Well if you don't buy then from this website you could buy Cartel Coin Cards.

Achievement grant very little and are more of a 'bonus' thing not a continuous supply.

If you can't actually buy them in anyway the best thing to do would be to increase your monthly grant of complementary coins, as a subscriber you should already get 500 coins (or more depending on your subscription, see here) you can also use a physical or mobile (free) security key which will add another 100 each month and also using the Friends of SWTOR program will also grant you extra coins.

The only way to get Cartel Coins without buying them is to attach a Security Key to your account. This gives you an instant grant of 100 coins, and a loading screen says that you also get another 100 each month. Since there is an App version of the Security Key, and that app is free, you can get 100 Coins per month for free. You can also get 160 coins by playing each of the 8 classes' (Imp side and Republic side) initial planet. Other than that, the only way to get Cartel Coins is to spend money.

You can also get Cartel Coins from Achievments but I recommend just buy the cartel coins because you can be playing this game for five years and with achievments get like 300 cartel coins

Well..........they have to stay rich.....the only way to do that is to make the game free to play.........and then make you pay to actually have fun in the game. People that are on for hours a day ....should get rewarded for their time. Let us earn them in game. That would make it a lot better.

I am a subscriber. I receive 500 coins a month. I don't get the security 100 or so because I have a WIndows phone, not android or IOS.

If there is something I really want I buy enough coins to flesh out my desires. I just did this for my Trooper. I recently bought a bunch to try the packs, but haven't really decided to use them yet.

Point being, if you like the game and you can by a really good armor set every 3 months. If you want more, pay for it.

So you say that having access to 8 stories and about 70% of the rest of the game for free is not fun?
Also people that get rewarded for their time are also often called: people who have jobs. What is the point of rewarding people who play for free? It's like letting a stranger into your house, you let him watch your TV play your games feed him and in the end he feels entitled to get some pocket money form you... it doesn't work that way, you play for free, you have fun, for free, and that is more than enough they should give.

The coins rewarded are 20 per achievement, for the ones that give them. I have gotten 33 of them for 660 coins total, since they launched the achievement system. And I don't know that there are many more available. There are a few things you could get with that amount of coins, but not much.

You can refer me as a friend for either cartel coins, or in game extras. I can't remember which...
Referral link for both of us to get free things in-game such as Cartel Coins, droid pets, booster packs and more!
