Selling YoCash is one of the YoVille related topics almost always guaranteed to divide all. At what rate to sell?
YoCash is a currency all of its own. It is bought with ‘real’ money and is resold by no ‘set’ value. YoVille has its own ‘average’ rate of YoCash conversion which will vary from time to time. It carries a usual average value which is set by time but is also set by the value and demand of the item that is being sold at the time.
What do I mean by this? Well, at present, the average rate of YoCash is quite high. 1 new hair can = around 100 – 120k. However, the rate can also depend on the item being sold and its popularity. An item that is newly released or older and more sought after can command a higher rate of YoCash – which with knowledge of items can arm the YoCash seller with more power equalling a greater exchange rate.
3 day sales are a great example. These sales enable the YoCash seller to ask a high exchange rate for items in the duration of the sale as they are able to give the impression that items that are currently available now are available at this rate and are in threat of being available at a much higher rate after the sale ends. Buyers without access to YoCash will often give in to this threat and buy at these inflated prices initially in case the prices do rise out of control after the sale has ended making them unaffordable to them.
This is a mean form of emotional or financial blackmail but is a real threat as who knows how high or low the prices will go at the end of the sale. The Mafia II sale for instance caused a massive flop costing hoarders and YoCash buyers Millions as the prices dropped and the items have to this day not recovered their anticipated value. However, Burlesque items rose in value and have kept their inflated value to this day.
This is the trick that is used by sellers frequently and enables them to price jack items ahead of time and instills the fear that the price later will be much higher and, no one can forsee the after price, hence those without access to YoCash will pay the high asking prices incase the prices are much higher and even too high after the sale has ended.
Aside from these intermittent sales, is the price of YoCash fair? Well, that depends what it is. I have said that 5-7 is the average selling price but as we all know, this is not ‘the’ selling price. There are those individuals that believe that because they have access to YoCash either bought by their own money or received as a gift to themselves for a birthday or other occasion that the choice is their own what to sell it for. This is correct in one way – the way that they can put whatever selling price on their items that they like, but is it fair to do so?
We often hear that the only people that disagree with these inflated selling prices are the ones that don’t have to spend their hard earned money on YoCash but those that just earn theirs in game and don’t have to take the loss. Is that entirely true though? I think not – personally. I used to be a frequent YoCash seller earlier on in the game. I used to sell at a price that I thought was fair, one that I myself would be happy to buy at. This was often less than the average. Even now, if I have more YoCash than I need, I will pay it forward with a little help to others and at less than the average. Often gifting items also to recompense where I don’t like the inflated prices.
Yes it is a game and yes, I put in real money, but I also remember those that can’t do this for one reason or another and how it feels not to be able to have an item I really would like because it is a short month or for whatever reason. That to me is only one time. I know there are many that never do or never will have access to YoCash and love the game and items in it as much as I do.
There is as much joy and satisfaction in helping someone to own an item they really want as to sell an item for an inflated price and earning a large amount of coins. I suppose it all depends on what aspect of the game gives you more enjoyment.
I enjoy getting the items I want and I enjoy gifting to others or helping others to get the items they want also. What I don’t get is seeing how people can enjoy the YoCoins they get after fleecing others for a rate of 10-1 YoCash or more. How greedy is this? What sort of person do you have to be to think that this is okay?
Oh and yes – as I say, I do buy YoCash. I am not a person who relies on others to buy it for my enjoyment – I have said that. I am not rich – YoRich or otherwise. I have some YoCoins but not loads and what I have I enjoy buying a few in-store trinkets and clothing items – sometimes hairs, but mainly, I get enjoyment from gifting my friends.
What I hate is hearing people boast about the rate that they charge shamelessly for YoCash and those that try to persuade others that charging stupidly over the odds for YoCash is okay, just to ease their own greedy conscience and make it okay for them to carry on their own selfish and greedy existence. Well, all I have to say to you is that it’s not big and it’s not clever and what goes around will no doubt come around. To those that do this, enjoy it while you can because one day, it may be you on the opposite end, buying all you can with the little you have.
