Retainer Buying Items using BazaarFollow

I know there is another thread regarding confusion in whether the "I'm buying" price is for each unit of for the stack. Can someone please clarify for my how I can setup my bazaar to purchase items (bat fang in my case) correctly?

I had 1 bat fang so I setup my bazaar at an offer price of x gil. It would only give me the option to set it up for "1" unit. I couldn't see anywhere where I could specify the number of units I wished to buy. Someone sold me a fang so now I have 2. I then setup the bazaar to buy 2 units at an offer of x gil. Does this mean that I am now offering x gil for a stack of 2 (not x gil for each)?

How do I specify how many units I want to purchase? I would like to purchase at least 40 bat fangs but can't figure out how to set this up when I only have 2 in my current inventory. Do I need to build this up in binary progression to get the number I actually need? IE, offer to buy 1, then 2, then 4, etc.

The way this interface seems to work is that you cannot offer to buy what you need unless you already have it.

The system is set up so that you can't try to buy more than you have on hand. That's why you see all kinds of random values when people are set up to try and buy shards. They're frequently listing to buy the maximum allowed based on their current supply.

The retainers can only be setup to handle a single transaction. You can setup the transaction to buy 1 bat fang, buy 2 bat fangs, ect, and once that transaction is completed it is removed from your retainer.

So, if you setup your retainer to buy Bat Fang x 2 for 600 gil, the seller has to have 2 bat fangs to sell you. If they have 1 bat fang, they can't sell you just 1, because your transaction is setup to buy 2.

Its a poorly implemented system.

So, the 40+ bat fangs I need will need to be requested 1 step at a time. 1, 2, 4, 8 ... AND I'll need to keep fangs in reserve if I want to buy another batch in the future (for arrows btw).

I'm just lucky I had 1 to seed this BS with.

Also, offering to buy something actually takes 2 slots from your bazaar, 1 for the gil on offer and 1 for the item. Presumably this can take more than 2 slots if you are offering items for trade instead of gil. If I want people to sell me 1 fang (if that's all they got) I need to split my 2 into two separate offers to buy 1 (now taking 4 slots).

LOL. What a system. Completely useless.
