So how much do I actually get from selling gold at the RMAH?

#1MioPosted 11/28/2012 11:01:52 AM
So I got around 100m from a trifecta ring I sold and maybe I could make some money outta that since that gold's not even enough to upgrade my barb's gear anymore. 250k DPS without WoTB's enough for me to have fun farming MP8. >_>

Anyway, back to my question. The rate now's 34 cents per 1 million gold but there are certain fees (15% each for transaction and transfer fee or something like that). So if I manage to sell 1 million gold, I'll only get 70% of 34 cents on my Paypal for a grand total of 23 cents?

Am I better off just sniping things and sell them at the RMAH instead?... but then again I rarely stay on the AH. lol

How hard is that to check yourself?
You go to RMAH, choose for sell gold, select 1 million and see what get for it...

You should have sold the item in the RMAH.

I just dug out my old paypal account just now so too late for that. Anyway, does anyone know how much? Is it straight 30% deduction or just deduct 15% from the 85%?

The init sale takes 15% then they take 15% of whatever the traded balance is.

it's been fluctuating daily, getting about that low, then going back up to 32, 33 cents. If you price it at 33 it should still move.

That being said, here is the math breakdown:

0.33 * 100 = 33.00

33.00 * .85 = 28.05

28.05 * .85 = 23.8425

So you would recieve 23.84 if you manage to sell it all @ .33 per million.


Conversely, had you priced it on the RMAH @ $33.00, you would receive:

33.00 - 1.00 = 32.00

32.00 * .85 = 27.2

27.2 - 23.84 = 3.36

A difference of $3.36 in fees. Yikes. I want to profit from the game, as I can tell you do too, at least a little. However, I try to give them as little as I can in fees.

Currently. I've profited from my purchase, but only slightly.

I'll still try selling it in the gold AH for now for 100m minimum bid. If it doesn't then I'll sell it in the RMAH next time. I OP'ed it a bit since there's a better one expiring within 4 hours. >_>
