Technically their advantage comes from linking to the real world economy which enables price inflation within the game as by enabling in game money purchase with out of game resources you increase the pool of people in-game able to pay the exorbitant prices.

If one could prevent credit sales the economy would not inflate much beyond the reasonable means of an average player to purchase, It's only by those players leveraging real world economics that the inflation can be succesful.
