to learn how to "read" the graphs; this is best shown on an example (this information will be very useful if you want to start long term Investments and can come in handy during Flipping as well):


Graph 1. The price change of an item in the span of one Month

Graph 1. shows us how the graph of the potentially profitable item looks like. We can see a stable rise in the Item's price with just a few little drops. Now that we found a promising graph, we have to analyze it:


Graph 2. The monthly price Graph on which the important Trend changes were marked.

Green rectangles show us the best time to buy the analyzed Item (periods when stable price begins to rise again). Red rectangles show us when to sell the analyzed item (periods when price begins to fall). After the initial analysis, we should take a look at the long-term (3 and 6 months) graphs in order to get some wider perspective and the trend confirmation.


Graph 3. The price change of an item in the span of six Months

Graph 3. shows us that our item's price is the highest in 6 months, and starts to stabilize, which most likely means that it will start to drop. We should not buy the said item in this situation, and wait for the price to develop instead. The right time to buy this item will come with the price stabilization after the drop (look at the periods marked with green rectangles on the Graph 2. for a reference).

Now that we know the basics of Graph reading, let us look at two more methods of gaining the important GE knowledge.

  • Read the patch notes! Updates can greatly affect item prices, by making them more useful or useless. When an item becomes more useful, the Demand for it will rise, and therefore it's price will increase; you should take full advantage of that, and stack up on the said item immediately after identifying it in the newest patch notes. This situation will be reversed if an item becomes less useful, easier to come by, or straight up useless; if you have the said the item in stock, you should get rid of it immediately to avoid Gold loses.
  • Use Friends Chats dedicated to trading. They are a great source of knowledge about prices, price margins, and upcoming mass item buyouts. Just remember to follow the rules of these chats (they can be found on corresponding Reddit posts for example), or you will be, most likely, kicked.

Armed with our new knowledge, we can proceed with our ultimate goal, which is, of course, making a lot of Gold via the Grand Exchange. As mentioned before, there are two main ways of doing it; we will now describe both of them in detail, so you can choose the one best suited for you, or just start using both for even higher potential gains.

Grand Exchange Investing

Investing in RS3/OSRS Grand Exchange is very similar to the real world investing. In-game items are our shares, and our goal is to buy them at an occasional price, wait a certain amount of time, and then sell them at a profit. This might sound random at first (if it does, please look at the "Gaining the Grand Exchange Knowledge" section again), but it really isn't, as there are a lot of ways of predicting the upcoming price changes (the main three were described in the previous paragraph).

When you identify worthwhile Items (those with their current price state similar to the state marked by a green rectangle on the Graph 2., ones that will become more useful after an update, or the ones that will be soon bought out by a trade friends chat members), the rest becomes very straight forward; you buy large quantities of the said Items, and proceed to monitor their prices on a daily basis - when you spot a price drop (red rectangle on the Graph 2.) you post your items at the new, higher price and sell them at a profit.

The best items for Investing are generally:

  • Raw and refined materials (Ores, Bars, Logs, etc.)
  • Farming Seeds, and Farmed Fruits
  • Commonly used Potions
  • Commonly used Summoning Ingredients/Pouches

Grand Exchange Flipping

There are two main flipping methods in OSRS and RS2, High Volume Flipping (for items with high trade limits, like materials, fruits, seeds, and potions), and the Low Volume Flipping (for items with low trade limits, like High-End Gear, etc.). The basic principle for both of those methods is the same; you want to buy items relatively cheaply, and sell them IMMEDIATELY (this is why Flipping can be described as a short term investment; you do not want to hold on to bought items for too long) at a profit. To do this, you will have to determine the price margin (margin is the difference between an item's minimum and maximum market prices) of an item.

