In June, the real money auction house made its way to Diablo 3. This means that gamers now have the option of buying and selling items using real money, not just fake game currency or gold. This is pretty interesting and convenient; players who don't wish to spend time trying to earn gold in farming can buy items in the auction house for as low as $1.25 dollars in us currency.
There are two ways in which you can receive payment for items sold in the real money auction house:
1. Payment via your battle.net account
When you sell items, Blizzard takes $1.00 and then deposit the remainder to your battle.net account. This money is solely used for buying Blizzard products though. Once the money is added to the account, you won't be able to withdraw it.
2. Payment via your PayPal account
The second method in which you can receive payment for your items sold is to have it deposited directly into your PayPal account. Blizzard does take $1.00 plus 15% of the total price of what ever is sold. However, in this option players can do what ever they want with the money.
Regardless of whichever methods are chosen above, buyers will pay the price listed for items. This seems to be a good system. Players don't have to worry about finding time to farm for gold because they can simply purchase affordable items with real money in the real money auction house.
