I know this might not be something doable or easily doable for the devs but thought I’d toss the idea of a Master Merchant Control item out, as I was thinking of several uses for it that might be both convenient and stimulate the economy a bit.
The first purpose it would serve is a master list of items where you can save prices that - if enabled - would apply to all of your plinths in the universe. In my case, I sometimes swap items around, and in those cases or when I run out and restock, I’ve had to have a few people give me a heads-up that I forgot to set a price when I put goods out. Also, though this doesn’t apply to me yet, I know there are people with multiple shops scattered around. Might just make it simpler to set a price in one place that would be saved until you change it.
The second thing I thought would be neat would be - now that we have a trading channel - if something like this could let you set a blanket discount to your items and even put a timer on it. So, if you wanted to get some business and have a flash sale, you could shout out that “There is a 30% sale at X on Y for the next hour!”
Related to the above, it could also let you set a discount for friends and guild members. I was thinking how I definitely wouldn’t mind selling stuff to my neighbors even cheaper than I list already, but I also am not too social so I don’t really check in with them too much I admit. It would be neat to just give them a 50% discount or so at my store, though.
Anyways, thanks for reading my rambling!
