Inside Trade - Future plans

Hey Inside Traders,

I wanted to pass on a huge thank you to all members past and present for your support. I do believe we have a very welcoming and helpful community and you all play the biggest part in that.

We are now in a position where we offer our members help and advice, access to trials, PVP, farming runs, lotteries both with our partnered guilds The Plague (Trials), Foul Play (PVP - EP) and with other experienced members. We are able to help those new to the game and those who have played for so long they don't even risk typing /played into the chat to see how much time spent in the game. All in a nice relaxed and friendly environment.

Now we can and need to improve and grow even stronger.

With all the above, we are primarily a trading guild. This should always be our primary focus to ensure you all have a good strong place to sell your hard earned wares.

The guild earns its money from sales taxes, lottery tickets, weekly fee and member donations. This all calculates to how much we can bid on the guild trader each week. The price of traders has increased dramatically from 6 months ago, the best spots go for several millions of gold.

The longer the game continues the more guilds that will be created to then bid for the same number of traders which increases the competition for trading spots. There will always be weeks when a trade guild loses its trader, what is important is how it bounces back. It is important that every member brings value and helps to support the guild. The easiest way to do this? Sell in the guild store :) So when we have 100+ members that have made no sales in the last 30 days that is something that we need to try to improve. We can securely hold a strong trader location every single week with everyone being active and that is the plan. We do not want to be a guild that runs a harsh regime with its members but we also have to look after the interests of our guild and its active members.

The ranks within the guild will change to this and be updated each sunday after the trader bidding:

  • Guild Leader
  • Administrator
  • Overlord                    Officers of the guild
  • Guild Champion       Members who organise events
  • Guild Investor          Single donations of 250k+ to trader fund
  • Plague Hero              Members of The Plague
  • Elite Trader               1m+ in sales over 30 day period
  • Top Trader                500k+ in sales over 30 day period
  • Inside Trader            Active sellers
  • Trader (No Sales)     No sales within the last 30 days

The sales will be calculated over a 30 days rolling period to give a better overview of sales and will allow for good/bad weeks etc. We will also look at replacing members that have made no sales in the last 30 days, members who have been offline for more than 21 days (seems like a reasonable length of time to give members plus they can rejoin once they return to the game) and removing members that have a negative balance on their website account and have not paid the fees.

All of the above will change very little for active members and will help us to grow and become more stable.

Once again thank you for your continued support, I will carry on trying to add as much as I can to what is available to our members. If you have any suggestions please feel free to contact me.

Happy trading!

I am happy to help anyone who wants to improve their resource farming, I have spent time and effort developing routes and builds to maximise efficiency. :)

Maybe it would be good to count purchases inside the guild too ? It would motivate members to buy something even if it's slightly overpriced, or they don't need it right now...

sounds like some good plans for the future, you have my support :). with a bit of effort it shouldn't be hard to get at least some sales, so 30 days seems like more than enough time to see if someone sells well.

Thank you all very much :) All help is hugely appreciated, most of you are far more knowledgeable than me when it comes to farming and making gold :) If anyone would like to hold any events/sessions or write any articles/tutorials for the site let me know :) Gadrael, I did think about looking at who was purchasing from the guild too and it does make a difference for us. The priority is that we have members selling to start with, otherwise they could just visit the trader and not be a member. But I will look at a way to include it for people that are doing both :) I was also looking at an incentive for existing members to recruit new members, with some kind of reward or benefit. But it needs work :)

This seems by far the fairest of the trade guilds in ESO. IT has a nice community and good leadership from what I've seen, this is why I focus my sales efforts here. If there's anything I can do to help out, please let me know.
