    "In the real-money auction house, the minimum you can list an item for is $1.25 USD (or equivalent local currency). The maximum you can set is $250 USD."

    Holy double dipping Batman...

    1stly, this now officially make gold the strongest currency in game, because Gold can be broken up and sold in limits of $250USD, meaning if you wanted say $500USD for your item your only bet is to list it on the GAH for whatever the value of $500USD of gold was on that day and hope someone buys the gold then buys your item.

    BUT... you get Blizzard double dipping.. First you need to sell you item and you get hit once, then you need to sell your gold and get hit again.

    They have thought of everything, the money machine that they are.

    that is the maximum starting bid, we dont know that you can't put a buyout above that and its unlikely that bidding will stop at any price.

    it was suggested by someone in another thread that there will be no fee to receive money (as its a transfer not a sale) but i haven't seen it said anywhere for sure and bliz does mention paypal fees in a few places.

    Re: Final Fee structure

    Hmmm intresting

    Greedy Blizzard /slap

    So now the game is: $1 + 15% on items
    15% sale fee + 15 % cash out fee on commities.

    The only other question is: Will PayPal take another fee for moving the money into your account, like it does with all other payments made to your paypal account.

    I hope Viledevil is right about there being no other additional paypal fee, would not surpise me if we get stuck with another % fee from paypal aswell.

    Rage xD

    I'm almost sure you can still sell for greater than $250, people can pay directly for any amount with credit card or paypal.

    Judging by those ridiculous fees I guess they aren't that interested to eliminate 3rd party trading after all.

    Interesting news, but what I gather from this post is that bids could potentially go higher in auction style sales.

    I'm pretty sure the paypal fee will be 2.9% with an additional .30 cents per transaction. It's how they've had fees set up for quite a while now. No reason they would change it.

    Re: Final Fee structure

    We won't be able to make any money the first week anyway, RMAH not live for the first week !!!!!!

    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/blog/5270376


    So much for all our "week 1" planning

    RMAH is turning into an epic fail, first new rip off fees and now no RMAH for 1 week wtf !
    Looks like 3rd party sites will thrive after all if they give better rates than blizzard, which is now not hard to do !

    PayPal will not charge any fees for transfers to them. You'll pay a 15% transfer fee to move any funds to your PayPal account, and then whatever you do with the money after that is between you and them. But the transfer to PayPal is 15%, and that's it.


    There really isn't any wiggle room is that statement from Bashiok unless they flip flop on it. No paypal charge.

    Re: Final Fee structure

    This is excelent news TBH.

    Did anyone really BELIEVED that Blizz will get ONLY 1.25$ for a 200$ item SOLD, while being happy with 15% from a 5$ gold sale?

    The 1$ + 15% changes nothing in bad, but in good.

    Firstly, there will be NO CHEAP **** in RMAH, and the new 1$ + 15% fees for items is GOOD :

    1.1.25$ fixed fee previously for 15$ sale = 8,33%
    1$ + 15 % now from a 15$ sale = 21,66%

    2.1.25$ fixed fee for a 50$ sale = 2,5%
    1$ + 15% now for a 50$ sale = 17%

    As you can see, it might be better to sell the 15$ weapon in GAH then sell the gold in RMAH...but, you gonna get hit by both AH fees.
    Meaning a higher price in GAH that covers both fees.

    Also, the higher the value of an items, the better to sell it in RMAH.

    As for the maximum set price of 250$...it means the bid price OR the buyout price, not bid AND buyout.So, a bid set to 250$ CAN be sold for 250$ or bigger...and blizz expects that (read the whole FAQ).

    Re: Final Fee structure

    Of course where Bashiok says there are no additional paypal fees the FAQ hedges it's bets and says

    Note that sending proceeds to PayPal will be subject to an additional 15% transfer fee if the auction succeeds, calculated based on the amount being transferred. Note that additional fees from PayPal may apply.

    Re: Final Fee structure

    There is no PayPal fees, there never was a PayPal fee. Transfering money is free with PayPal. Only the PayPal "sellers" (ie: Ebay for example) have fees. All Blizzard is doing is transferring money to you.
    Now as for the 15%, it is pretty steep. I knew they would do a % base on sales, however I didn't think it would be over 10%. My guess was 10% fee with a min. of $1.25. As for max purchase you can purchase items over $250 (as long as you have a source like PayPal linked to your account), the payment will be taken directly from your PayPal source and not Blizz balance.

    He might be referring to money transfers outside the US. Not sure how Blizzard will handle that.
