The Shop Wizard is a tool used by most Neopians (more commonly used by restockers and Neopian economists) to find the rough lowestprice. Using the Shop Wizard (or more fondly known as the SW) is simple. All you must do is ype in the items name and press enter; however you may specify this further; you may change identical to my phrase, add an estimated value or even search galleries. Contrary to popular belief; the shop  wizard will not give you the absolute lowest prices, it will give you a selection or a "list". The list is specified by the users first letters of their name, so it is suggested to use the lowest price from 8 different refreshes. There is now the Super Shop Wizard (SSW) which will give you the lowest price in Neopia.

Discussion on how the shop wizard works and history

A Shop Wizard, or SW, is a JubJub with amazing powers, which can find specific items in users shops and teleport you to them. His powers are limited though, and can only find average prices of the item. Also, it does not search all shops but divides the shops into groups of roughly equal sized based on alphabetical order and it searches the groups on rotation.

The Super Shop Wizard is an enhanced form of the Shop Wizard, and always finds the very cheapest of a searched item. The use is limited and random, and is only available for Premium members.

Using The Shop Wizard

The Shop Wizard is used by many Neopians as a tool to find an approximate low price for an object. This may be useful for pricing an item they intend to sell in their shop or on the Trading Post, to determine what a good price at which to buy or restock an item would be, or to value an item.

To search the Shop Wizard, the name or part of the name must be entered into the search box on the Shop Wizard page, and the search button clicked. A user can also choose whether to search for the search term exactly as it is or to search for object's names containing the search term.

Additionally, a maximum and minimum price can be included to filter search results, and the user can set the Shop Wizard to search galleries instead of user-owned shops.

Faerie Quests

When a user has a Faerie Quest, they are unable to use the Shop Wizard. Because of this rule many guilds and communities with the purpose of helping others find their items have been created, because while one user is unable to use the Shop Wizard, another can. There is also a Quests section in the Neoboards for this purpose as well. Users which help others this way are sometimes called Quest Partners, and they will search for the item on the Shop Wizard and either:

  • Give the username of of the shop owner to the user with the quest.
  • Buy the item and put it up in the Trading Post for the user.
  • Give the item freely to the user.

Quest Partners are usually two users who live in the same or similar time zones. It's against Neopets Terms and Conditions for one user to use a side account to find their quest item, but not against NeoFriends or strangers finding the items for a user.
