Why do EA even take 5% tax from sales?

★★★★ Novice

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**!

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

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!Confusedmileysad:Confusedmileymad:

It so people make a profit from buying and selling players.. For example (this is w/o ea tax), lets say i got van persie in a pack, and wanted to make profit, I would make the buy now price 1000 coins more expensive than the lowest bid, with the money from van persie's sell i buy another van persie for the lowest bid usually lower than my buy now price, and the cycle keeps going

This is really stupid, because it's meant to block coin sellers so players don't "cheat". But because of the tax it becomes extremely hard to trade, which is the only honest way to build your team, because playing matches just doesn't let you accumulate coins fast enough. If you are a bin snipper, 5% is a HUGE amount to let go of. If players can't trade and earn coins, there is only one way to get a great squad... You guessed it, It's buying coins, because everyone knows that fifa points are a huge waste of time, seeing how expensive they are. So stop being ignoramus (plural) and TAKE AWAY THE TAX!
