Caldera: Easy money
For easy money early in the game, go to the Mage's Guild in Caldera. Go into the tower and go up the stairs to an unguarded table. The table is filled with alchemist equipment that range in value from 100 to 4800 gold pieces. If alchemy is a major part of your class, you can use this to help you greatly. However, if you just want the money, the best place to sell it is the alchemist in Balmera next to the Fine Clothier. She is loaded with gold and if you have not made her mad, you can get a hefty pay check.
For some easy money, make sure you do not have Alchemy as one of your major or minor skills when you start the game. Start the game and immediately go about getting about 2000 to 3000 gold. Then, join the Mages Guild (you do not have to be a Mage). Go to the bottom floor and find the cat person who will train you in alchemy. Get enough training to identify the first characteristic of the raw ingredients. Then, use the Mages Guild guide to teleport to Caldera. On the bottom floor of the Mages Guild in Caldera is be a fruity sounding man standing in front of a door. Go through the door and up the stairs to find a full set of alchemy tools of Master quality. Take them and go talk to the man that was standing in front of the door. Using the "Info" button find out any two ingredients that will make any potion. Buy all he has, exit the conversation, then talk to him again. He will have more. Continue to do this until you overencumber yourself with the ingredients. Then, go about making all those potions. At first, most will fail but you will get better. Then, take you potions to the manor in town. Inside you will find a talking scamp that will buy most everything at face value. Sell all of your potions, then repeat. If the scamp runs out of money, just rest and his money will return. The more times you do it, the better you will get at making potions. The better you get at making potions, the more your potions will be worth and the more of them you will have. It is a cycle that you can use as many times you desired to get as much money as needed.
Start a character with the ability to summon an Ancestral Ghost and buy Soul Trap from the woman in the Mage's Guild (in the bottom in the back). Then, get some about 1000 to 3000 gp. Go to Tel Branora on the east side of the map in the islands. There is a woman in one of the first houses (a trader). Her name is Sylvan or something similar. You can buy common Soul Gems from her. Buy all the ones she has and say "Offer". Then, go back to barter and buy them again. They regenerate, and after the first time, she only has three but it stays there. After getting a good amount of them (save money for the trip home), go to Caldera. Go to the hotel next to Ghorak Manner. Stay there and summon a Ghost. Put Soul Trap on it, then kill it (Fire Bite recommended). You can rest in the bed -- do not pay; just go to the back room and do it there. When you filled the gems, you will see that each is now worth 4000 gp. Sell it to the Creeper next door in the upstairs at Ghorak Manor for face value. Do this once then rest for 24 hours because. This will regenerate his money as he only has 5,000 gp. When you sell them all, you can have up to 200,000 gp.
