(SOLVED) Sell Order Bug

EDIT – Ignore this moronic post. I need sleep and wasn't paying attention to the 100 ISK minimum. Ugh

So I’ve studied the patch notes re: broker fee modifications in the latest release, but I think CCP broke something with this latest update. I’m getting WILDLY different fees depending on which item I try to place sell orders.

Examples – 3 Month Sell Orders:
- Concussion Bomb = 2.5% Broker | 1.2% Transaction
- Liquid Ozone = 40% Broker | 1.2% Transaction
- Iridium Charge M = 2.5% Broker | 1.2% Transaction
- Nitrogen Isotopes = 10.8% Broker | 1.2% Transaction
- Water = 2.5% Broker | 1.2% Transaction
- Bacteria = 31.83% Broker | 1.2% Transaction

I have no clue why there’s such a huge variation in broker fee. My original thought was that items I received via Sell Order (pre-patch) had a “grandfathered“ broker fee. However, the Bacteria and Liquid Ozone were each purchased a few minutes ago.

Anyone have any thoughts on all of this?

it's because the minimum broker fee is 100ISK Blink

This had me tearing my hair out for a couple of days last month. I couldn't figure it out until I noticed the fee changing on different items. Was it always like this or did it change sometime recently?

Yeah it's always been like this (at least for as long as I can remember)

Ironically though, it looks like they may have gotten rid of broker fees when modifying buy orders to a certain extent? Havn't figured out what extent that is yet, but it's not charging me when it's only a few isk modified.
