Consignment is a sales service offered by vendor NPCs that allow you to list items for sale to other players.
Putting up an item for sale
- Select an item to sell (drag and drop).
- Set a price
- A mark-up fee of 10% is added to whatever price you specified.
- A non-refundable stocking fee of 100 gold is charged immediately.
If your items isn't sold within 7 days, it will be returned to you (ed: unclear if one has to visit the NPC again?).
It seems there is currently a limit of consignments per NPC ("Active consignments 1 of 2").
There also appears to be a weekly limit of consignments ("1 of 4") (ed: is it per NPC?)
What happens when an item is sold
When an item is sold you will see the following message in a little popup window:
Your Item has Been Sold
Your <item name> sold to <character name> for 3000 gold. The
consignment fee of 10% has been removed, and the
remaining 2700 gold has been delivered to you!
[You received 2700 gold. ]
