Title: Public Auction Consignment Fees
Post by: CricketHill on June 30, 2013, 04:59:57 AM
Would it be possible to wave the $5k consignment fee for public auctions? A good number of horses go for $1-2k, and if I'm paying a consignment fee I'm actually paying someone $3-4k to take a horse off my hands. I'd like to add some ponies to the mixed auction, but the lost $3-4k adds up quickly.

Granted, this doesn't apply really to the select auction.

Done. It was initially setup to avoid people creating bogus auctions, but that doesn't seem to have been a problem lately.

The consignment fee for the Select Auction still applies, because if you can't make back at least 20k from your horse there, you should find a different method of selling him/her.
