Making Money on Runescape by Merchanting (F2P)

An extremely easy and effective way to make money on Runescape is by merchanting,which is basically a process in which a player generates an income through buying low and selling high. More specifically, in this guide, I will cover the basic of Shop Surfing, which is essentially the same as merchanting, but less dependant on player-to-player trades.

Shop surfing can be done at several locations, with different results at different times of day. While the process is EXTREMELY easy, it is often a matter of when and where the best opportunities are available. Over time, I have found that the following locations are best for the following type of shop surfing:

Varrock General Store - General Items:

World:Any highly populated world in which players are constantly selling items to the General Store.
Strategy: Impressive profits can be turned here through the buying of various items such as Runes (of all types), Ore (preferably mithril and up), food, limpwurts, potions, and various other player made / gathered items that are generally not sold in other stores. It is highly recommended that you have at least 50,000gp before venturing into this investment. Adament Ore as well as Feathers, for example, can be bought from a general store for a fraction of its market value (causing a great return on your investment).

Varrock Rune Shop - Runes:

World: Any lowly populated world in which their are few players located in the rune shop.
Strategy: When runes are in low demand at the shop, prices for Air, Fire, Water, and Earth Runes can often reach as low as half of the market value (the value at which you can sell an item to another player. Therefore, the more runes that you can purchase at below-market price, the great your profit when you sell to other players.

As simple as it may sound, the process is even easier and exponential more profitable if you are a Member, due to the increased number of rune shops at which you can surf. F2P players on the other hand, will no doubt begin to get frustrated as they find that others, including bots, have already looted the Rune Shops and General Stores.

Using both of these locations, and a little bit of patience, I have managed to easily bring in nearly 150k per hour.

I hope this guide will help you with your Runescape financial woes. If you need any help in the game, my RSN is BNR-Flatline, and I would be more than happy to help.
