Not many people can do the math to figure out
just what C Gold's transaction fees are.
Here's some examples to help you.
Example of what a receive fee does to you. This
was on a day when gold was $30.1959/gram.
On 7-28-2009 a man sent me $207 in STP to be able to receive $200 in C Gold. STP deducted 1.5% plus 35 cents
from the transaction and left me only $203.65 - they took $3.35 in a receive fee. That's actually 1.618% for me to be able
to receive the money from this man.
I spent $203.65 to the man's C Gold account but he only received $198.25 which was another $5.40 loss, or receive fee on his end.
$5.40 divided by $203.65 = 2.65%. When all was said and done, C-Gold charged him a 2.65% receive fee or transfer fee to be able to receive the $203.65 so as to cause him to only receive a spendable $198.25
Note that in the C Gold fee chart below you have
to convert grams of gold to dollars for it to make any sense to you and it
the higher the transaction amount the less the percentage of the gouge. If when you do swaps you figure in a 3% receive fee
you should be covered, except for very small spends when they charge 5% plus.
Continuation of the example: I sent the guy in the example above another $5 so he could get the full $200 he needed to fund the program he was interested in funding. $5 divided by $30.1959/gram was .165 grams I transferred. They state below that the transfer fee for that is 1.25% + .00375 grams, which should have been then .0125 x $5 + .00375 x $30.1959/gm = 6.25 cents plus 11.33 cents = 17.58 cents 17.58 divided by 500 = 3.5%. The receive fee for a $5 transfer was supposed to be 3.5%
However, the man received the money and proceeded
to do the $200 spend but only ended up with $1.38 left in his account after the
$200 spend. So in reality of that $5 spend, $198.75 + $5 -$200 = $1.38 means
they charged him $2.37 for that $5 transfer.
But that isn't quite correct either because he didn't notice exactly what was in his account at the exact time he received the $5 and did the $200 spend. C-Gold deals in gold which fluctuates in price every ten minutes or so. So your account is going to fluctuate depending upon what gold is doing at that very moment also.
c-gold is accounted by weight (G), not USD or any other National Currency unit. All fees are specified in grams (G) of gold, and are based on the weight of gold transferred or held.
