Hey Chris, I'm one of the co-founders of ShareGrid. We always strive to keep our marketplace free. What the article is touching on is to give the vendors who are outliers in pricing the OPTION to stay competitive as well as to keep the marketplace healthy so it's not a complete race to the bottom. Ideally, we'll never have to jump in. It's just a user-requested step of customer service we've added.
