Hello..

Not sure how many people still utilize this program, but I was wondering if the database is still updated ?

I don't have too specific of an answer for you, but I will say that for the most part it is. However, there are a few items such as the god forsaken Peanut Butter & Jelly Waffle Sandwich, that Abrosia keeps buying. The item stocks for ~4000NP, and it sells for almost nothing, but Abrosia doesn't show an estimated profit for it upon purchase -- which leads me to believe there is something wrong with the crawler that updates the database. 

 

P.S. Abrosia buying this item all the fucking time is partially my fault, as I have the option to buy items that don't have an estimated profit first.

If I could fix the issues with those kinds of items, I would. For now, it's as updated as it can be since it checks for prices in the background. Sadly, our prices are not the lowest an item will sell for, and it seems the pricing mechanism may be confused by outlier pricers, so sometimes you'll get items that aren't worth anything but are in the database as having profit.

I've noticed this a lot. Items being bought that sell for a lot less than what the DB estimates.

Looking at an item like the Aggressive Casserole—the estimated price is nowhere near what it actually sells for.

 

I'm ending up buying a lot of stuff that's making a loss! Any tips to work around this?

I noticed I was actually losing NP when my profit was 5-10k, I changed it to 15k and it's doing better now

I honestly think manual changes into the DB should be possible - idk, maybe the admins could make the changes? or members could suggest price changes and admins revise it, like in jellyneo

You can try raising your profit margin, which risks not buying a ton, or make a restock list which is only for 1 shop so you wouldn't be able to switch shops.

Yeah, I think it is advisable to simply use manual restock lists tbh. And then just buy from shops one by one.
