Just to warn anyone thinking of buying anything anytime soon from the NEX store, id wait if i where you, i "STUPIDLY" bought a few items from the store,only to see that a couple of days later, the price dropped!

Woman's "Sterling"Dress Blouse (Platinum) Oringinaly priced at 3.600 AUR....now 2.900 AUR
Woman's "Impress" Skirt (Gray) Oringinaly priced at 3.600AUR...now 3.500 AUR

not a "HUGE" price change, but money is money,

I then Petitioned this and asked what was going on and would we recieve a refund for this only to be told that prices are subject to change whenever they feel its right to do so, so be warned shoppers, buy an item at 3.500 AUR (20) and a day later they can cut the price to whatever they like, thus you being the loser in the situation.

Its pretty safe to say that im done with the NEX store lol, i wont be buying anything else from here on out, talk about biting the hand that feeds you CCP!

You bought pointless MT crap and now you're butt hurt you paid too much pretend money for it?

Also you do realise shops can discount stuff and customers don't get to come back and ask for a refund rite?

if you have enough RL cash or ingame isk to convert to plex to convert ao aur to buy a skirt in a game that does nothing, then you have enough to swallow the loss.

Also, this happens in RL stores ALL the time.

So if you go to a store, let's say a electronics store and buy a TV and the next day the store lower the price of said TV by 50%, are you entitled to a refund just because you bought the TV at the wrong time ?
No, you are not.
Prices are subject to change in almost every store or method of commerce. Even in-game stores this is common as games got various sales and discount on items.
So it's a prime example of tough luck.

Actually, many stores that I shop at offer a price guarantee for anywhere between two weeks to a month. If I purchase a product and then see that product go on sale within the price guarantee period, I can return to the store for the difference.

It's not an uncommon practice to retain customer loyalty.

was about to call bull**** but just checked my old screenshot of monocle days and it's true prices have changed.

items who cost a bit more than a plex got cut to be less or egal to one.
it's a marketing change as lots of people talked about the need to buy 2 plex cause of this.

but won't change much things... monocle is still 12 000 and will never change.
only changes are for items who costed like 3600-3900 AUR -> they are now at 3500 max.
the dress at 4400 is still at 4400.

given what they have changed, i would say they will never do it again. it's only a small pricing correction for "medium priced" items

Ohhh dude never say never LOL! as they said, prices are subject to change and i dont see why Monocles should be exempt from that!

And i also dont get how they can justify charhing 4.400AUR for Woman's "Sterling"Dress Blouse (NAVY) when they released the (Platinum) version for 3.600AUR, does navy fabric cost more to produce in eve when the clothing design is exactly the same as the platinum version? lol, CON!!!!!

Here, I'm going to offer you a pixel for $70 dollars. Absurd, I know. But, some stupid f**k is willing to spend that much for virtual stuff amounting to nothing.

Wait! Now I'm going to "discount" it. *chuckle* It only costs $60 this week. So, it's got to be a really good deal now! LMFAO!

PT Barnum was right. A sucker is born every minute. And now you know why some of us rage over this kind of stupidity. Because your participation damns us all. Since people are participating in and perpetuating such an idiocracy the only means for those of us smart enough to not support it is to leave the game we've loved and enjoyed.

i remember it was common on old games i played that items was at different price depending on the color, as they were using color as different models of items for differents stats.

it was also obvious here it would happen the second i saw the 5 colors on singularity.
the only question is to know if the next colors will be cheaper or more expensive ?
i agree it's silly however :p

what is the more ridiculous is that from the picture on nex blog we see they do have already created clothes for different qualities : we saw clearly a poor - medium - rich on most of the clothes on the picture (on singularity we have medium quality clothes from this image), meaning they don't need to cheat about recoloring.

Any company which does not do price matching, you can just return the product for a refund and then just buy it again for the reduced price :P

It's what I advise customers all the time.

Conversely, if you buy an item and the price later rises, is the merchant entitled to more money?
