Hey I'm a bit confused, i noticed the access item you get from the cartel coin store to gain access to section x has a count down on it. It says "bound to accound x days xx hours xx minutes" do you have to re-purchase the item if you let it run out?
You bought an actual Item that is using up space in your Inventory.
So, to really unlock the section X you have to rightclick on that item in the inventory, which consumes it and unlocks that area for you.
That item is bound to your character/account for the specified amount of time. After that, the item unbinds from your character/account and you can choose to give it to other characters or even other players/friends.
But it will stay in your inventory until you consume it or give it away, and the unlock will last forever.
