Cartel Market Question, before I buy...

I may be interested in the Unlock: Additional Cargo Bay (Account), but I have a question with multiple sub-questions.

Do character level limits apply for this purchase? For example, my level 35 character already has a 2nd cargo bay. If I purchase this from the cartel market will I immediately get the 3rd bay on that character? Or will it automatically appear once I turn 40 (which is the level requirement for the third bay)? Or, since I am already at the cap for that level, does that character not get an extra bay as part of the purchase?

Now that I think of it, I have the same question for the account unlock for expanding character inventory by one row.

I've double checked with our Cartel Market developers, and they confirmed that using an unlock for an additional Cargo Bay or inventory row for an account will apply to all existing and new characters for the account, regardless of level. The only exception to this is if a character already has the maximum number of whatever it is that you're unlocking. Cheers, and happy playing!

I have an additional question in relation to the additional cargo bay or inventory unlocks for account wide purchase:

Under normal play the cost of these bays escalate the more bays you buy - 1st one free, 2nd 40,000 credits, 3rd 400,000 credits etc. Am I best getting all my characters to have say 2 bays before I buy the account wide extra bay and save myself 400,000 x no. of characters or will the pricing for my next credit purchase remain unaffected by the cartel purchase?

Thank you to anyone who can answer this for me.

When you buy the cartel unlock (character or account) it unlocks the NEXT tier (inventory or cargo bay).

Credit prices are fixed.
That means that Bay 3 or Row 6 will always cost same regardless of whether or not you bought the one before it with coins.

So, yes, ultimately it is probably cheaper to buy the early ones with credits and the later ones with coins.
