    last week i decided to put up a pet merchant for the first time.
    i was sickened by what people where charging for back beetles and fire beetles and crappy Greater Dragons so thought id put a seller guy in New Magincia with a butt load of cheap ones.

    so bid on a stall and got it later that day.
    then went and tamed 10 beetles, 10 fire beetles and 5 Greaters.
    put them all on the merchant selling for dirt cheap.

    felt very accomplished.
    good deed for the week - check that off my list!

    logged in today and there was a message waiting for me on log in from my merchant!
    (wooooooo this is exciting, im getting messages from the hired staff!)

    i had lost my stall.... wha......
    look as though i had to set up my lease to be recurring or i loose my stall (which i thought i did)

    i sat back and thought.... how funny!
    both in game AND out of game UO has a nasty billing problems.
    hahahaha!
    what are the odds!
    i wonder if the merchants in new magincia sell Game Time Codes?

    Had the same thing happen to me the first time I tried a pet stall. Put more gold in the broker account when you get it set up again, raise your bid amount so it's more than the minimum, retrieve the pets and try it again!

    i had set it to 1000 gold a week and put 50k in him.
    so there was no shortage of funds from him to draw from.

    so im not sure where the problem happened at.
    guess ill go set him up again and try again.
