marketplace Does pre-ordering on the marketplace work?

As the title says, does pre-ordering on the marketplace work?

Does it work when you're logged off?

Been trying to buy something that has a price of 2.5m (shown price), I pre-orded at 3.0m, 3.5m, 4.0m and no luck...

Does it work? Or is someone bidding over 4.0m on it?

Yes and yes.

I got a crystal I pre-ordered the other day.

The other things I've pre-ordered, I'm probably not putting in enough.

Kind of what I feared...

So, in essence, there's no way of knowing the true value on some higher-end items.

What you can do is this:

If something is bought and goes to someone who pre-ordered, if you have a notification, you will see the name of the player.

Send them a whisper and ask if they won't mind telling you how much their pre-order was.

100% trolling lol cus i do that. If its something I'll only buy once then sure ill tell you. But if its something I'm always buying hell will freeze over before I tell anyone what I'm paying.

In BDO, all items registered goes thru 2 phases, 1) Pre-order phase (25% maybe higher) and 2) Skips the Pre-order phase.  It's intended so the rich ppl cant hog all the nice items.  You can see for yourself by pre-ordering a "hot" item such as "milk".  Most of the time it skips the pre-order phase.
