    On Atlantic, in Luna, I saw a vendor with a number of high priced items totalling items up for sale on that vendor for about 350 - 400 millions gold.

    Did I calculate right that this vendor , assuming math for 350 millions, charges every real day some 8.5 millions in fees ?

    Even with the item reducing fees (how much that is ? 30% reduction ?) it would still be somewhere around 6 millions gp in fees per real day.

    Is that right or did I miscalculate anything ?

    Put your calculations in writing popps. I am interested in the answer to this question as well!

    Place a house on TC, place a vendor and put an item on it for 350M. I guess that will tell you the fee...

    ;)

    Oh, didnĀ“t know that. Thanks.

    Have to use four items then and I guess the result will be the same...
     
  6. I put about 28-30 million on my vendors. It came to 176000 a day.


    So x 10 1.76 million for 280 million to 300 million of items.


    Close enough.

    Why does it matter?

    Vendor fees are part of the sale. Lots of people think its a loss of money. Its the price of selling.

    The other option is to stand and spam. No fun.

    I allways count the vendor fee as 1% of the total value.
    Its not 100% accurate but it gives me a good estimate. Works good for me.



    I dont run vendors atm but i have at several ocations had vendor fees around a couple of mill each day. I allso make many millions @ week this way so its worth it.

    Aren't vendors still getting over by removing items before a certain time, or did they finally fix that? Most of the vendors I see are merely BOD holders...annoying.

    You mean there were/(are ?) work arounds to avoid paying vendors' fees ?

    Players can sell whatever they want and pay nothing in fees ?

    Really ?

    only for bods u can set a book up on a vendor for/as storage with no charge and was set up by developers for crafters as bods can take huge lock downs!!

    and they fixed some vendors if u take off early get a vendor charge put onto item so cant move to abckpack and back on!!

    poops how does this relate to your fix game for 1 week old players they dont have 350 m on a vendor ????
    are u trying to learn game at this stage, more your questions seem, more every week to more noobish?? are you starting to play ??

    can i offer good topics bleesed suit drops in dungeons, and sots both to help new players!!

    or are you advancing and will write a theme on idocing for young players?? hear on grape vine it is set up against new players as they have to mark runes to check back maybe they can when log in get a pop up saying cordinates to them!
