I don't know how else to explain it. ; ;
I guess everyone will have to experience the impact of the search function themselves it unless someone is able to understand what I am trying to explain and is willing and able to explain it clearer then I am able to.
I only know that players are going to be able to spend gil faster then they will be able to make it, and that nothing is really going to change other then now players will have to wait the same amount of time to make gil that they used to have to wait to be able to spend it.
Sorry if I upset anyone, that was not my intention, I was only trying to explain what I understand.

I get what your saying, i just dont agree, if someone is selling something, clearly they want buyers, if your retainer cannot be found amongst all the others, you will not make a sale full stop.
When people are buying, they usually have a reasonable idea of what they want and if you are selling what they want, the search function will enable the buyer to see that you are selling that item, therefore they will come to you.
If someone is wanting a particular item, and you are selling that item, unless they want to be picky over a few hundred gil or whatever then they will look for cheaper, however if they believe your price is reasonable for what they want, they will have no need to look at the other sellers.
People tend to know what they want, if they know you have it they will buy, if they get frustrated by not finding you after hours of searching they will go elsewhere, if they have a direct, streamline way of finding you because you have got the item they want, (aslong as you are not grossly overcharging), they will buy. a search function enables this and is truly beneficial to all.
Buyers find what they want quicker.
Sellers get their goods viewed quicker
