The Neolithic (New Stone Age) period, c.c 10, 000 years ago, saw the first known European merchants. Since then, there have been very few changes in the barter (trade) system, in the way of ideals. However, there has been much advancement in people's bargaining power, knowledge of worth, and acquisitiveness, allowing for ... "win-win" in most situations. To be a successful merchant, as many may already know, is not a matter of "win-win"; it's a matter of "win-happy with what they got".
2.0 From 0gp to 100, 000gp
To get a kick-start, the best thing to do is gather a lot of items, before selling, as people tend to pay more in bulk. Once you have your 100k, we'll discuss how to turn that into more.There are a few options you can choose from here, to get up to 100, 000gp. These are:
Cowhides are excellent money makers for new players, because even though you can fight your own cows, you can just go around and gather other people's off the floor. The best place to get cowhides is south of Falador (Near the crafting guild) as it is less crowded, and pretty close to Draynor Village bank. Another good place to collect Cowhides is in Lumbridge, north of the Lumbridge Castle, mainly becuase there is a bank close to there as well.
What you'll need: Collecting Cowhides require fighting cows, or simply collecting them off the ground. If you are planing on killing cows, bring a weapon along with some armour. Bringing food is optional (If you are a low level it is reccomended), but it is easier to bring an axe (of any kind) and a tinderbox to cook your own food, since the cows drop meat.
This doesn't give much, but if you are leveling combat, it adds up. For every game you win, you recieve your combat level times 10 in coins. For example, if you are level 80, 80 * 10 = 800gp. As said, this doesn't give much, but if you are a high level combat and you are training your skills, it can be worth it.
When you loot, earned or chests you recieve items that can be sold to Simon Templeton in the Agility Pyramid located in the desert. Gold items sell for more than stone and stone sell for more than pottery items. Granted, even the best artifacts only sell a few hundred gp each, it adds up after a large chunk of playtime.
