Have a rare item in your Attic? Hit the 'Check Price' link and see if there are any buyers out there. If you like their price, move that item to your [[Inventory]] and complete the sale instantly.

This means that if the [[Charity Shop]] or [[Factory Outlet]] has an item in stock, the price checker will link to this item at half price first! Every item on the site now says exactly where it comes from or originally came from. If you have a Missing Item [[Giftbox]], this will also now show for certain [[:Category:Collections|collectible]] items.

'''Additional Comments:''' (c. 15th November 2019) The old version was very outdated, with the Check Price information loading into an iframe. Although this worked well for many years, it's becoming more and more difficult to make this work well for everyone and limited how much information/space to squeeze into a tiny frame. The iframes themselves took up a lot of space and it was a lot slower. The new '''Price Checker''' now loads on the page in to a floating pop up box that you can close. You can also change how you want links to open at the '''Shop Search''' page.

The Price Checker is a feature found all over the site that was at first used to allow you to price items in your shop really quickly, as it gives the market value and the lowest price and the average price on the Shop Search! Whenever you hit a 'Check Price' link it will show you how many of the item you have in your Attic and Gallery with a fast link to them. It also will show how many of the item is currently on sale in the Trades. It will now show how many Wanted Ads there are for each item, with a quick link to them. If you have a rare item in your Attic, you can then hit the 'Check Price' link, see if there are any buyers out there, move that item to your Inventory and complete the sale instantly. It can be activated for Quests and Missions, making them easier to complete. Another useful change is that using Price Checker on any of the items in these shops will show you the price, stock level and a quick link to the shop. This means that if the Charity Shop or Factory Outlet has an item in stock, the price checker will link to this item at half price first! Every item on the site now says exactly where it comes from or originally came from. If you have a Missing Item Giftbox, this will also now show for certain collectible items.
