    Ok, i opened a shop called Wear Me Clothes in ealand and technically its my first shop that sells normal greening, money and skill stuff (in addition to clothes) ... it is ridiculous that we have to reprice everything every couple of days as the price of stuff changes ..... i think there should be a tool or option that allows us to reprice all the items together. Lets say, if i have 10 jam tables for sale ... i will need to reprice only one of them and i will use the option/tool to reprice the rest.

    Thats not a bad idea, it would certainatly allow quicker turn arounds in game and allow you to play more.

    Or better yet if there was some kind of utility that you could set your price based on a percentage of whatever the current retail price is, and your objects would automatically reprice based on the catalog fluctuation....with fluctuations happening almost every day it seems it would be hard to keep repricing stuff, even if you could reprice multiples at a time manually.

    Maybe as an extra perk for EA, they could offer this service as one of the 'extra' things players could pay extra for that I've started thinking about.....like an extra $1 a month gets you extra this or extra that. That would give more ease to players who are willing to put forth more RL money to support EA, and give incentive to other players who otherwise wouldn't be inclined to give EA that support. More money in EA's hands is the only way this game is gonna be saved for the long term, so I think an incentive program like this would be excellent!

    Thats one of the better ideas I've heard on these forums. It makes a lot of sense.

    I agree too. There should be a choice of pricing several items at the same time.
    They would need to be priced with "the store's discounted price" * 1.10% for instance, if you want to charge your own cost + 10%.

    There would need to be:

    1) Price only this item
    2) Price all items of this type (for instance all jam tables)
    3) Price all items in this category (for instance all job items) since discounts differ depending on category

    And optionally
    4) Price all items on the lot

    Nothing wrong with your idea. The devs have discussed this feature.
