Rereading your original post now Adam I'm thinking you meant this more in connection with that, which makes it more understandable to me

I do see your issue there, and that there is no real clear way to rationalize it as you noted. Hmm...

One might simply make it a percentage fee based on the basic cost of the item instead of the purchase or sale price. Then the Broker gets paid the same no matter the deal they make which might make more sense. For example a lot of 5tons of Blades selling for Cr10,000 per ton and a Broker-4 handling the deal, the Broker would get 20% (in CT) of Cr50,000, for a fee of Cr10,000 on the sale and/or purchase. It might actually cost you more to use a Broker than you'd save/profit on the deal. Not that the Broker would care or imagine it was their problem

Does MGT still require the Broker be payed their fee even if the lot is not bought or sold?

I'm also curious if MGT uses the same Broker fee percentage breakdown of 5% per skill level (and a max skill level of 4)?

Tricky question, but I'd allow it as a ref. Kinda like the foreign merchant zone mentioned in the thread over on SJG forum (link) today.
