Ok, I’ll admit the title is a bit misleading, as the fees only take up 83% of the profits if the item is sold at the minimum allowed price of $1.50. However, at the same time, it does not include the cash-out fee or the Paypal fee, so the percentage will actually be higher if you add those.
A few days ago, Blizzard posted in their forums about some upcoming changes to the auction house pricing fees for Diablo 3. While it seems they’re moving in the right direction, they still don’t have it nailed down.
Below are the changes that will soon be implemented in the beta:
- Listing fee is being removed.
- Transaction fee is being increased to 1.25 Beta Bucks.
- Minimum listing price is being raised to 1.50 Beta Bucks.
- You will be limited to 10 active auctions per auction house.
While the removal of a listing fee is great, the successful sale transaction fee has been increased to $1.25. So let’s see how this affects items sold at the following price points.
