Every time my inventory gets full I go to a NPC and then start comparing what the NPC offers with what other players offer for my items (NPC usually offering more).
But it's freaking annoying as the black lion list is sorted alphabetically and the NPC list matches the inventory item placement.
So I end up wasting a lot of time scrolling through the lists, trying to find the item I want to sell... isn't there any better way?

Right click your item in the inventory, select "sell on trade post" or "buy more from trading post", and see what other people are selling at/offering.

I want to buy Guild Wars 2 for my boyfriend. I found it for €25 at http://www.go2arena....ild-wars-2.html . Is this a good price? Someone on this forum recommended me buying it, but i don't want overpaid.

What sorting hat said.

Holy thread highjacking, GoLa. Well, yes, buy the game. Even if this game cost 100€ it will still be worth it. You will probably spend at the very least 200 hours in the game, making each hour cost only 0,125€. Where else can you find fun that cheap?

Regarding price comparison:
Right click the item and select "sell at trading post". This will immediately open the trading post sell list. Next, look at the prices offered:
-if the item is blanked out, there are no buyers at all
-if the item has a price, that's the best buy offer someone posted. Now, mouse over the item's icon, and the popup screen will list the vendor price. If the buy offer is higher than item value, (by enough to cover the TP tax, too, don't forget) you should sell on TP

As for GoLolaGo... I expect a spambot here, actually... Also, the low price feels a bit fishy.

Please don't hijack threads with your questions, GoLolaGo. You can make your own thread by clicking the Start New Topic-button in the Q&A forum. I haven't the tools to seperate the responses to both questions, so I won't be moving the question out of this thread.
