    Would be a nice feature.

    Bronze would get 7% discount,
    Silver 15%
    Gold 25%
    Plat 40%

    Any input? Would at least encourage donations by a small amount. These numbers aren't the best but I tried right?

    Maybe 10%
    20%
    30%
    50%

    With 40% it is equivalent to the 50% but just a few tokens off. Plat is expensive so people will buy gold straight off instead of plat

    40% is ridiculous

    I think I still stand by to my original thought on this discount thing. I mean Platinum has the same benefits as Gold does, so it doesn't make a difference.

    Granted that Plat has very little more to offer over gold. But 40% is about a $1.3M cut off the entire store.

    Bronze -> 7% -> $230k
    Silver -> 15% -> $493k
    Gold -> 25% -> $822k
    Plat -> 40% -> $1.3M

    Granted it's not like staight up giving them that much straight up. But that's the overall cut you give them. 50 tokens for the rainbow fex doesn't seem right to me. When I said it's ridiculous I meant it's all ridiculous but 40% was specifically dumb.

    Bronze -> 5%
    Silver -> 10%
    Gold -> 15%
    Plat -> 25%

    That's what I'd like to see.

    Obviously it would be impossible to take say 5% off of anything below 11 tokens if we're rounding. However we could either just round down to the nearest token (Although anything worth 1 token will be worth 0) or we could just take these reductions as what a token costs. Eg. Bronze can purchase a token for $1900, up to plat getting them for $1500. (Don't worry it won't create an exploit with the "cash for tokens" purchases.
