Now if the 13% commission were based on the lower base value as the new deposit rules are calculated that would be more acceptable. Clarification as to what is intended would be much appreciated.
Agreed, not ever does the system or BW include us in on what the commission takes until you get the first mail when someone buys it (which is annoyingly too late).

The change you see is only due to the deposit, as how it is calculated (before and now) is when someone buys your item you get: your listed price + your deposit - the tax/commission. Before 1.5 the deposit would sometimes be in the 10k's credits and easily covered the commission and you wouldn't think any less of it. Now the deposit is considerably lower and does not cover the commission so we begin to notice it.
Maybe I don't want a signature....
