It is the items you buy for opening ZZ.. and I think also if you buy items when you craft something.

You can also buy an item for a friend if they have something on their wish list, but you don't have in your inventory.

das100, as mentioned above, it's when you buy something to complete a ZZ or craft something - but only if you lack it. The fastest and cheapest way to accumulate purchases is to craft simple food, if you lack pet medallions. That way you purchase five items at a time at the cost of one diamond each. And by the way, don't feel silly asking questions. I would guess that almost everyone in this forum has asked a question or two or three or........

It should count, but only if you use diamonds.

I'll try and confirm that. There is a friend that has an item on their wish list that I know is only 1 diamond. Unfortunately, it will have to wait until this afternoon before I can try it. I already gifted my 5 this morning then will be out of the house for a while today.

Confirmed...

If you purchase a gift to send to a friend it will count toward Market Master ONLY if you spend diamonds.

It will not count if you buy a gift with coins.

Oh, this is good news. I do the puzzles 3x a day most days so my diamonds accumulate in both games and I've been more generous about gifting diamond only gifts since I've had diamonds to spare. Achieved this long ago on my level 78 PC game but I have a new Android game and have been spending diamonds on friends. Nice to know my generosity is being rewarded. I never thought to check.

(I also craft simple food whenever the DQ's ask for it and buy the medallions when they run out.)

Page 2 of the NEW Strategy Guide (under Achievements) has been updated to include the following paragraph:

Market Master -- Purchasing items to enter ZZ, and items from HOSs count toward this achievement. (Bringing back the Airship, opening the Dice Table early, winnings from the Fortune Wheel, entering HOS before cooldown, and items purchased for friends wish lists with coins do not count toward this achievement.) However, items purchased on friends' wish list with diamonds WILL count toward the achievement.

Whenever I have to craft for a DQ, I craft pet food or a pet (been saving the eggs I get until sent to craft). That uses them up pretty quick so I just buy them when I run out. As they're only one diamond each and the achievement is number of items, not diamonds spent, it's a cheap way to make the achievement.
