    I've notice that some player vendors say they accept buy orders. How do I place a buy order? I don't see an option like that in the buy window.

    Thanks!

    It sounds as though you mean other players' vendors? That is not possible. But maybe I misunderstand what you mean. If it's your vendor, then in addition to the Buy and Sell tabs, there should be a "Manage Inventory" tab for selling and a "Manage Orders" tab for setting up buy orders.

    Yes, other player's vendors. Sorry I wasn't more specific. I went back to the vendor in question - the text floating above the vendor says "BUY ORDERS SELL TAPESTRY RARES", so I was reading that as "buy orders", like you could request a specific item(s) to the player who owns the vendor. Sounds like I am misinterpreting?

    Thanks!

    I just saw another vendor with text like this, this one more clear.

    The vendor text (above their head) says "RARES AND BUY ORDER"?

    What is meant by "buy orders" in this context?

    Thanks!

    It means that vendor is asking to buy certain items. Click the SELL tab, and see if you have anything they are wanting to buy from you.

    You can’t place buy orders on a player owned vendor.

    This is related to the four tabs at the top of the vendor window.

    Buy - this is where you buy items that other people have put up for sale
    Sell - this where you sell items that other people have put up buy orders for
    Manage Inventory - this is where you list items for sale. currently if the vendor charges a fee, it is collected at listing time
    Manage Orders - this is where you list items you want to buy. the vendor takes the money for both the sale and the fee at listing time, but will refund the sale money if you remove the listing or it expires with no sale
