need simple trading profit formula

I have created an automated bot that trades online digital items. So let's say my bot has an item that is valued at \$10 and someone sends it a trade for two items that have a total value of \$12. The trade happens and I make a profit.

I would, however, like to minimize people trading many low price items for only a few high price items. For example, 100 items with a value of \$0.01 that total \$1 for a single item the bot has with a value of \$1.

I need a formula that I can take the total number of items they are trading compared to the total number of items they would like to receive and require a higher percentage of profits for trading many low-value items for one or more high-value items.
