There are few options to use
1. Trade Chat
2 Auction house
I only use trade chat for High ticket crafted items for me that is the current Cataclysm crafted epics . Also when selling Mysterious fortune cards i will bark in trade chat .
The Auction House
So for selling in the auction house I use 2 different addons.
- Auction Profit master
- Auctioneer .
Auction Profit master
I will go into this in more details another day but APM is great for mass posting. I sell a lot of items and normally have about 800 auctions on the go and the great thing about apm is it allows you to set-up groups to sell .
My main group is my 1g to 99g gold and what APM allows you to do is allows you to set the minimum post value (for this group it's 1g) and also set a fallback value ( the amount to post at if no others are on the AH ) . I Mainly use this for vendor recipes as this is a main source of my income and it allows me to manage a massive number of different recipes with minimal effort .
I mainly use auctioneer for searching and snatching but i also do use auctioneer when i wither want to sell a unique item or to get a rough guide price for a item as it is good for showing the average prices and 7 and 14 day moving prices .
When to sell ?
I have most of my items on all week as I deal in low value high volume but when is best to sell ?
For the weekend
During the weekend prices will drop on many items due to increased supply but if you are wanting to sell items then a weekend is a good time to shift high volume items . Also price normally as demand increased then price your items normally and wait and alot of the time if yours is second or 3rd cheapest then then will sell .
Raid Reset Wednesday -
Make sure that if you are selling consumables then have them listed cheapest for about 6-8pm as peopel are on and looking to raid . Also for once raids are finished people will need new enchants and new gems
