1. All jagex rules apply, both on the forums and in-game. Any breaking of such rules will be breaking a clan rule, consequences vary, depending on which rule is broken.
2. Please be mindful of people who are new to flipping, their questions may be annoying, but you were in their boat when you first started.
3. The Chat is a drama free zone. If you have problems with other players, please don’t direct them to the clan chat and cause arguing, just simply leave the clan chat till you have calmed down.
4. No asking for ranks, if you think you deserve a rank because you have done the clan a good service, then it will have been duely noted by the generals or officers. We take notice of all actions, good or bad, and in no time you will have a shiny new rank next to your name.
5.Respect other players, treat others as you would expect them to treat you.
6. Please keep a minimum of 15 minutes between bumps, otherwise it is considered spamming.

-•°´¯`°•-,¸¸,-» Mini Flipping Guide «-,¸¸,-•°´¯`°•-
What is "Flipping"? Well, Flipping is buying any item or items in the GE for a "low" price, then reselling for a higher price.
This is probably the most fast and effective way of making money there is on Runescape, with the amount you make depending on the amount of money you have available to "Flip" with.
-•°´¯`°•-,¸¸,-» How to Flip «-,¸¸,-•°´¯`°•-
If you are flipping single items such as Sara/Zammy/Guthix sets or Barrows, Godswords, claws etc. First try buying at a price a small percentage under the Guide price, maybe a few hundred K. If you dont have any luck buying it at that price within half an hour to an hour increase the offer. On the other hand if it buys instantly at that price with a large amount of cash back you may want to resell for the price you bought as the item is most likely "crashing". This means you will probably not be able to make much profit out of it.
To make the most money out of something it should always take time to buy and then time to sell, dont expect to make cash off something that buys instantly.
Once you have bought your item(s) dont get too greedy and try to sell for a price much higher then you bought it for. A 200-500k flip with a 10-20m bank is a good flip ;)
Another tip is, never try to buy items for a rounded figure. For example, if you think 2.5m would be a good price to buy a zamorak set for, always increase your offer to something like 2,512,555 GP, to beat the people buying at 2,500,000 neat. The extra 12k or so will save you alot of time, and make you alot more money then the 12k you spent in the long run.

-•°´¯`°•-,¸¸,-» How to Flip Continued «-,¸¸,-•°´¯`°•-
Using seperate GE tabs is also another way to speed up flipping. If you put an offer in to buy 2 claws in the same tab, after the first pair buys the next time somebody sells a pair it will check everyones else offers before yours, because you have just been sold a pair in that tab. If you have an offer in another tab, then you are effectivley the next buyer in the line, and will get sold the next pair some body sells.
Merching Ores/bars/logs is also an effective way to flip. Although i have never personally tried this method, it can work just as well.
To start flipping first test buy an item, say a gold ore for 1k. Note the instant buy price and then sell it for 1 gp and note the instant sell price.
Once you have these two prices, put offers to buy ores in 1-2GP above the instant sell price and then once you have bought all you can sell them for 1-2GP bellow the instant buy price. You can also re-check thse prices while you are buying to make sure they havent changed.

-•°´¯`°•-,¸¸,-» What to Flip with the cash you have «-,¸¸,-•°´¯`°•-
What you can flip successfully depends on the amount of cash you have available to work with. The following items are a guide to what you should flip with the amount of cash you have:
To flip with success i would first recommend getting a 20m cash stack to begin with, although you can start with a lower amount which will result in smaller profits.
-Armour parts
-Addy (g), Black (g), Wiz (g), Guthix, Zammy, Sara Sets/Parts
-Barrows Items/Sets
-Dragon bones
-Bgs/SS/Whips/ZGS/Mage book/Master Wand

-Wiz (g), Black (g), D'hide (g) Sara/Guthix/Zammy Armours
-Barrows, Whip, Sara Sword, BGS/ZGS, Robins, Mage book, Master Wand.
-Claws, Fury, Ranger Boots, AGS.
-Wiz (g), Black (g), D'hide (g) Sara/Guthix/Zammy Armours
-Barrows, Whip, Sara Sword, BGS/ZGS, Robins, Mage book, Master Wand.
-Claws, Fury, Ranger Boots.
-AGS, 3rd Age.
-Spirit Shields
-All small rares (Santa, H'weens, Easter, Pumpkins).
-Barrows, Whip, Sara Sword, BGS/ZGS, Robins, Mage book, Master Wand.
-Claws, Fury, Ranger Boots.
-AGS, 3rd Age.
-Spirit Shields
This is all i can comment on, as it is all the Cash i have. I probably have missed items, so if you have any suggestions let me know :)
When i flipped my way from 20-70m i did it all in F2p, last year doing zammy and sara sets. It was alot harder then because of the GE limits, where you could only buy 2 sets per 4 hours. You can still only buy 2 sets per 4 hours, but if you re sell them, you can buy another 2. Making for great flipping ;).
