Prices fluctuate throughout the season, but most sellers do not update their prices accordingly, so there is an automated sale/discount feature implemented:
The item unit price is dropped
by 25% after 15 days
by 50% (of the previous value) after 30 days
by 75% (of the previous value) after 60 days
These automated discounts ensure that an item for sale increases its bargain value over time.
Be sure to get all your items out from the HWS Connect Marketplace before a full wipe! ALL OFFERS WILL BE DELETED during a full wipe!
