Why do EA even take 5% tax from sales?

It doesn't prove to be of any use and you just lose so much coins from it and will never get back the money that you bought a player for. EA don't need it and it just makes selling players **bleep**!

Re: Why do EA even take 5% tax from sales?

In order to control the rapid rate at which some huge Ultimate Team traders/coin sellers seem to accumulate coins, EA has implemented a tax structure in FIFA 13 Ultimate Team.


Some players suspect that it's just another way to stimulate more pack sales. 5% isn't a lot,You probably won't really even notice the taxes, unless you are a coin seller yourself.But it is important to be aware of Ultimate Team taxes for when you are involved in more significant trading numbers.


EA takes 5% for any player-to-player trade. This includes cards of any kind, just anything you're selling or buying on the trade market. The taxes are deducted from the final sale price that is given to the seller. Theoretically, the seller gets taxed.



Hope this helps

Re: Why do EA even take 5% tax from sales?

Yeah, I understand where EA are coming from but I used to have a million coin team. I don't trade but when I invest in high priced players, and after I've had enough of them, I sell them and I have around 900k instead of the full 1 million. 

Ok I can understand you want to make it harder for traders but normal fifa ultimate team players like myself also pay the price. And I don't believe this is anyway fair!:smileysad::smileymad:
