    As much as you have time to acquire things to sell.

    I typically sell raw mats and alchemy reagents. If I farm a lot, I can make 1 mil gold a week, but most times I dont farm a lot.

    Rawlkha is a good trading spot, so I'm sure you could.

    Alchemy reagents (keen eye helps a ton), raw max level mats, and jewelry dust all tend to be decent sellers if you enjoy farming. If you are on PC, I recommend using Master Merchant or Tamriel Trade Center to help with pricing.

    Do keep in mind that when I was selling 1 mil a week, that was when I spent a lot of time farming. I had some regular routes I ran that I knew well. Craglorn for nirncrux, starting islands for mats, Bangkorai or other zones with good sets if I felt like picking chests as well.

    On pc EU platinum dust sells for about 12 - 15k per 200. I make slightly better returns by refining but it's a gamble. Did 450 about 2 days ago and got 5 chromium grains. Last week I refined 4k and only got about 15. The zircon ones drop a lot though and sell fast and for about 22k a plating.

    You can sell a Zircon plating for 30-35k easily, mines sell within 24 hours usually. You get the grains by deconstructing or refining. I prefer deconstructing, I play a lot of BGs, they give me useless purple jewelry, which I then deconstruct to get zircon grains, refine, make a plate and put it for sale. I can make two plates in a day usually, one if I'm being lazy. So that's about 60k gold a day.

    Tempering Alloys and Dreugh Was sell for good amounts too.

    Last week I got a purple spell strategist ring and an inferno staff. Sold ring for 180k and Inferno staff (training) for 110k.

    So I think 300k gold can be made very easily in a week without really "focusing" on making gold.

    Create as many alts as you can and get them certified in crafting, so that you can do daily crafting writs.

    Do not put any skill points in their main crafting passives, so that the writ rewards are still at the lowest tier, quickly making your crafters able to sustain themselves.

    10k gold is two level 50 CP 160 characters worth of daily crafting writs, lower levels will get less gold, though. You are bound to get some surveys and golden crafting materials as rewards. You can use the surveys to get more materials to sell, and you can sell the golden crafting materials too.

    Top earner in my guild is pushing 2.5-3 million a week. We know this because the top 5 are posted publicly and they get extra rewards plus are eligible for an additional raffle. But to be fair that guy treats ESO like a full time job. Our guilds minimum is 100k sales.

    It really depends on several factors. How much time you're willing to put in to farming/grinding, whether you'd want to farm/grind for mats or for gear, where the trade guilds(s) you're in are situated, how much you price your stuff for, etc.

    Full stacks of raw mats can sell for a nice amount because people decon them for the chance at getting tempers. If you PvP a lot, you can spend AP on desired Gold Jewelry to sell for gold (and also on Akaviri and Militant Ordinator chapters). Doing Imperial City, if you have the DLC, can get you a lot of Tel-Var stones you can use to buy gear and other items to sell for gold. If you farm for really popular overworld or Cyrodill sets, you can get hard-to-obtain or popular Weapons or Jewelry that sell for a lot (so long as the stuff has a good Trait). Guild traders in the 'populated' areas like Mournhold, Rawl'kha, Daggerfall, and Belkarth will see their wares moving faster than out-of-the-way traders because those areas are high traffic. Pricing your stuff a little lower than average (Master Merchant, aka MM, will show you the average items have sold for across the guilds you're in, and can help with that) can help it sell faster regardless of where the guild(s) you're in have their traders situated.

    Keep in mind most of these things will take some level of time and effort being devoted to them. Certain things, like farming raw mats, are exceptionally easy, but also tend to bore people out of their minds.

    almost all people you see who sell more then 3M a week are resellers, they only make a fraction gold profit from what they sell

    I sell 2-3M a week, mostly from craft dailies on a chunk of characters, so all I sell is 100% profit

    you can try buy 90k worth of wax and sell for 100k, you made your sales, but you didn't make gold, it's in the eye of the beholder

    12m is the most I’ve made in one week, I generally make around 5m, that’s from being in 4 trade guilds. So 3m a week down to 1.25m a week per guild. It varies though tbh, 5m total is my figure that I make when I take things easy, I need more gold this week so I’ve set my sights on 8m.

    1 mil if I'm trying (mostly raw mats), 100k minimum if I'm not trying. Nowadays it's usually on the lower end because A) there's so much else to do in the game and trading is just a side activity and B ) once you have heaps of millions of gold, earning more just doesn't seem as important.

    Also like others have said, some weeks I make more from daily crafting writs than from guild sales. You can make about 500k a week with 15 alts if you include the ornate items sold.

    if I make a bit of effort - just under a mil. if I take it easy - 100k or so. good trader locations and pricing competitively usually means that things sell quickly. taking it easy for me = not relisting daily. I tend to just sell whatever excess stuff I end up with while playing. raw mats and refinement mats are guaranteed fast sellers.

    Issue is how much you have to sell. I'm in an Rawl'kha guild and tend to sell 20 to 100K month.
    Its two ways to get loads of gold, first is to farm, this can be raw materials, motifs and other stuff who sell well.

    Second is to flip, run around and look for stuff who is sold to cheap, buy and resell.
    This is the most profitable but is an endgame in it self.
    Grinding just make you go in circles.

    On PC with the add on, a set of writs takes me 2-3 minutes per character. Stockpiling common food and potions for quest in the bank cuts it down even further.

    It is boring, so is gathering materials to sell. It's why I'm poor.

    Sometimes you can get in early & make some good $ before a bubble busts. e.g. new life writ vouchers. As for the rest I have found they all generally work out to similar returns in the end. So I do a bit of this & a bit of that to keep things fresh. I also keep a little for myself so I have a good variety of items for personal needs and i don't have to buy items at market prices eroding some of my profits. Also u are in a position to help guildies out when they are stuck.

    Depending on item that you're going to sale. Could be 300 gold or 4 million gold.
    History, like a human being, is thirsty when it wakes from its slumber…History wants to drink up an enormous amount of blood. And even if history has tired of drinking blood, that’s only in regards to the amount. But what about quality? The larger the sacrifice is, the more delighted the cruel gods will be.
