A Guide To
Pricechecking is the process of giving out margins from the latest post on forums, taking updates from the channel and updating the margins. Then, once you have finished pricechecking, updating the forum with the newest margins. Before you start with pricechecking, make sure that you're familiar with the channel rules, the item list, and all abbreviations used within the channel.
By pricechecking within FlipChat1, you're helping to ensure that the channel is active, margins are current, and that channel users are able to make the most profit possible. Pricechecking is free to do and will not cost you anything. After meeting certain criteria you will be able to earn yourself a rank within the channel - guaranteeing you access to the channel even when it is full.
Pricechecking has been made easier due to the introduction of the RuneScape© Companion App. This is a web-application that allows you to log into a RuneScape account and access some game functionality such as chat channels and the Grand Exchange. It is advised to make a second RuneScape account to use on the app whilst playing on your main account through the game client. The app will also allow you to copy and paste, making it easier to give margins within the channel.
Whilst pricechecking, giving margins is very simple! When requested by a channel user for an item, all you have to do is enter the item abbreviation and price into the friends chat.
