A Buying Store (also known as a Purchase Shop) is a player-generated "store" where players can input items they would like to buy, with a specific amount of Zeny willing to be paid. A maximum of 5 items at a time can be advertised in a shop (2 items for non-merchants). Players must have one of item they are seeking to purchase already in their inventory.
