    If you are referring to the daily vendor fee charged to have a vendor, then NO as a Vet reward.

    Uhm.. these already exist. Or rather, did exist. They were sold for cash some years back in at least two varieties (discount % and/or number of days (charges) good for) I still have an exhausted pair somewhere.

    The pair in game that already exist are called Merchants Earrings and they are a charged pair of earrings that discounts player run vendor costs per day. Deducts one charge per day, there are two versions: The 40 use version grants a 10% discount and the 90 use version grants a 5% discount.

    That's them! I couldn't remember their name, nor find any info on them (which is odd). They should be added to the in game store.

    Only if they come one max per account with a cap of 100 million total gold in prices then they stop working. Any price over 100 million on a vendor quadruples the vendor fee instead. :D

    Never really bothered using those 5-10% is like nothing... Only 50% starts making sense imop & very fair to have it as a vet reward

    Maybe they could just give us a 19 year vet reward of a vendor with zero charges. Maybe a second vendor for 8 year vet rewards that deduct 50% off the vendor fees.

    after playing for 19 years and all those vendor fees a 19 year old vet has paid, its maybe time to give the old players a fee free vendor. Just a thought.

    I'm not at all interested in paying even more $$ to BS for reduced fees ingame. Nor in wasting a vet pick on it. Just let everything under 500k or so be fee free.

    Nah, more like a lower percentage for low populated shards. This is a good gold sink, we actually need more of these in game ;)

    What are you buying in bulk that is soo expensive to need a 50% Discount??
    I agree on making vendor fees free for anything under 500k or even 1m, Although I dont use vendors, so not the best advise here

    I do have 1 vendor on Atlantic and I pretty much sell everything on him, never really understood people with multiple vendors with billions worth of items... all your doing is paying millions worth of vendors fees daily for nothing. I'd rather add one big item that sells slow with a bunch of smaller items that sell fast, this way it's not eating up your vendor fees and you just re-adjust as time goes by. Everything you sell on a vendor should cost something but I feel that lower populated shards should get a break, most things that sell on Atlantic within a few days can take weeks and even months to sell on most other shards

    no way I ever sell on a vender unless I have a buyer right then. then I put up a vender for a few days to sell that item.
    vender fees are brutal unless you sell a lot from your vender.
    what is the cutoff day count for anything to cost in vender fees? 45 days?
    if any item sits on your vender 45 days you just lost money on it.
