Introduction to Gas Fees
The Ethereum network requires anyone who wants to sell or buy NFTs for the first time to pay two types of commissions.
These fees are necessary to interact with the Ethereum network, enable your wallet, sell and buy virtual assets.
The price of the two types of commissions is not fixed but you can do everything possible to lower it.
All commissions must be paid in Ether, so this means that the price depends on the value of the cryptocurrency against a dollar or what your local currency is.
It becomes necessary to pay a gas commission to compensate the energy required to process these transactions.
Prices can be checked on Etherscan, so you can find days when they are lower than others.
One Time fees and Recurring fees
Specifically, the two types of commissions to be paid to operate on Sgozz app, are the One-time fees and the Recurring fees.
If this is the first time you interact with Ethereum and want to make operations, it is necessary to pay the One-time fee, necessary to grant particular permissions for your wallet to interact with Seaport.
Seaport is a new Web 3.0 marketplace protocol that will help buyers and sellers with these trasactions, and in particular users can use their existing NFTs to purchase other NFTs.
So, in your first transaction there will be this One-time fee, but then you can operate on Ethereum, paying only the Recurring Fees for those specific operations.
For what regarding the #WETHs, it's the same speech of Ethereum, that the first time you access the WETH, you need to pay the One-time fee.
One-time fees have a higher price than Recurring fees, but this can be lowered with some tricks like:
Making these transactions at particular times such as late at night and early in the morning;
Check the prices of gas tariffs on Etherscan.
