Is there a Fee for Currency Exchange?
If so what is the fee rate for buying and selling?

When I was trying to buy Gems with 1 gold, I was getting 43. But when i was trying to buy 1 gem i was getting a price 3s 83b. (43Gems x 3s.83b = 1g 65s)

So i don’t understand why buying 43 one by one costs 65 silver more then buying 43 with 1 gold…

There is a 15% fee calculated into the quote you are receiving, there is no fee beyond that. What you see is what you get.

It is just a spread forced by us, but you can look at it as a fee too.

Is there a reason gem>gold is over an exchange instead of through buy and sell offers? I wonder what the formula behind this is, in GW1 the traders were known to have ridiculous prices because the formula made no sense.

Yes, many, many good reasons.
I don’t currently have the time to go into the reasons as it’s a vast discussion. I think it may have been discussed some time ago on these forums, I don’t particularly remember.
