    I was wondering how the sell limit and 5% weekly fee interacted.

    Let's say I have 60k leather for sell, limit at 1k each sell.

    Would it sell 1k, then I have to reset, or will it sell another 1k out of stock?

    And is the 5% based off the 1k or 60k total?

    Wish I could really answer that one, but all I can really tell you is that during the short time I had a New Maginia stall, I saw how much it was costing me and decided to quit. *sigh*

    UOGuide has a very nice writeup on how the bazaar stalls work here: http://www.uoguide.com/Encampment_System .

    It does seem crazy expensive to charge 5% on items sold, and another 5% weekly

    I've already read this. It still doesn't answer the question about selling goods. It seems way too expesnive to use if it's the whole stock!!

    Don't forget there is also a renewable vender rental fee based on your bid. If after 7 days someone out bids your spot (not likely these days) or your vendor runs out of money, you have 7 days to pay up and collect your items, else they disappear. So, don't run vendors while on vacation.

    I don't think the fees and times are realistic or player friendly at all.

    The broker will sell all over the 1k limit, if you only want to sell 1k, you should set the sell limit to 59k, then he will sell all over 59k and only take fee for 1k.
    If you don't want him to sell at all, remove the sell price and it go in N/A

    The buy limit is how much you want to buy
    The Sell limit is how much you want to keep for own use before you start selling.

    Hope that help

    In your scenario, you would be offering 59k worth of leather and being charged the weekly fee on the 59k
    If you change your sell limit to zero, you would be offering 60k worth of leather and being charged the weekly fee on the 60k.
    If you change your sell limit to 59k, you would be offering 1k worth of leather and being charged the weekly fee on the 1k.
    If after you sell the 1k of leather, you want to sell another 1k of the leather, you would have to change the sell limit to 58k of the total 59k and would again being charged the fee of the 1k being offered.

    The best thing to do is have a second account, or have a trusted friend on their account, shop your vendors.
    What they see being offered to buy, is what you will be paying on the fee.
