I purchased torchlight this morning after reading how people have been raving about it. 8 hours, 15 levels and countless murderized mobs later, I decided that to get the really GOOD gear for my character I need a good amount of GP.

That was when I noticed when I sell looted items that I don't need to the shop that I'm usually getting under 100gp per item for them. Is there any way to increase how much gp I get when I sell items?

Just of note, I learned (as a noob mistake for not doing it earlier) that sending your pet into town to sell items takes 5 mins or less, and can get 500-1500 gp per trip to sell off items I would otherwise leave laying around. Also selling extra health/mana potions helps loads. =) – Kenneth Posey Dec 19 '11 at 21:09
If you sell everything you don't need and probably won't ever use you'll hardly ever be short on gold. Off the top of my head I think my journal had over 50k collected by floor 20. – jw013 Oct 30 '12 at 20:59

No, not without installing a mod that adjusts the resale value of items. (Better Balanced Sale Prices is one.)

However, the Barter skill will reduce the purchase cost of items at vendors in town. You can start putting points into Barter at level 20, and each point lowers prices by 6%.
