Pretty much every game with a cash shop allows you to either buy an item from the cash shop for a separate account or to purchase cash shop currency for another account. Nobody implements tradable cash shop currency though. I can't imagine swtor f2p to operate any differently.

Hmmm i'm getting a little bit worried about SW:TOR going this way, because of the following "hypothetical" case:

- I'm "rich" in RL and prepared to spend it for the game.
- I buy a lot of Cartel Coins.
- I buy a lot of very popular transferable items.
- I go to the GTN and sell these items for a lot of credits.
- I wait a few IDs/weeks, till some guilds has BE the highend content gear and sell this in the GTN.
- I go to the GTN and buy a lot of amoring, mods and enchantment etc. for credits.
- I have BiS gear.

Ok, not everyone might go this way and the ones who do, have to wait some time, but it will definitely possible to get the best items in the game by spending real money.
And im pretty sure a lot of ppl do this in other games, which provides those transferable items.

I hope i misunderstood "transferable items" or there is a mistakes in my scenario.

As long as I can use them for all my chrs on my account.It makes me a happy camper.
