    Why does the game not have a direct trading for SILVER <-> PEARL ?

    Why based it on supply and demand of an item if pearl item whatever it is will always be in demand, be it pet, outfit, etc ?

    Why bother with what pearl item is put on the market, let it be just PEARLS and give it a starting exchange rate and let the market adjust after that.

    Because if one pet is in high demand for example a Wolf then the silver rate for wolf will be higher and cashshoper won't list any other item than wolf and people will rush po ing wolf. In the end all those items bought with pearls are just pearls, so let pearls be listed in the market and let ppl buy whatever they want themself

    Because this game has a controlled economy.

    But everything from the cashshop is bought using PEARLS.

    Pet = x amount of pearls
    Outfit = y amount of pearls
    Costume = z amount of pearls
    In the end, they're all pearls.

    And when checking market prices, each item has their own pearl:silver rate just like foreign currency for example, It's like I want to buy Euro using Dollar, but I have to buy an item first like a computer for example and sell it in Euro while actually can just use Dollar-Euro exchange rate.

    It doesn't seem to work, the demand for pearl items are always high, but noone would sell and will only sell item with highest rate.

    Hello @Guybrush_Threepwood!

    Welcome to Black Desert Online! BDO does indeed have a unique marketplace system but we are always open to feedback and suggestions from our players! If there is something you would like to see changed I recommend checking out our dedicated Suggestion Forum.

    We make efforts to take everyone's ideas into consideration, but naturally, the most popular ideas are given the most attention, at the top of this section, you will be able to find the stickied topic "BDO NA/EU Feedback Library" which is a community-driven collection of suggestions and ideas which many players have shown interest in.

    Please note, as we have already announced here a new Marketplace system is something the developers (Pearl Abyss) are already working on!

    < New Marketplace >

    The new marketplace is available on Black Desert Online Global Lab and is currently under development.

    The advantage of the new marketplace is that there is no waiting time for sales and it is not a bidding system.

    Here is how the new system will work. It will show the ups and downs in the price of the items, which will prevent abusive transaction activities. The existing bidding method that depended on probability will be replaced by the new method that will depend on the time an order was made. This will solve many problems with the current Marketplace system. It will also be a place to store your goods from all your storages.

    The new marketplace system will be accessible on the web or smartphone regardless of your location.
    The current upper and lower limit prices have been held excessively conservatively, so sellers were in an unfavorable position. However, with the new market economy, the general transaction activities will become less restricted.
    The new Marketplace is a mass-scaled content which even requires additional servers.
    As a result, we expect some time difference among serviced regions for its launch.

    With the help of our Community Managers, we ensure your feedback is passed on to our developers to be considered!
