Diablo III Auctions Detailed

Blizzard announces a new Global Play functionality for Battle.net to allow Diablo III players to play on servers in different regions. They also announce a new Auction House Website for the action/RPG as home to the in-game auction functionality in the action/RPG sequel. This FAQ has all the details, including how the house rake will work:

In the gold-based auction house, a 15% transaction fee will be deducted from the final sale price of a successful auction.

In the real-money auction-house, for equipment such as weapons and armor, a fixed transaction fee will be deducted from the seller for each piece of equipment successfully sold. This fee is assessed only if the item is sold. For commodities such as crafting materials, gems, gold, and other “stackable” items, a 15% transaction fee will be deducted from the total sale price.
[…]
Note that additional fees apply for players who choose to receive the proceeds of their successful auction via PayPal™ (in regions where this option is available). See the Functionality section of this FAQ for further details.

Multiplayer is integrated in singleplayer in such a way that singleplayer gamers can use the AH without the normally tedious steps of first getting into a multiplayer section of the game. In this way they'll use the AH as just that: a singleplayer AH. This is the first game with such an integration which is why my hypothesis is what it is.

I apologize if I missed your earlier explanation but I'm curious why you think the RMAH will be heavily influenced by people just going through the story campaign. They have both the RMAH and the gold AH available to them as well, I would posit they would be just as likely to use either (or none). Also the people just sort of playing for the story probably aren't as likely to do multiple replays in the same frequency as people who are playing for the MP and even if they did I'm not sure that would necessarily have any bearing on AH activity.

I agree with Krovven, I just don't see it. It's not really tedious to get into the MP side of things either, Blizzard made it very accessible and exposed well in the interface. They don't really need items as training wheels or anything, you gradually build up to that through the difficulty progression.