To determine the margin of a High Volume item, you should:

  1. Place a Buy offer for an item with a price way above its expected value; the amount of Gold you actually paid for an item is its Maximum Market Price ⇒ this shows us the maximum price that other players are willing to pay for our item; it will become our Sale Price. (for example, we have bought an item for 5000 Gold)
  2. Place a Sell offer for an item with a price way below its expected value; the amount of money you made out of selling it is its Minimum Market Price ⇒ this shows us the minimum price at which our item can be bought reliably; it will be our Buy Price. (for example, we have sold an item for 4700 Gold)

The difference between these two prices is our margin/profit per item (5000 - 4700 = 300). We should narrow them slightly to speed up the trading process; that way we ensure that our prices are currently the best on the Grand Exchange, which will secure dynamic sales (for example, we narrow our 5000 - 4700 to 4980 - 4720 ⇒ this way, we make 40 less gold per item, but we speed up buying and selling processes greatly. This process has to be repeated for each of our traded Items on a daily basis to ensure our profits; if the margin narrows too much, we should look for another Item to flip.

After our margins are determined it is time to buy large quantities of the currently most profitable items and start reselling them at a profit.

To determine the margin of a Low Volume item, you should:

  1. Join the specialized Friends Chat dedicated to Low Volume Flipping. Members of these chats often share their margins with other players for mutual benefits.

After establishing the margin for a Low Volume Item, it is time to buy it and repost it at a higher price.

The only question left is "How to determine which Items are currently the best for Flipping?" The answer to that is: The Best items to Flip are the items that you would Invest in, but there is an important timing difference (do you remember our Graph 2.?), we will show this on another example:


Graph 4. The period in which Flipping an Item will be the most profitable.

The period of a steady rise in an Item's price is the best time for Flipping it. Graph 4. shows the best time window for Flipping the Item described in the first Paragraph. Focusing on items which prices are steadily rising will ensure the best possible profits.

Now, that you have all the necessary information, it is time for you to start your own Grand Exchange endeavor.


On Odealo dozens of sellers compete for your attention. You are guaranteed to find Runescape Gold and Items at the best price possible.  

 

END NOTE

Remember that Flipping and Investing in the Grand Exchange is associated with risk. This risk can be lowered by following the instructions described in this Guide, but avoiding it completely is impossible. Always be mindful of the current in-game economic situation, keep your information up to date, and never rush your decisions!

Please do note that this is an early version of our guide, and we will be happy to receive constructive criticism, that will help us improve it, so leave your suggestions in the comments section below. If we have missed a piece of information that is important for you, please let us know!

RuneLite & OSRS Wiki Partnership for GE prices

We are happy to announce that we have partnered with the RuneScape Wiki to bring more accurate Grand Exchange pricing to the OSRS Wiki. When looking up an item on the wiki, you will now see a button, which, using trades made through RuneLite, will provide a much more accurate representation of the item's current price.

prices

These new prices are updated every few minutes, which is much more frequent than the current Grand Exchange price data, which can be a day or two out of date.

In conjunction with this, the Wiki is providing an API for the real-time price data for developers for free. If you are a developer and have a project or website that uses Grand Exchange price data, check out their API docs here.

We will be updating RuneLite soon to use this data as a source for item pricing, so features such as examining items and bank value will also be more accurate.

Was Adding The Grand Exchange To OSRS A Good Thing?

Hey guys today here at 2007runescapegold.com, we are feeling a little philosophical, so we are going to talk about when the Grand Exchange came to Old School Runescape and how we feel it changed the game. Of course as always be sure to look at our low priced buy Old School Runescape Gold but for now, check out our thoughts on the GE(Grand Exchange).

Convenience seems to be the main thing people who are all for the Grand Exchange will say and we do have to agree with them. Player to player selling sometimes could take an age, especially if the player you were hoping to strike a deal with was not online much. The Grand Exchange makes things so much easier and there is no denying that OSRS saw a huge spike in new and returning players when it (and to be fair Iron Man which happened around the same time) was added to the game.

Was Adding The Grand Exchange To OSRS A Good Thing

The Grand Exchange actually gives you more time to enjoy the game. You do not have to dedicate a day of gameplay to trying to sell all the loot you got earlier in the week. You can just let the Grand Exchange do its thing and carry on with the game. Also, we would say that you are less likely to fall victim to some kind of scam when using the Grand Exchange than dealing with just another player.

While some may not like it, we feel the Grand Exchange was a positive addition to Old School Runescape and we would love to know what you guys think. Of course, you can make money through Grand Exchange. If you hate it let us know why and if you like it also let us know why. While you think about it be sure to check out our deals and offers on Runescape 2007 Gold.

