Does this game need a Confirm Spending button?

I'm sick of missing this option. How about you? Every major phone game I've played had a confirmation button when spending a monetized resource. Here's my idea.

Create a popup which asks for confirmation before spending a specific resource. Each resource can have it's own confirmation popup (gold, trade goods, items etc). Have a slider button for On and Off in the game options for each of these confirmation popups. Here's how that would play out.

-An end game player with tons of gold who buys packages as quickly as spending the gold probably won't care to keep the gold confirmation spending button toggled on. That player doesn't have to and so there is no inconvenience.

-A mid game player with minimal spending who saves gold can keep the confirmation gold spending button on. But they can keep the confirmation spending button for trade goods toggled off. That player is now in a much stronger guild and gets lots of trade goods to spend and does lots of daily buying with that. Now that player is very happy.

-A new player doesn't accidently spend gold, accidentally sell items etc. NOW NG KEEPS THAT NEW PLAYER instead of them getting pissed off and leaving!!!

-Any long term player at any level who hoards items to sell for double xp time can keep the Sell Item confirmation button toggled On, until it comes time to sell hundreds or even thousands of items, and then toggle it the button Off when it comes time to get down and busy liquidating their entire department store worth of items. That player is super happy.

Biggest benefit is this.

-Support team no longer gets dozens (or hundreds, or more?) of tickets daily about accidental spending. Save them TIME! Save the players the headache. Make this game better! 

Literally everyone wins if this is implemented correctly. And that the community hasn't successfully advocated for this and the developers haven't implemented this in over 5 years is astonishing to me.

5 out of my 6 tickets have had to do with accidental spending.

    I’m sure that it would save support time as they normally refund one ooops

    I made that mistake last night.  I mistakenly bought a Deadly Spike from the Gabriel Black Market.  What I wanted to do was look at the traits and somehow I ended up buying the thing.  Considering that I already have one that I never use I was not happy, but support was quick to refund the purpose.  Still today, I don't know what button I pressed that caused it to be bought because it happened so suddenly and was not what I was expecting.  Would have saved a lot of trouble if I could answered a confirmation message negatively and avoided the whole thing.

    Let's see if we can get 50 or 100 votes before the weekend. Then @Fluxxx will take this seriously. Please tell your guild mates who have forum accounts.

    I agree. Last night I was trying to move through the Guild Shop I bought some Gabriel tokens when my screen lagged for a sec. It wasn't a big purchase but wasn't what I wanted to be a priority.

    Haven't made that mistake in a while but it would be nice to not have to Tiptoe Through the Tulips when I'm shopping

    I was checking out the Flaming Crossbow Pistol to check out the traits and functionality and then... BOOM... One wrong finger tap and now I own it. I have contacted Support for a refund, but I am thinking of keeping it. What do others think of that weapon? Is it worth 1000 Gold?

    Every spendings, buying button must have a confirming option, preferably a slide button.

    but text might be Slide to confirm !

    Have yet to mistakenly buy from the BM but my partner has. (Support refunded it which was fine but a faff). I have however spent a lot of gold by accident earlier on in the game when trying to buy gold crates/hero tokens for TG when I was out of TG. You tap through so quickly usually it’s very easy to do.

    I've mentioned on some channels before but not on the forum it seems, my apologies.
    We have been aware of this since the early weeks of this update and agreed that it does need a confirmation, but it requires an update so we will be adding the confirmation popup in the Black Market in the next update :) 
    That is wonderful news. TY for sharing!

    Unfortunately, we're going to need confirmation popups for more than just black market. Take crafting for example.

    The Reroll feature (2nd version) has been implemented in such a way as to truly help players. I am VERY excited about rerolling 2 max health badges to fit a 3rd and create a max health Eugene. This is how I catch up to the players at the top. I need tools like this in my tool box. However, the execution of the reroll feature (no warning button, location of reroll button encourages accidental misuse when crafting and experiencing lag or excessively tapping) takes away carefully saved reroll tokens. This is amazingly frustrating and is solved completely when implementing a Confirm Reroll button.

    I know what I'm talking about when it comes to crafting from a community stand point. You might say I have my finger on the pulse. Because of my endless willingness to help other players, they named the Crafting Badges chat after me in my guild family.

    That is the actual most recent message I haven't yet read when I went to take the screenshot for this. 

    This what players want. Players want a system that is more user friendly. That begins by saving both us and support from misclicks.

    I suggest the following flow:

    1. "Are you sure you want to purchase it?"
    2. "You already spent so much! Are you Really sure?"
    3. "Receipt has been emailed to your wife"
