How is the auction house fee calculated?
- Why is there a deposit fee for the auction house?
- Why is it so high?
- Where does the deposit go?
Deposits are based on the Merchant Sell Value for the item. When you successfully sell the item, the deposit will be returned, but the auction house will take a percentage of the winning bid as its fee. Auction Houses are run by goblins and merchant cartels, so naturally, these greedy auctioneers will take their cut!
We recently made some significant updates to the Auction House, which you can read about here.
All auction house sales are final. These fees cannot be refunded.