Old School RuneScape - Grand Exchange Explaining Guide



This guide is meant to explain to new and old about the Grand Exchange. "Where is it? What is it? How can it be used to make my 1gp into a max cash stack?" I'll do my best to answer these questions and more.

Guide to Grand Exchange



Where and What Is the Grand Exchange?



The Grand Exchange is just Northwest of Varrock, far north of where the player begins in Lumbridge. It is a trading hub where players can buy or sell goods with other players without direct contact, much like Auction Houses in other games. There are a few key difference between the Grand Exchange and an Auction House that I will explain shortly. In addition to trading goods, players can also bank, exchange specific items for a set-box(allowing for easier buying, selling, and storage of multiple goods at once) and interact with a few NPCs in the area who can tell you current prices of some items and perform certain services for you such as "decanting". For members there are also quite a few shortcuts located at the Grand Exchange so it is a place members will find themselves using often.

What Makes the Grand Exchange Different from an Auction House?



There are several things that are different from the Auction Houses found in other games and these differences are what make the Grand Exchange so amazing. The first and most important difference is that the Grand Exchange has NO TAXES OR FEES. None. What this means is that you can buy an item for 1gp and sell it for 2 gp and actually make a profit. This creates an entire money making method on it's own that players can use to get rich.

Secondly, rather than all the current items up for grabs being visible and searchable, players have to search for the specific item they want and set a price they are willing to buy it at while sellers set prices they are willing to sell at. What this means is that if a player puts up an item for 30gp, and another player offers to buy it for 29gp, then the buyer won't buy and the seller won't sell so the item and the buy offer will sit in the Grand Exchange. Alternatively, if the seller placed the item up for 30gp and the buyer had offered 1000gp, then the buyer will buy the item for 30gp and get refunded the other 970gp while the seller will receive the 30gp he asked for the item. But if on the other hand the buyer had offered 1000gp for that item and no one had offered to sell it yet, when the seller puts the item up for 30gp they will receive 1000gp while the buyer gets the item. So be careful before you offer ridiculous prices for items, if no one has any up for sale then you may just end up overpaying for an item.

Third is buy limits. You can sell as much of anything as you like but you can only purchase a set amount of a specific item every 4 hours. So if an items buy limit is 1000, you can buy 1000 of that item every 4 hours for a total of 6000 of that item every day. A way to make sure you get that 6000 is to put an offer up to purchase 6000 and it will automatically be filled every 4 hours so long as people are selling at or below the price you offered to buy it at. Note that when the timer resets and allows you to buy again after hitting the buy limit, it will purchase the cheapest available items first for their set price. So you won't overpay on items as long as they are already being sold for a cheaper price when your limit resets. This system is good because it keeps rich players from influencing the market on everyday items and most expensive items as well. If you need more of an item than a buy limit allows, you can often ask another player to buy it for you, though they may request a fee.

Finally you are only allowed to have a set amount of trade offers at a time. So F2P can buy and/or sell only 3 things at a time, meanwhile P2P can trade 8 things at a time. This gives members a distinct advantage when they are trying to "flip" items but I'll get more into that in a little bit.

How Can the Grand Exchange Be Used to Turn 1gp Into a Max Cash Stack?



This question has a simple answer. Buy low and sell high! OSRS has been around for a long time and there is such a wide variety of items needed that players need for quests or tasks and they have so much money that they don't care about wasting an extra million gp here or there as long as they can get what they want. With the lack of any taxes or fees, this means players willing to wait on items can offer to buy items for cheaper than they are currently selling for, then sell them at their current selling price for a profit. This profit may be 1gp, or 10, or 10million. It all depends on how patient you or and what the market on a particular item is like at any time. This method is called Flipping. Now while the answer may be simple and most of the work will be up to the individual to figure out, I'll give a few tips on how to go about it that may help.

