This is why I have a Mailbox and GTN terminal on my ship. Pure isolation

I've been getting about 1,050 for Polyplast and it sells like hot cakes. Electrum is about 700 per unit and is not a fast seller.

On the other hand, things like MK-6 kits were at around 32,000 per and now easily go for about 38,000. I sold ten yesterday in the 40,000+ range.

LOL, things like Biometric Alloy which was in the 100,000+ range go for about 3,000 each. Yesterday I picked up ten (for my own crafting) at 700 each.

Early on I was concerned about being a one trick pony and built a large product base. It has paid off and I stack mats that I know will always be in demand but are selling low at the moment and list / dump the ones that are selling high at any time. Mutagenic Paste always sold at a good price and then tanked. I stacked a couple of thousand of them in my cargo hold. It has taken a bit of time, but the pricing (at least for now) has come back and is higher than it had been. So I dumped a lot of paste this weekend and made a ton of profit.

Except for few specific mats, the GTN market has always exhibited wide variations in pricing for any mat over a length of time. This is because there is not a constant demand or high volume of sales for most items , So my approach is to keep reserves and move with the markets - list what is high and build cargo hold reserves for what is not,

Pretty sure it was mentioned before, but.

1. Poor interface.

2. Poor interface.

3. Poor interface.


Did I mention poor interface?

Couldn't agree more with this one.
If I need a few of something I REFUSE to buy from someone that puts up dozens of 1 piece of an item.
I avoid them like the plague, I don't care if I have to pay double the price, I won't buy from them. Period.
All they are trying to do is have their product listed on multiple pages to increase sales.
Sorry Charlie, I will never buy from you if you're selling 50 individual mutagenic paste, not even for 1 credit.

People who undercut too much. When you're undercutting for over 35% you're not helping yourself or the market for that item. Overtime this practice only lowers the price of said item to a fraction of what it once was (whether the demand or supply have increased it still happens).

As do I. Wish they could make you use stacks of 5 or more for green or blue mats and allow only purples to do stacks of 1 or 2.

Tho admittedly I would snap up an mat at 1 credit no matter what.

Drop-down menus and stupid search system:

Also, result varies from time to time (for example - today i found "belt", but not tomorrow). ie this is not search but a random search.

Please, fix it!

It works really really well actually. It is also makes the market much more stable (in the favour of all sellers) than the alternative.

Shadowlands has a bad case of this now, 30k+ for power crystals, yet CC Speeders are going for 5k each. I keep buying them up for alts and reselling them in the morning I have at leasted doubled my money.
