What is the NearPin bonus?

  1. It seems like sometimes when selling stuff, I get what looks like a blue NearPin bonus... and I have no idea what it means. Anybody got a clue regarding it?

  1. There are two different bonuses you can get when selling/buying items, the Pin bonus and the Just bonus. The Just bonus comes from selling or buying on your first offer, without haggling. It starts at a mere +2xp, but doubles with every Just bonus you get in the same store session, with a maximum possible Just bonus of +128xp for a chain of 7 satisfied customers. The Pin bonuses come from selling/buying at near the price your customer thinks the item is actually worth, a much harder target than just the acceptable range. The Near Pin bonus from coming close to the right value displays as 15xp, but since it actually changes your base reward from the default 10xp to 15xp, it's really only 5 extra points you're getting. Similarly, the Pin bonus from exactly hitting the right amount displays as 30xp and really only counts as an extra 20 points over the default sale xp. Pin bonuses stack with Just bonuses, but do not increase in value when chained.

  1. It means that the price you and the customer settled on was close to what exactly the customer wanted to/was willing to pay.

  2. A NearPin bonus is the general range of price the customer wishes to buy/sell at. It's worth noting the more NearPins you get on a specific customer will increase your store's popularity. When you see a heart above the customer from a NearPin, that means they will be able to purchase more expensive things.

  3. "Near Pin" means you were pretty close to what the customer thinks the item is actually worth. If you get even closer than that, possibly even EXACTLY correct, you'll earn the "Just Bonus", which is worth 30 XP.