  1. At 1gp you can buy a hammer or something from the general store and sell it for like 70 gold. EZ money (I did promise from 1gp after all).
  2. When you have more than 1 gp, preferably a few thousand(you can get 10k from Stronghold of Security to get a better start) then look for items to flip. The best when starting out is to pick simple and cheap items with high buy limits an low margins(the difference in price between buying and selling). Items that fall into this category are things like logs, ores, bars, bones, runes, food, raw fish and meats, arrows, and pretty much anything that people need a lot of for skilling purposes. These items are usually bought and sold quickly and with their high buy limits, even if you only make 1gp at a time you will be able to make more than 10k gp per item. To figure out the prices for these items, buy 1 for whatever it is being sold for, raising the price until you inta-buy it, then sell it for as low as it takes to instantly sell it, then buy at the insta-sell price before selling at the insta-buy price.
  3. Once you've gotten this down, you can try flipping more expensive items with lower buy limits. Things like axes, pickaxes, weapons, armor, jewelry and potions. These items buy and sell more slowly, but still fairly fast especially when you consider that you only need 70 compared to 11000 of any one item with them. In addition the higher profit margins generally mean that you're usually making the same amount of money or more from them. For these items, I'd recommend starting on them when you have 100k-200k gp.
  4. Now that you have more money you can start mixing slow flips with quick flips. Quick flips is what you been doing and is pretty much items that get bought and sold soon after the offer is put up. Slow flips are WAAAY more profitable but will tie your gp up for long periods of time, possibly indefinitely. Slow flipping is inconsistent but highly profitable for the time spent with the ability to make you rich overnight if you get lucky. Items that are generally considered slow flips are things like cosmetic items from clue scrolls. The prices for this vary extremely so they can be done at almost any amount of money. To slow flip effectively, you generally don't want to "price check" since it can cost you a lot of money to find out the price difference and then you may not even make back what you sold it for. In these cases, use a website that tracks prices to find approximate value for the item. Put a low price that you think you can buy the item for and leave the offer to buy it whenever you aren't actively trading. If you don't get one, try buying a little higher the next time you put the offer up. If you do get one, then sell for as high as you think you can get until it sells, lowering the price every day or so until someone buys it.
  5. The next step is the even more expensive stuff with even lower buy limits. Usually this stuff is mid game meta equipment that people don't need to replace very often and that rich players could easily influence if the buy limits were higher. You should have at least 1mil before starting on this stuff.
  6. Near End Game Meta stuff. Not the end-end game but more like the "I'm finally starting to kill bosses, but not the hard ones and not super efficiently" part of the game. For this stuff, I recommend having at least 10mil and up to 50mil
  7. Efficient Bossing Meta. Just 1 more step above, flipping this stuff will require you to have anywhere from 50mil to 200mil to flip effectively.
  8. End Game. You are getting near that max cash stack, if you need me to tell you what to flip here then I have no idea how you got here. Prolly need 500mil to 1bil to flip here.

Putting It All Together



So now that you have all this information, I'll try to turn it into a simple set of instruction on what a normal session of flipping will look like.

Log on and check your slow flips that you set up before logging out. If you managed to buy anything the night before, put it up for sale, otherwise take your slow flips down and start about 4 items that are a bit slower such as equipment by price checking them then setting up an offer to buy as many as your buy limit allows. While waiting for those to buy, price check your quick flips and start buying and selling those 2 items at a time until your buy limits run out. Pause your quick flips whenever you get any of your slower flip items and start selling them since they will take a little bit. Do this til you've either done every item you can think of or it's time to log off. Set up buy offers for slow flips in all your spaces so that you have a higher chance of getting one. Repeat as desired.

Grand Exchange pillar.png

The Grand Exchange, also referred to as GE, was released on 26 February 2015 following a poll where it narrowly passed the 75% threshold. The GE is a trading system for players to purchase and sell tradeable items in RuneScape. Members get eight Grand Exchange slots, in which they may buy or sell items; however, free players are limited to three.

Traders do not need to advertise, meet each other, or even wait at the Grand Exchange for trades to finish, because coins and items from fully and partly finished trades can be collected at any bank or deposit box. Additionally, players will receive a message in their chatbox when the status of a trade offer is updated. This trading system resembles a real-life electronic assist exchange and has since replaced the Trading Post and the older marketplaces in Varrock and Falador.

