For every trade of an item with a value of above 100 gp per item, the buyer pays 1 more coin, which the seller does not get. buying 2000 sharks? that's 2000 coins gone. S twisted bow? Just 1 coin still. This would mainly prey on the lower-value items, such as food, bought in bulk, and it would be a very good gold sink, as it would have little effect on the average player, but since the GE is used so much, it would still have such a huge effect.

People don't want taxes, it has been proposed before and has been shot down every time.
And such a low tax isn't even gonna do a damn thing.

This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

sounds like this would have an outsized effect on the lower priced items and the poorer players, whereas the big purchase items that are bought by players who can really afford to pay a bit extra have almost no extra payment. I've wanted a tax for a while, but it would need to be a scaling tax that doesn't disproportionately hurt new players. Ooh, a light at the end of the tunnel...
...Do you think I should get off the tracks?

it's only on items with 100 gp or higher value. so if a 'poor' player can afford to buy 1000s of those, then another 1000 coins should be nothing.
