That's what you get for being a greedy hoarder. Now the only thing for you to do is delete (or give away) enough of your crap that you can once again post items. Then, post the remainder of your backlog up for reasonable prices (i.e. slightly lower than the current lowest).

you might like to consider this before you go mad with consoles . very slowly but surely fleet vendors are making mk 12 consoles obsolete and its not a far stretch of the imagination that tactical consoles will be next

The problem here, is that bulk purchases of rare items in STO don't work the same way it does in real life.

I can charge MORE for 100 artefacts than I can selling them in stacks of 5. There's a very simple reason for this - they are high demand items, and hard to get hold of in bulk.

The people looking to buy lots of artifacts/contraband are doing so because it's less effort on their part, it saves them a lot of time and effort hawking the exchange and buying them all up and waiting for the price to go down. If artifacts are selling currently at 700k each, you can probably only buy 20-40 before the price has risen to 800k, so it doesn't make sense that I'd sell all of mine for 500k. I might take the current lowest market price for all of them, but I'd never go less than that because it's bad business to do so. Anyone that has 1,000 artifacts or a few thousand contraband is likely an experienced player who knows how to make his money and understands the way the market goes.

Selling 50 artifacts at market price is extremely easy, you can always find a buyer. If I had 500 to sell then I would likely split them into stacks of 50. Ten stacks of 50 at market price wouldn't take you that long to sell - and when you're talking about such a large amount of EC nobody is going to say "Nah, I'll sell them at a 200k discount and lose out on 75m+ profit for the convenience of not having to advertise for 2 hours" - because throwing away 37.5m/hour for sitting in chat advertising would be insane. Even if you have 50 characters, it's going to take you over a month to farm 500 artifacts. That's a lot of effort to put in, to sell them stupidly cheap.

The crux of my post is this: If you want 500 artifacts in bulk, from one buyer, expect to pay market price for them. If not, you'll have to spend countless hours getting them all.

(NB: Numbers used in this post are for illustrative examples only)

Also, this.

We will eventually get fleet tactical consoles, the market will crash and it'll take the alien artifacts with it. When that day comes, I'll need to find a new market to replace my spending money.

Maybe he's filled his mail with things that didn't sell, and doesn't know you can take them out?

Taking the current asking price and the Exchange for Strange Alien Artifacts and rounding it down 500 of them would be worth about 350 Million EC and that's on the low end

I've just recently got back into running the Proto Type Console Doff mission and I gotten lucky with a few results and was able to sell some of them for over 30 million EC each more in the case of the Antiproton Mag consoles.

Tactical Consoles will always be in demand regardless of whether Fleet Tactical Consoles become available IMO.

Another thing that you have to take into account is that the best consoles that we can get from running the Doff mission are the very same consoles that can be found in the Zen store Doff packs has added possible prizes and I doubt that Cryptic would want to take away from the draw of those packs by giving us shore fire ways to get the Tactical Consoles that we all need
