When will people learn, selling an item for 1copper/bronze above the vendor price, Will no only  actually make you less money then vendoring it because of the LISTING FEES that people seem to ignore. But that its also a stupid idea.

True! i even forgot about that myself!


Selling Fee

The listing fee for selling on the Trading Post is 5% of the sales price. This listing fee is not returned even if the listing is cancelled. Upon successful trade an additional 10% fee is deducted from the price, i.e. the total cost of a successful sale is 15%.

It's a gold sink, or more of an idiot based gold sink.

I've been quite surprised by how generous people are with their prices. I guess I got far too used to, well, WoW, where everybody is trying to make a fortune off of level 10 gear etc. I'm kind of hoping it will last a while, to be honest. I've had enough of hyper-inflated economies in mmo's.

In wow people controlled the market with buying all the goods of one thing on the market, i highly doubt someone is gonna buy 5000 copper ore worldwide to get the price up 2 copper

Not now, fox. A few months down the road though, you can be sure people with the capital will be trying to monopolize certain commodities. It's just part of the game, I think.

I completely forgot about the selling fee, and was wondering why I only got 27 silver for an armor piece when I sold it for 30 :)

As for the question, I'm not sure... I give it about a month.
On the other hand, I really enjoy buying my matching gear at minimal price xD
