I think the time has come to remove vendor fee's. They worked as a gold sink while the game was lush with many many shops ect... but now they are just a reason why many don't even have a shop on their plot. The big money items are sold via chat then dropped on the vendor for only a short time so as not to incur the vendor charge... Many just use Vendors as a place to store their Bods as they take up far to much plot lockdowns otherwise. The vendor fee is just hurting the game now. On Europa now there are only a few well stocked vendor shops for everyday items and they are talking about closing down as they spend more in vendor fee's than they actually make due to the low value of consumables. Something needs to be done soon or we are going to turn into a game where you have to make "everything" yourself. Look on real life for an example, First the shops go then the people go.
