Why not the other way?

The way I see it, the person sending the GC is giving just as a seller gives the sold item. So they, the giver, should be the one to create a Geek Market listing.

It's always the person receiving the gc/paypal/cash that makes the listing.

Thanks, but ....

Yes, I know that is how it is done. What I'm saying is that I don't understand why they choose to do it that way. The sender whether selling or trading should be the sender and make the listing. Also the BGG fees involved should be an expense of the sender who is responsible for shipping costs. The BGG fees are the shipping/transferring cost in this situation. So I'd just like to know why they do it that way. These things are rarely arbitrary. They probably have a reason. Rules make more since when you know the reason for them.

Two people send something; one sends a game, one sends paypal/gc/cash/check.

If you receive a game (whether in an auction or trade) you don't pay 3%.

If you receive a gc/paypal/cash, whether in an auction or math trade, you pay 3%.

So it comes down to what you are receiving.
