I resell on a regular (and profitable) basis. I don't use the resell tab, though. Instead, I have my snatch function set up to search for the items I'm interested in (mostly crafting mats, they're always in demand) that are selling for roughly 50% of what I'd sell them for (give or take a few %). For example, I'll buy up any Bronze Bars that are selling for less than 50s each and then I'll repost them for 95s each I'm continually amazed at how much. So basically, it's set up to scan for items in the 'blue' price range (less than 50% of normal) and sell them at or near 100% their value. I get a steady supply of mats to purchase and I sell most of my stuff on their auction. Also, the significant spread I insist on protects me from buying huge quantities of any one item (unless there's been a hacked account out there farming, in which case, I take the opportunity to stock up and sell slowly back). I think the key is that while everyone wants a bargain, they're willing to pay full price for something they need *now* for their profession/pot/enchant/armor. The fact that I don't gouge anyone and keep my prices at 100% (according to auctioneer) makes them seem normal and acceptable. Which, of course they are. I'm charging the 'normal' price. I just happened to get my supply at a steep bargain!
