So you want to be the most excellent Roblox trader and reach the top of the trade business. Well, there are many things to consider if you want to grow your Robux and Item value.
One thing most players don’t understand is RAP also known as Recent Average Price. To understand RAP, you first need to understand the business of trade.
Recent Average Price or RAP is the price the item is sold by many resellers in the past and combines into one average value. RAP increases when the item is sold for more than its current value and decreases when sold lower than its current RAP.
Recent Average Price is also determined by the number of items it is constantly traded upon.
How RAP fluctuates?
By using the selling price of an item and subtracting it from rap you will get the result. Now divide the result by ten and add or subtract the later value with the actual RAP, you will get the final result.
For more accurate results. Use this formula.
When RAP Increases
|18,000(Lowest Price) – 10,500(RAP) = 7500|
7500 / 10 = 750
10,500 + 750 = 11250
When RAP Decreases
|10,500(RAP) – 5,500(Lowest Price) = 5000|
5000 / 10 = 500
10,500 – 500 = 10000
RAP vs Value
Value is what an item is actually worth whereas the Recent Average Price fluctuates and changes the price of the limited item. The selling price is determined by the owner and they can put any price tag on their limited items.
How to View Resellers for Limited items?
The Best Price you see before buying the limited item is the lowest price set by the seller. You can view the list of sellers by going inside the purchase page and scrolling down to the Reseller section. Here’s how you do it.
- Open the browser and log in to the Roblox site.
- Click on Avatar Shop.
- Inside the Filters section under Sales Type, click on Collectables.
- Click on the item you want to buy. You can view the RAP of that item on the lower right side of the Price Chart.
- Scroll down and you can see Resellers trying to sell you at their preferred price. The lowest among them will be on Best Price.
You can check out the comparison between RAP and value on this website where the RAP amount has its specific value. You can use Rolimon’s website to analyze items and all the general information of specific limited items.
How Projected Items Fluctuate RAP?
Projected Items are those items that have been sold at a much higher price to temporarily raise the RAP of the item. If you see a huge gap between RAP and the previous selling price from the Price chart, consider it as a Projected Item.
It is really risky to invest in projected items because the price gradually drops down to its actual value. You can view the Price Chart and study more about items to determine if it is projected or not.
To conclude, RAP is just a reflection of the current selling price but it can be manipulated in the market, making it a projected item and drastically increasing the RAP. Make sure to learn more about the item you are trying to buy through research and inspecting the Price Chart.
