<p>This one gave me something to ponder....</p><p> 2 different people. Same item on broker. Same address in same city (4 Bayle Court, SQ). Two different broker fees? Piddling amount here, but has this ever happened to anyone else?</p><p>(Screenshot proof!)</p><p><img src="http://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/0/6/7/9/8/6/webimg/36399753_o.jpg" border="0"><img src="http://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/0/6/7/9/8/6/webimg/36399755_o.jpg" border="0"></p>

One of the vendors will have the three year veteran reward - a 40 slot vendor crate that gives 10% brokerage

I've tried selling from Qeynos on an evil character and it still costed 40% extra for goodies.

<p>Heheh, I like the space alien explanation.</p><p>But, as one poster already said, it is the the 3 year veteran reward that causes the discrepancy.  As more and more people start qualifying to get this item, you'll see this more regularly.    It is a 40 capacity sales display that has only a 10 percent base broker fee vs. the standard 20 percent.   </p><p>I'm not sure, as I haven't seen any freeportian's with it, but I'm going to assume that the fee would be 30 percent for cross-faction brokering vs. 40 percent.</p>
