I had to combine all of my toons funds so I could get one of those new tython saber hilts for my fresh guardian to use. Now all of my toons are broke. I ended up using up all of my CC and never got one.

I used to be pretty broke. Did dailies, (surprisingly, killing mobs for about an hour on Corellia and looting them for creds/gear to sell makes a decent amount of money) did Flashpoints and Ops, recently sold a Black Market Cartel Pack on the GTN for 400k, Now i'm at 950k or so. You'll get there, don't worry.

if you do Ilum once per week, you should be fine.

(Please don't take this as bragging) My highest is 36 (BH) and I have many, many alts. Most of which have taken all of the crafting professions (with exception of the one that makes stims and meds and such 'Biotech'?) With lucky drops being on the low end of the totem pole, most of my income has come from crafting. I just went over four million credits.

Selling low end starship parts, droid parts, my purple recipes in the crafts I have, have paid off. I shunt all my money to one character, as well as all the gathered resources (a few of my alts are just pure gatherers) You would be surprised at how much some specific mats are worth.

I'm patient and smart about trends. With the Cartel Market, there are alot of empty slots to fill in gear. I'm quite happy to supply them to the masses.

Crafting made me money, I guess I'm one of the MMO people who go that route. It's fun. Also what everyone else said about the zones, dailies ect.

You see this lack of credits does not come from excessive spending just when I hit 50 didn't give myself a good head start which in term led to a drop of credits over a certain amount of time. So is anyone else in the same boat?

Basically I'm broke don't understand all these credit sinks everywhere and wonder if some of you also have this credit problem.
I have about 500k spread across all my characters (8 total). That's only because I haven't been doing dailies lately and I haven't put any effort into crew skills yet (boooring). Do dailies, 300k a day or thereabouts.

If you have multiple 50's the easiest thing to do is Ilum dailies. I think I can normally run everything in right around 20 minutes per toon (soloing darkness). So 400k in an hour and 20 minutes. Next is black hole, same 20 minutes for ~80k each. I vendor all greens and gtn all blues, and I think I've gotten 3 schems for magenta crystals in the 3 months I've been doing this which can be sold for ~400k each on my server.

Another thing is to play the GTN. There's plenty of people who sell 340 crafting missions for 4320 (default price). If it's slicing or underworld trading, you can resell for almost 10x that. There are plenty of items going up for the default price, you just have to be looking for them. There's tons of ways to make credits in this game, you just have to look for it.

Another possibility is grab around 6 people (columi or so) and kill the first 9 or 10 trash groups in TFB. It'd take you maybe 20 minutes and net 35-40k and possibly a stabalizer (~200k).

It honestly depends on your servers economy, which is why I have a bone to pick with Biowares pricing scheme, which seems to be based off the old fatman and its high pop economy.

See, servers with less players, like Gav Daragon on Oceania for example, have a poorer economy. Example, 750,000 on Gav Daragon is a LOT of money, and not easily gained. Simply because the market lacks Sellers and Customers to feed the money through. So for something like the legacy items which can cost in the millions, it's damned near impossible to earn the money easily, and you generally don't want to drop a cool million on something that is just a show off item.
We want action regarding low player numbers on Oceania servers!
