A vendor is a unique NPC that can be placed by Traders who are level 7+. Vendors function similar to a Bazaar Terminal in that players can come up and pick through the goods and then buy what they want. However, with Vendors there is no auctioning and the price limit is much higher than 10,000,000 credits. Vendors require a maintenance fee to stay where they are placed.

Traders gain the ability to place more vendors with higher stock capacity and of different types as they advance in skill. They also gain access to advanced vendor features.

Vendor FeaturesEdit

As you gain additional vendor-related skills, you will gain access to new features on the Vendor Control radial menu.

Register VendorEdit

(available at ?
After picking a category, this will add your vendor to the main Vendor List in the Planetary Map. This will also enable your vendor to be visible on the Radar Map.

Ad BarkingEdit

(available at ?
Enables your vendor to "bark" at customers when they get near it. You can select from a wide array of messages it to say.

You can customize this message once you obtain ? (you can colorize the message using \#xxxxxx notation: \#FF0000 for red, \#FFFF00 for yellow, etc.).

Customize UniformEdit

(available at lvl 82)
Allows you to drag clothing from your inventory to your vendor and he/she will wear that piece from now on. NOTE: You will not be able to get the item back, and standard race-specific clothing restrictions still apply (no boots on a Trandoshan, for example). {Bug} it appears ithorians can't wear looted ithorian equipment. (armor, jackets, pants, shirt etc.)

Vendor UseEdit

You can buy items from a vendor and offer items to the vendor for sale. As a user of a vendor, you will find the following options on its radial menu:

  • Use Vendor gives you access to the Vendor List window.
  • Examine brings up an Examine window, which provides no useful information.

Vendor List Window Edit

The Vendor List Window allows buy merchandise from the vendor and offer items for sale to it. It has three tabs: For Sale, Offers to Vendor, and Available Items.

For Sale

The For Sale tab shows a list of all the items for sale. The Object Type Filter on the left lets you focus on a specific type of merchandise. Once you have selected an item, you can use the Details button (or double click) to see the information about the item and the Buy button to perchase it.

Offers to Vendor

The Offers to Vendor window allows you to offer items for the vendor's master to buy; these will be stored in the vendor until they are accepted or rejected (they are automatically rejected after 30 days). You use the Offer Item button to bring up a window that lets you choose an item from your inventory, set it's price and description, and sell the item to the vendor (Sell Item button).
To withdraw an offer you must display the Item Details window for the item and press the Withdraw Item button at the bottom (you should be able to use the Retrieve Item button to cancel an offer, but it seems to be disabled). The withdrawn item is placed in the Available Items window for pick-up.

Available Items

The Available Items window allows you to pick up items of yours that are stored in the vendor. These may be rejected or withdrawn offers or items that you purchased when there was no room in your inventory.

Vendor ManagementEdit

Creating a vendorEdit

When you are able to place a vendor, you get the Create Vendor on the Structure Management menu of the structure management terminal of any public building that you can administer. When you choose the option, you are prompted for the type and sub-type of vendor (e.g., Terminal, Bulky) and then the name of the vendor.
(You may also use /CreateVendor to open the same window, in any part of your structure)

Once you have the vendor in your inventory, you can drop it in place in the building (using the Drop option on its radial menu. To move it before it has been initialized, you need to pick it up and place it in the new spot.

  • Pick Up puts the vendor back into your inventory. This allows you move the vendor to a new location before it has been initialized.
  • Move should allow you to move the vendor to a new location; however it is disabled.
  • Rotate allows you to rotate the vendor in 90 degree increments either left or right. The /rotate left <degrees> and /rotate right <degrees> commands can be used to fine tune the rotation.
