Cost per Transaction on the Waiver Wire
Cost Per Transactions: My current league is a cash league, however we also collect at the end of the year for roster pickups on the waiver wire. $2.50 per pickup, $2.50 per drop. A move cost $5.00 total.
In 2017, can Yahoo collect the transaction fee when the transaction is made?
Action: Have the paypal account link to Yahoo Wallet, everytime a transaction is made, the withdrawal is collected in the league pot.
2016 was even better as the Commissioner end of the year responsibilities are automated with payments with the collection of funds at the start of the season.

As it stands now, players that know about this loophole can take advantage of the continual rolling system that's based off of waiver acquisitions. An owner just needs to wait until the initial waiver selections go through, then they grab whoever and it doesn't count against their waiver priority. This then allows that league owner to keep moving up the waiver priority to eventually be sitting on #1 waiver priority until someone of great value comes available.
I suggest a 4th option to choose from that counts any and all waiver acquisitions against their waiver priority. That way, league owners that make few to no acquisitions whatsoever, remain at the top of the waiver priority, NOT those who have been active making acquisitions, but using the loophole of free agent acquisition over waiver acquisition. Some league commissioners may like this loophole and option, but it has created a lot of problems for my two leagues. Please add a fourth option that makes ALL acquisitions count towards their rolling waiver priority, based on their activity on the waiver wire in general.
I wouldn't look for Yahoo! to make a move in this direction. They have their own games for cash they support and private cash games.
One off type leagues or leagues that have some kind of custom payment process are not high on the priority list.
