Merchantbags is a small addon that simply opens all of your equipped bags when you start trading with a merchant, use the mailbox, use the bank, trade with another player, or use the auction house. It will even (optionally) automatically closes your bags again when you are done.
Merchantbags can be easily enabled and disabled on a per character basis, and will remember the last setting until you change it again. Try it for a while and you'll never want to go back to the old way!
Merchantbags slash commands
Merchantbags supports the following slash commands:
/merchantbags help shows these options. /merchantbags on enables Merchantbags for your current character (the default until you change it). /merchantbags off disables Merchantbags for your current character. /merchantbags openonly tells Merchantbags to only open your bags, but not to close them again itself. /merchantbags openclose tells Merchantbags to both open and then close your bags (this is the default). /merchantbags status shows you Merchantbags status.
