The topic is about this year's changes in fees for Marketplace sales, LindeX transactions and credit processing.
The Marketplace fee per sale and the credit processing are raised by 100% compared to the previous fee, the latter also no longer has an upper limit.
To provide some context, here are the fees as they will be effective on December 2, 2019.
LindeX transaction: 3.5%
Credit Processing fee: 5%
Marketplace sales fee: 10%
As a citizen of Austria (Central Europe
I did this calculation:
If I buy 2500L$, it cost me $9.73, and with transaction fee of US1.49 the final cost is US$11.22
If I sell an item on the MP for L$2500, I now get L$2250 for it. (10% LL commission as of Dec 2nd 2019)
When I sell the L$2250, I get US$8.13. (3.5% transaction fee to LL)
When I withdraw the balance to my bank, I get US$7.72 (5% Transaction fee to LL)
So if a SL member buys L$2500 and the merchant cashes it in, we are seeing a transformation of US$11.22 to US
