The Shop Wizard is used by many Neopians as a tool to find an approximate low price for almost any [[Item|item]] in user shops.

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.

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

The Shop Wizard (SW for short) is a JubJub released on (need date). Found in the The Neopian Marketplace, the Shop Wizard is always looking for bargains throughout Neopia, and with his magic can find specific items in user shops, and teleport other users to their locations.

Using the Shop Wizard

The Shop Wizard is used by many Neopians as a tool to find an approximate low price for almost any item in user shops. Besides used as a ways to buy certain items, users can guage what they should price items in their own shops by comparing prices, along with the value of a certain item for use in the Trading Post.

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 spelled 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.

The Shop Wizard does not search for the very lowest price of all items in Neopia, but searchs groups of shops of roughly equal sized based on alphabetical order in rotation. While it is said to be this way because the Shop Wizard's powers are limited, this is in fact a system implemented by The Neopets Team to make thegame fair, and make sure all users get a chance to have their items bought.

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 can help another user with their use of the Shop Wizard by either:

  • Giving the username of a shop owner with the item to the user.
  • Buying the item and putting it up in the Trading Post for the user.
  • Giving the item freely to the user.

Users which help others this way are sometimes called Quest Partners, who are usually two users who live in the same or similar time zones so as to help each other when it's needed.

Due to users capable of having multiple accounts, some users take advantage and finding their item using the Shop Wizard in a side account. Doing this is against the Neopets Terms and Conditions, and will fill either get the user banned or Frozen.

Super Shop Wizard

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. It's unknown if the original Shop Wizard and the Super Shop Wizard are one and the same, or two different Jubjubs.
