Now can you explain to them that when you sell in bulk you discount the price per item versus when you sell individually?

That is only the case b/c of how RL handles advertising and incentives to the public. Really there is no real economic reason to put bulk items cheaper as the individual items besides beating out that buyer nervousness and getting them to buy your bulk.All about incentives, and many times you can corner the market (or take advantage of a strangely empty one) and place prices as you see fit.

Discount? What's the point of that? I don't know about you, but I personally jack the price of things in bulk rather than individually. People will pay it! I can sell 1 Large Prismatic Shard for 25.99. That's not bad, but someone's going to under cut me and it's going to waste my time and I might not even sell that single shard. However, I can take a stack of 6 large Prismatic Shards, perfect for someone who wants to buy a ready-to-go stack to enchant their fancy new weapon with +dmg or whatever and list that stack of 6 for 169.99. I jacked the price of each shard by 2g or so. I guarantee that stack will sell QUICKER than the individual shards! My only assumption at this point is that people in WoW are terrible at math and just don't care how much things cost if they can get it with one click rather than 12. The AH is not Costco. You shouldn't expect to get a discount on anything at all, especially when people aren't given a "price per unit" sort of measurement on their screen without some help.
