Definitely good for a start, you should probably go into a bit more detail for haggling and such. IE: Tips to not have a cancelled trade, strategies to make profit, etc.

Also, you should note that tax is half as much in a shop compared to peer-to-peer trading.

Pretty good so far. Good ideas for people who need the extra cash.

Some points:
- I recommend giving links to guides of KPQ, LMPQ and Ariant PQ
- Note that some PQs can be pot-spamming for lower levels.
- You use a Gachapon Ticket you get from the CS, but the Gachapon itself is an NPC. Seemed a bit off that you wrote that Gachapon is an NX item.
- I hear SW is a decent Gacha spot too, but I havn't been on maple for a long time. 8D.
- 2x drop for NXers?
- Might want to mention where Sakura Cellions are and that they're always jam packed. (I think.)
- Note that a Merchant can also refer to a person who Merchants.
- If you are DESPERATE you could sell your daily fame to trustworthy people.

But I always failed at making money.

also merchanting can mean using the MTS system which is wat i use it to mean.
the MTS is also a way for NXers to make mesos.

-I have nothing original to say.-

Leprechauns are a faster way to get cash than Sakuras after lv 45ish. Also, Jane's Final Request, the 1st John Barricade quest, the chain of Dollhouse quests, Peace at Eos Tower, and Jane and the Wild Boar all give/most likely give scrolls worth a lot.

They drop... 600+ mesos from both forms? Plus they have some nice drops such as Steelies.

@The leprechaun part, they drop about 1.2k in the first form, then they drop 600 mesos.

I think 2x drop doubles the meos you gain.
Never used one, personally. 8D

You trade the leathers and 1k to the gangster guy next to the kerning sewers.

EDIT: Can someone move this to the money management section? I think I'm done.

Alright, that was my last edit. My guide is now OFFICIALLY FINISHED, unless it needs major changes. The small stuff won't be added, unless new content comes out.

Merchanting advice from me, which I mooched off guildees:
-Buying steel and mithril ores for 5-7k each. Refine them into plates, and sell them for 175k-225k.
Steel plates and mithril plates are one of the most needed ITCG forging items, so they sell high
-Buy scrolls at Ch 1 Kerning for cheaper than usual and sell them for ~50% more.
-Basil is a great PCer for scrolls and stuff.
-Buy leathers for 1k each (they're 2k-3k each) and make them into WGs. Then sell the WGs for 100k-125k.
-Every day, there are many cheap deals in the MTS. Get some NX by MTsing steel plates, and buy some stuff and sell it for more NX. 1.2k=3 mil. Usually.
