What is a consignment house? It is, in essence, a reverse Auction House.
In a normal AH, a person puts up an item for sale, and the first person who comes along can buy it, putting money up for the purchase, that, or an actual bidding process is done and the high bidder wins.
A consignment house would work in the exact opposite direction. Players would go to an CH and place up a request for a need, along with the price they are willing to pay for it. Then they deposite the money into the CH. Then the first AH who can put up the required good can claim the money, and the item is delivered.
Such an Item can also be used to set up a perpetual buy order. Crafters who have never ending needs for crystals can put up a perpetual buy order for crystals, along with a price per crystal, and then put up a sum of money for purchasing. So long as that money remains available, that order will stay up.
It is not necessary to tie a name to the Consignment order, but it would be a possible thing to do.
What do you think?
So long, and thanks for all the fish!
