Company will function like mini AH and will have search enabled capability. To register as a company however, the LS has to commit and maintain at least X type of products to be sold. As the number of transaction grows (taxable), the companies in each city will be ranked. The ranking formula may factor in:
1. coverage of products from each DOH/DOL.
2. PLayers optimum Level of the products
3. Volume of monthly transactions
To be successful, a company will need to consistently prove that they have the widest coverage of products at the best prices. Players are free to join more than one company, they will pay city tax and company tax to consign their products to be sold in the Company AH.
There may be one single company with a few afflilate Linkshell supporting the companies.
Companies will start off with Y number of selling slots and the selling slots will expanded after milestones have been met (e.g. average weekly transaction size of 5 million gils etc).
