This of course is not a part of the game and is done through third party services. This is done when you collect or buy Runescape gold and sell it to someone in exchange for real money.
Getting in-game Gold
There are thousands of ways to generate yourself a source of in-game gold in Runescape 3 and Old School Runescape. For example, one very popular method in Old School Runescape to earn some gold, is by slaying Green dragons in the wilderness.
This is an extremely popular method due to the very low difficulty there is to be able to do so. You do not need any high requirements or quest requirements to be able to do this, which is also a reason as to why it is heavily botted here. One dragon has a guaranteed chance to drop one Green dragonhide and Dragon bones.
Now, depending on your combat level, which will determine how fast you can kill these dragons, you can expect to see around 800-900k Runescape gold per hour here if you have good combat levels. This can equate to around $0.50 – $0.70 per hour from playing a simple game with low requirements. Keep in mind, a kid of any age is also capable of doing this. Some people in poorer countries would find this an extremely profitable source of income in real life for them.
Selling the Gold
Once you have managed to stack up a decent amount of OSRS gold, you will be able to sell it to third party services. All services typically follow the same process. This is to first state how much Runescape gold you wish to sell and what payment method you wish to receive your money in. The more popular methods are PayPal and cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin.
Once you have declared this information to the service/seller. They will provide you with a location, a world, and a Runescape in-game name to meet. Almost all the time, you will be expected to make the first trade as the service is typically more trusted and reliable than you appear to be.
Once you have traded over the amount you wish to sell, the seller will then send over the money using the current exchange rate for RuneScape gold to your currency. These rates are always changing every day and it is good to check up on the rates before making any trades to avoid any unexpected inconveniences. It’s always best to watch out for trends here, typically you should sell RuneScape gold on peak days and that occurs on Fridays and Saturdays.
Tips to stay safe
Once you get into the black market of Runescape 3 and Old School Runescape and start to sell your gold. You will realize there are a lot of people out there in the world, who make attempts to scam and steal your gold.
Some are imposters trying to impersonate trusted people. Some try to build their name and then cash out with their scam once someone with a large trade comes along.
A way to stay safe while making these transactions is to always check for vouches (reviews) for this particular seller and see what other people have to say about them. If you notice that there a lot of negative comments, it would be very clear to avoid this seller at all costs and to find someone else more trusted and reliable.
