Selling stacks of one....Thats a big pain in the ass. Especially when the guy doing it is selling each one for 7g and buying a stack of 20 is roughly 100g.Sure sometimes you only need one but at least sell in stacks of 5 instead of just one....

Why? It's called liquidity. I don't do it for everything--I usually skip cloth, leather, and herbs--but other things sell better in stacks of 1. People WILL pay a premium to only have to buy one. How does this make your life worse?

I often feel the opposite, when people have things up in stacks of 5, but I only need 1, so I have to waste money and time buying a 5-stack and then selling back the extras.I will very often sell things in singles if they are not items like cloth/leather/herbs/ore that people almost always buy in bulk. That way people can choose how many they want to buy, rather than being stuck with extras they don't want.

Let me top that with the horror stories to end all AH horror stories.There's a bank alt famous on the Alliance side of Shadow Council for selling single, stackable items on the AH. His name is Banktar! *DUN DUN DUN* He is well known for 5 pages of nothing but single arcane dusts.But then, he really outdone himself. One day he bought 3 stacks of arcanite arrows off of the AH and then proceeded to SEPARATE SINGLE ARROWS off the stacks and put them on the AH. There was over 10 PAGES OF SINGLE ARROWS on the AH from Banktar.It was beautiful and frightening at the same time.

Let's not forget the third nasty AH undercut: the Monopoly. Buying up all of the current items on the market and reselling them at 2x the price. My guildies butchered the price of copper ore and wool cloth on Sentinels-H a while back (right after BC launched), the prices still fluctuate despite the fact that we rarely ever play there anymore due to similar people with similar goals.

The is that everyone wanted to make more by selling stacks of one, if you need more than that thats too bad. There was one stack of twenty, and if you want to get several enchants that are dust heavy you either A) cant B) buy/find greens and get them D/E'd which can be a hassle in its own right or C) self induce carpal tunnel.Its fine for a page or two but having no bigger stacks is a pain.
