    SOTAPrices.com is now in beta!

    The goal is to provide basic information (price, etc) about item bought/sold in game.

    You can use it to research market prices, spot historic trends, find high traffic market downs, and more.

    This information is based on the discarded mail files generated when players discard receipt mails. While everyone can use the site, it relies on active players that are willing to reliably uploading their data.

    To make sharing your data as easy as possible:
    1. Download the client
    2. Run the client
    3. Update the settings
      1. Select your DiscardedMail folder
      2. Set your API key
    4. Process and upload your files when you buy/sell something
    FAQ:
    Does it upload all my discarded emails?

    Nope. It does read all of the mail files. But, it only uploaded the minimum parts of the vendor receipt mails. Your other mail (guild messages, direct trades, etc) are never uploaded.

    Will this site show all me my detailed information like sotanet did?

    Nope. For the moment, the site displays very basic “global” information. Maybe that will change in the future. But, for now, the buyer and seller information is not displayed.

    Will the client run on Windows/Linux/Mac?

    Yes!!! Well, hopefully. It is beta after all.

    Can I get graph that shows <something useful>?

    Probably. I’m always open to suggestions

    Can the client export to Excel?

    It does have an option to export the CSV files. Which Excel can work with.

    I’m an awesome community member and want to contribute my data. How?
    Start a new private conversation with me, here in the forums, and ask for access. I'll send you a link to download the client and your API key to get you going.

    Really stupid question but where is the App to download, I could not find it on the site. Unless you are talking about the sota download client, which does not work for us who are using steam.

    Until I'm confident that there are no major bugs, just send me a PM here and I will provide you a link to the client and an API key to make it work.

    @that_shawn_guy, will it take the discarded mail from multiple accounts or does each account need to be done separately?

    Awesome site! If the upload of discarded mail could be integrated into a web app that would be even more awesome. Even better, if Portalarium/Catnip could automate a daily upload using the API .. that would be amazing.

    Just added a feature to the client so it can export your receipts to CSV files. Should be helpful for importing your data into spreadsheets and such.

    It also tracks which files have not changed since the last time you updated. If you have a lot of files, it should upload a bit faster now.
