Bazaar: Diff between Set and Unit price?Follow

So I would assume "Set Price" allows you to sell all the items at once and "Unit Price" would allow you to sell each item in the stack seperately. But if this is true, then why do both options have a price per unit box? So I have a feeling I might be wrong. What exactly is the difference?

You have the right idea: Set price means "buy them all or nothing" and Unit price is "Buy as many as you want"

The reason they ask you for unit price in either case, is so you don't have to do the math yourself, and just have to put in the price of an individual piece until the total suits you. If you want to give a full stack purchase a 10% discout, just take 10% off the individual price and the math is done for you.

The only difference, as you said, is if you want to sell the whole stack, or if you want people to pick their desired amount individually.

In both cases you set the price per unit, yes. But I would say that most people, while comparing item prices, check the price of a single item. Basically the game does the math for you if you want to sell a stack instead of single items.

EDIT: Uguu...

I was trying that but when I changed the total it would change the unit, then again I was most likely doing it wrong?

Umm...what? Of course the price of a stack changes if the unit price is changed. Same logic when you do it the other way around. So eh...?

You can edit the total value? Well then it's just a matter of which one you want to use. Long as you're happy with the total, all's good.
