Hey - this is a very reasonable request and we're going to look at this topic. Thanks for your feedback.

If votes count, I vote for the refund grace period. You buy an item, you have 1 hour in which you can return it for a full refund. If you equip it, the grace period ends.

My personal fave!

Ding 40!! woot lets go train my new skills.

Click...click..click.....

wait, I just spent 210k creds on mount skill #2...


*Solution* please put the riding skills on a riding trainer or something. Its not that big of a deal, i would have spent the creds anyway, but it was def a surprise when i couldn't afford my other level 40 skill because i suddenly had less the 1k creds.
I bring you pain, the kind you cant suffer quietly!

This please! I lost money clicking wrong when I wanted to preview but that isnt too bad.....but loosing commendations is very very bad. Due to lag (thus clicking twice accidently) I ended up with 2 of the same items from commendations

Shift+drag the item you want to buy into your inventory. It'll ask you to "split" the stack the vendor has. Choose how much you want and click OK and it'll purchase that many.

I hope this is a high priority. I consider it a bug, not a missing feature. I'm sure many others do too.

We have a buyback option at vendors. Why not have a sellback option for a limited time, like say 10 minutes or so?

This 1 just happend to me. Very annoying as I did not relize at the time that the first tier of badge gear in kass city had light and dark side restrictions! Yes I should have checked all the reqs but still would have been nice to replace it.

Not sure you can count on me to list this as a bug or high priority but yeah its nice if they would add a sell back thing at the same price, I spotted a lovely blue hat but its way out my price range (saving for my first speeder) it would be very painful to click it and loss half my savings.