Location

The Grand Exchange is located northwest of Varrock and east of Edgeville, both of which are located just south of the Wilderness. There are many ways to get there, including the following:

  • Walking (with or without use of the Varrock Teleport spell).
  • Using the tunnel northwest of the Grand Exchange (requires 21 Agility).
  • Using a canoe station (requires 12-42 Woodcutting) to travel to the Champions' Guild station, Barbarian Village station, or Edgeville station and walking north, walking east, or using the tunnel, respectively.
  • Using the spirit tree northeast of the Grand Exchange (requires completion of Tree Gnome Village). Using the Ardougne cloak's teleport takes you somewhat close to the Khazard battlefield spirit tree which can take you directly to the GE.
  • Using a charge on an amulet of glory, or fairy ring code DKR (requires access to the fairy rings from partial completion of Fairytale II - Cure a Queen), to get to Edgeville and then using the tunnel.
  • Using the Varrock Teleport spell from the Standard spellbook, a Varrock teleport tablet, or a POH Varrock portal in a Portal Chamber (requires 25 Magic, and 50 Construction to build a portal)
    • If you have completed the Varrock medium diary, you can toggle these Varrock teleports to take you directly to the Grand Exchange.
  • Using a charge on a ring of wealth.

Item sets

File:GE item set exchange.png

Main article: Item set

Most armour sets and the dwarf multicannon can be assembled into sets to save space. They behave like ordinary items except that they cannot be worn or used until disassembled. Only the Grand Exchange clerks and bankers can assemble or disassemble sets, and they will do so an unlimited number of times for free.

Ultimate ironmen may not assemble items into sets.

NPC guides

Around the Grand Exchange are six guides who show the current prices of various items.

Additionally, James can be found outside the Grand Exchange main entrance, and gives information about membership bonds.

Pricing

Prices are partly governed by the laws of supply and demand:

  • If an item's demand is higher than supply, then its price will increase.
  • If an item's supply is higher than demand, then its price will decrease.
  • If an item's demand matches its supply, then its price will not change.

Jagex has never published the Grand Exchange's exact pricing algorithms, although there are some reasonable guesses. The prices of items are updated depending on its recently traded prices and volume. For items with low trade volume such as partyhats, their prices update every few days or even once a week. Jagex can also intervene and set the prices themselves, and they reserve the right to intervene when they believe price manipulation is occurring on an inexcusable scale, or when items that appear more expensive than their actual value are used for scamming. The Grand Exchange Market Watch contains up-to-date information on the prices for various items.

Buy limits

File:GE offer.png

Main article: Grand Exchange/Buying limits

Buying rate is restricted to a certain quantity every 4 hours. Some items have a connected limit, meaning that you can only buy a certain amount of either item, or a mix of the two up to a particular point. For example, if the player has reached the limit on 4-dose Prayer potions, they cannot buy Prayer potions of fewer doses. However, there are no restrictions on selling items.

Non-tradeable items

Main article: Grand Exchange/Non-tradeable items

Some items cannot be traded using the Grand Exchange, but can still be traded using traditional player-to-player trade. For example, burnt foods cannot be traded with the GE service, and have no in-game value.

Other items with a similar property include partially charged jewellery (games necklace) or equipment (black mask), half-eaten food items (slice of cake), recipe items (uncooked cake), currency (platinum tokens), and Castle Wars bandages.

New players

New free-to-play accounts cannot sell or buy certain items on the Grand Exchange until they have acquired at least 10 quest points, spent 20 hours in-game and has a total skill level of 100. This limitation is easily lifted by completing some of the following quests:

Music unlocked

Trivia

  • A short jingle plays when a buy or sell transaction is completed on the Grand Exchange, which contains the beginning melody from The Trade Parade accompanied by flutes and other whimsical elements.

OSRS: 5 Ways to make money on the Grand Exchange

There are many ways of making money in Runescape. Some have little requirements, while others require high leveled skills or the ability to PVM the strongest bosses. The Grand Exchange, however, you could even make money in your sleep!

What is the Grand Exchange?


