    $1.25 RMAH item fee replaced with a 15% fee

    Hey People

    You might of noticed in the RMAH in beta the fee is being displayed as 15% for a item, and a 15% fee does come of the item when sold "I tested it".

    Looks like blizzard whats a bigger cut of the sales "on items that sell for a decent amount"
    It makes sense from them to do it this way as a % fee on the sale of a $100 item gives them far more profit than a flat fee.

    There is no official word on this yet, but perhaps it will carry over to release.

    What do you think ?

    Hopefully. The flat fee would have killed the RMAH for low value trading which would be silly, imo.

    This is good news, I wounder if they will scrap the minimum listing price if they are going with the 15 % fee now.

    Listing commodities and gold is 15%. It has always been like this. When you tested it, did you try to sell equipment, or a commodity?

    Unless equipment is now also reading 15%? Can someone check this, I'm at work.

    Nevermind, confirmed to be right!

    Trying to check this, but servers are down due to the "hotfix" they applied earlier.

    i think 15% is too much for high value sales, it is fine to charge 15% up 30$ and then decrease the fee the higher the value gets, but thats just my opinion.

    if they keep 15% fee, independant of sellvalue, and paypal charges another 15% for chashout i wouldn't be surprised if the best and most expensive items are sold via 3rd party sites.

    Haha, now nobody will sell end game items via the rmah, 1 month from release i see this and many other d3 forums flooded with weapon drop threads, offering email for contact and price of the items...
