The Dilithium Exchange works roughly how commodity and currency exchanges work in the real world. The Exchange where players trade EC for items is not a commodity exchange, it is more like classified ads where players offer an item for a specific price and other players can buy only at that price.

The system will not let you cheat yourself by paying more or receiving less. It will always give you the best deal. The system was specifically not designed to apply players to pay more than they need to, because that can lead to support problems and other types of manipulation of the system.
