Here's the idea:
In the major towns(or maybe in just one) there are an auction where people can sell their items. You can sell you're items there and you're profit are decided buy how much the item is sold for. And the auctionkeeper keeps 10% of the profit.
The item would be inte the auction house for lets say 2 days and if there's no bid the item returnes to the seller for a fee of 5cc.
The item will sill be there for biding when the seller loggs out
When you bid on an item you have to rise 5% over the current bid.
you can always see all availible items and their deadlines(2 days after the seller turnes the item in). But there must be something to prevent playes from biding when a few secounds remain, this could be solved buy this: when a player bids on an item with less than 5 min remaining the deadline is set to 5 min after that bid

What do you think?

erm.... As I said in the other post, it's easier to come here and post what you're selling and keep all the money for yourself.

yeah but that's a lot more work. You can just put the item in the auction house and log off if you like or sell it to an NPC.
You could get a high price on an auction, probely higher then then sell person to person but you loose 10%. perhaps 10% is too high lets say 5%

And if someone bids way too much than he has?
Let's say, someone bids 400gc. No one would try to top that, and there's no way anyone would get to that... Seller loses two days and precious 5cc.

hmm, maybe you can't bid more then you have
And when you bid you put you're money in the auction house and when some one overbids you can collect you money there and bin again if you want

I think auction houses could stir prices up a bit. Posting a sale would force you to reveal your identity. Otherwise it's "OMG, there's a sword for sale more powerful than mine, and it's not even on DE!"

That way, you could keep selling those really neat items without revealing your identity and getting PM spammed, both on the forums and in-game, with questions about how you get the item, rather than bids.

Of course, there are other ways around these problems, that don't even require new features. But hey, I find it a desirable option.

Though, I'm not voting in the poll. I don't like polls for suggestions.

Sounds like the Auction Houses in World of Warcraft. It would be cool since I sit there and bid on cool items. But yeah, when you actually bid on the item you leave your bidding money at the Auctioneer so you can't bid more than you have.

Or you could set up Player Shops. You could be anywhere or the Dev's could set up a designated spot, maybe near a bank or something, and players can set up a Shop. The shop can be viewed when another player clicks on the player that is selling stuff and a shop window comes up. PLayers that have shops up could have a mini message above their head or something saying they have a shop open.
