Just to clarify the account types from Paypal, if I am going to sell loot on the RMAH then Premiere would be the account type that I need correct? Personal would be just for those that want to purchase and not sell on the RMAH correct?

You don't sell anything on the auction house with your PayPal account. In fact, once funds are in your PayPal account they can't be used to purchase items. You purchase items using your Battle.net Balance, which is a Blizzard-held currency.

I recommend reading through the How To guide to get a better handle on the separation between PayPal and your Battle.net Balance. http://us.battle.net/d3/en/services/auction-house/how-to

I did notice that PayPal talks about a percentage for "sellers" per transaction. Can we assume that each time we transfer money into PayPal counts as a single transaction...which would then by subjected to the PayPal fees?

Please understand...I don't know if I'm right. I'm also curious to make sure I understand what happens "beyond Blizz". I'm not sure if a CM can answer this query, as technically it doesn't have anything to do with Blizz at this point in the transaction.

EDIT: From Bashiok's link I found a link to another Blizz document that says this:

Note that the process of sending proceeds to a third-party payment service will be subject to applicable fees charged by Blizzard and the third-party payment service.

I think we have to ask PayPal what they charge. But if a CM does know, it would be appreciated if you could just confirm.

There is a paypall fee when you take money out of paypal and put it in your checking account. I forget the percentage.

So this is the fee breakdown:
1) $1 fee if your auction sells. Blizzard profit.
2) 15% fee when you transfer your Blizzard account money to Paypal. BLizzard profit.
3) Paypal fee "i forget how much that is" when you transfer your Paypal money to your checking account.

If you have used Paypal for a very long time and very often they take a very little fee for transfers

I for one hope Blizzard makes a killing off of this so they keep seeing a reason to make more expansion. Love me some Diablo.

So, if we can only purchase Items using our Battle.net Balance why are we able to choose a paymment method after buying an Item?

If you are using the real-money auction house, you’ll be prompted to select a payment method before finalizing your bid.

For the record, you can get a PayPal debit card that connects to your PayPal balance. You can use that to add to your Battle.net Balance. The debit card / Paypal account can be configured to use your Paypal balance first, then your checking account.

Just wanted to make sure that part was clear. You can, in essence, use your Paypal account to buy items, it's just a tad more convoluted.

Cad: You're using that payment method to add funds to your Battle.net Balance first, but it looks like they streamline the process. I think Bashiok was being overly cautious in how he explained how the process works.

...choose how to receive the proceeds of your auction if it succeeds. ...you can have the proceeds sent to your PayPal account...


Sorry Bash, but it feels like you didn't read the question.
He plans to sell items with the type of auction that transfers money to paypal - and he wonders what account type in paypal he should have to link it to blizz account.

That's actually quite interesting question, but I'm afraid you need to find info on paypal pages.
If anyone finds related info please provide us a link.

I always though you can receive money with standard account but maybe there are lower limits on how much ?

On the standard account, I think there is a limit on how much you can transfer to your checking account per day(week/month?). It's like 500 dollars. Also the paypal fee is like 2.90% to transfer to checking.

Makes sense, thanks for the clarification!

I phrased my original question wrong. But yeah I was wondering if receiving money through would require me to set up a premium account versus standard. But i found a site, though its not from Paypal, that said only if you intend to make a sale and that buyer wants to pay YOU directly with with a Credit Card, only then you will need a Premium account. But since Blizz handles the Credit Card part and we get our cut, we don't need a Premium account, a Standard one will do.
