Offers to buy below merchant -- Can someone explain?

11 October 2012 - 12:45 PM

I'm pretty new to using the TP. I have noticed, however, that for many items I try to sell that there is a standing offer for some huge quantity of that item at a price below the price that you can set. For example, you might see an offer from one buyer to buy 100 Widgets at 1c each. However, the merchant price for Widgets is 15c and there is a 1c listing fee.

What's going on here? The only thing I can see is that it prevents one from easily finding out what the buyers out there are actually willing to pay for Widgets. You can't sell your Widgets for 1c, but you can't see offers from buyers that you can actually sell to at their price. Who benefits from that?
