Kind of like in Real Life, where nobody discusses their Salary for some reason, I figure why not post what I can from my time malling! I used Neomallers Portal through the whole experience, and will post the numbers (which are not perfect, days got missed, things got reset here and there), for my time as Training, Luck and Maps in the Graduates.

My numbers may be better than some, and worse than others, but in the end, I enjoyed the experience of running a shop, from an independent size 30 Garden and Homes shop who had never heard of Malls, to a Book shop in the Playground, to Managing the Playground, to joining the Graduates as Training, Luck and Maps, to Managing the Graduates.

So, here goes!!! Stat Dump!
**Statistics - Overview - 06/08/2010 to 28/04/2016 (1945 Days)
198,773 items have sold for a total of 1,773,861,934 NP
You have spent 1,489,671,916 NP
This is a profit of 284,190,018 NP (19.08%)

***Your CURRENT performance each day***
(Based on data averaged from 22/04/2016 to 28/04/2016)
Items Sold: 68
Sales : 619,993 NP
Costs : 524,689 NP
Profits : 95,304 NP ( 18.2% )

***Your Overall Performance each day***
(Based on data from 06/08/2010 to 28/04/2016)
Items sold: 102
Sales: 912,011 NP
Costs: 765,898 NP
Profits: 146,113 NP

****Shop Statistics****
(Last Full Update: 4:15:54 PM on 04/12/2015)
Items stocked: 3199
Value: 46,473,536 NP
Stock Statistics: 2.1 stocked for each unique item, on average

Based on current performance , your shop will empty in approximately 84.3 days

Yes, this means I earned far more restocking / reselling / through the AAA / Charity Corner than I ever really did MALLING. But Malling was more fun, especially the Managing portion, because I actually got to interact with my other shop keepers on a regular basis! Well, until I hit the Grads, where we were all comfortable and complacent in our spots (which, in reality, is that good?)

Of course, this is comparing apples to oranges, as my stock would change over the years. Some of the PEAK profit months came from individual days where something BIG happened, like a huge shop buyout (well, not a BUYOUT, but many millions at once), to events like the Halloween Gift Bags when I sat online for hours at a time.

Not fair on the One doubloon coin really though, since I used it for a couple months as a 'Come to my shop' and priced it WAY low by the hundreds happy

None of this takes into account WC Maps, which were fun to stock, price, and make HUGE profits (or losses) from. Buy up 20 of one piece at an average of 30K, and sell them one at a time for 85K because that was the market? Huge profits per piece! Until you got stuck with the extra 12 because the price plummeted before you could sell them all off again. That was a rare thing to do, as I don't like price gouging, but most people collecting WC maps from shops have the NP to burn anyway.

All stats above are obviously only from my time as Training, Luck and Maps. Because I can, let me load up some OLDER stats happy

You can see I spent a lot of time restocking in BBooks at this time, handy as it paid for most of my upgrades to Main Market, AND most of getting my Booktastic Gold Badge! When BBooks started deflating, and restocking started getting much harder (the rise of the Bots?), I stopped restocking there so much and switched over to Auction Sniping and the Attic (I was HUGE in the attic for a long time too!)

Hi Zixianna,

Congrats on all you accomplished in all your malling days happy

I never keep track of my daily, monthly profits, I honestly wouldn't even know how lol. I used to do the training thing, and did okay at it much like you but I found that I was way to consumed with trying to get views than profits lol. I swapped to wearables as it is easier to maintain and one of the more profitable categories. I also like that it is a large database as if I don't stock for a little while people don't really notice like they did with training.

Best of luck with all your future endeavours!

nice. seems like your shop has been doing much better than mine with codestones and training items. not quite sure but I'm lucky if I clear 20 items daily. usually for about 30% profit.