The Grand Exchange (GE) allows players to buy and sell tradeable items on the market without direct interaction. Long gone are the days of needing to advertise your trades for hours on end in Varrock Bank or Falador Park. The Grand Exchange also offers guidelines on item prices based on trade volume history, taking out a lot of the guesswork and research regarding your item's value.

Getting Started


Before you jump straight into the methods, there are a few things to keep in mind when attempting to make a profit on the Grand Exchange.

The first of these is capital. Before you can sell, you must buy it. For any of the following methods, you will need some OSRS Gold to get started. Some of these methods require a small amount to get started with, others you will need substantially more. Generally, the more gold you have available, the more adaptable you'll be for taking advantage of opportunities. More gold also allows you to use multiple of these methods at once.

Secondly, nothing on the Grand Exchange is guaranteed. It is a live market, regularly being used by thousands of active players trading their items. Some items and their prices are more stable than others, and therefore more likely to be predictable. But even those change over time.

Thirdly, with the market forever changing. What workedyesterday may not work today. You must take the time to check the prices before making purchases. You may want to dive in and continue where you left off, but always ensure to check prices before you click that buy button!

Lastly, and maybe most importantly, all of these methods require some element of patience. You must have the ability to wait for offers to go through, to wait for trades to take place. Many of these methods take advantage of players using the Grand Exchange for instant purchases and sales. When they do that, they're overpaying and underselling.

That's where these methods come in. You want to buy low and sell high, requiring you to be more patient than the average player.

1 - Low-Risk Flipping


With a small amount of OSRS Gold, you'll be able to start low-risk flipping quite quickly. Flipping is buying an item for a low price, and selling back for a higher price. To flip with a lower risk, pick items that have a higher trade volume. These are items such as Arrows, Bars, Logs, Ores, and Runes. The large trade volume of these items ensures that your items will be easier to sell, resulting in a lower profit margin.

2 - Higher Risk Flipping


Requiring a larger amount of OSRS Gold to get started, flipping items worth more can result in much higher margins than low-risk flipping. More significant margins provide the potential for bigger profits. Higher cost items usually have lower buy limits and lower trade volumes. The guideline prices for more expensive items such as high-level Armours and Weapons are generally less accurate than those with a high trade volume. Margins for higher cost items are continuously changing, so be sure not to buy too many at once!

3 - Traditional Investment


Where flipping is fast-paced constant buying and selling action, investment is a long-game tactic. The investment concept is to find one particular item at an all-time lower price than usual, stocking up on it, then selling your collection as the price rises. Now leaving offers in for multiple days comes into play, allowing you to buy your items and sell them off while you're doing other things in the game or when not in the game at all. Investment has its risks. Prices are not guaranteed to rise. Take some time to check out the Oldschool Grand Exchange website's graphs before plunging all your money into one item.

4 - Speculative Investment


This type of investment is more of a risk. Just like a traditional investment, the concept is to buy bulk quantities of particular items. Rather than basing your predictions on history and graphs, however, this time, you'll be looking into the future based on upcoming updates. For example, if a new boss is due to release and the primary combat method is Range, players will need equipment for ranging next month. They will also require supplies such as food or Ranging Potions. Knowing far enough ahead of time, you can stock up on these and sell them as the prices peak, and the hype is high. Remember, other people will be doing this too, there is no guarantee, but when you hit the nail on the head, the rewards are fruitful.

5 - New Items


Oldschool Runescape is a frequently updated game with continuous new content and items brought into it. A Merchant always looks forward to updating the day. New items mean unknown prices, the guide price means little, supply is usually low, and the demand typically high. Recommended for more experienced merchants, buying new items and flipping them for profit can be hugely advantageous. The prices on new items are at their most volatile. You could lose money just as quickly as you could make it: high risk, but great potential for high reward.

Good Luck!


There you have it, five ways to utilize the Grand Exchange.

Flipping and Investing can be a lot of fun as well as being lucrative. Remember, sometimes you may lose a little on a trade, or an item may not sell as well as you'd hoped, but that's all part of the experience. The more you use these methods, the greater your ability will become in market awareness, and the easier you will find it to spot those worthwhile investments.
