This is alink to my shop: http://www.neopets.com/browseshop.phtml?owner=sa5mmm7 it's almost fully stocked, but i have a question about stock numbers. Is it recommended to have for example 5 of certain stocks, then leave the rest however, should I increase my shop size? I started only restocking when i felt like it then once my safety deposit box emptied out I invested 200k in my shop, 100k in stocks and 100k in size. So far I made back my money, but it seems to have slown down. And i still have some of the stock in my safety deposit box. I'm not sure if it's because of how much stock i have in my shop (people seemed to buy a few at once as opposed to just one at a time), or if it is because of my prices.

For things that sell a lot (1-2 a day), i keep like 5-10. For things that sell super crazy, i once kept 200+ in stock since i got so tired of stocking them over and over tongue

But for most things, i only keep 1-2. If it's expensive, it'd be only 1 or i might even drop it from stock if it barely sells.

Nowadays, i think you should be fine with 1-3

Something you also may want to keep in mind is your Shop Wizard group. Your group is sf5, which means when a buyer does a SW search, your shop will appear on the same page with other users whose names begin with s, f and 5. If you price your items to be lowest or near lowest in your SW group, they will sell faster...even if they're less expensive in other SW group lists.

Also...variety is key. The more items you stock, the more often users will find your shop in a search and visit it. And often shoppers will buy more than they were originally seeking.
