# 1 Exchange = Ridiculous
02-01-2010, 12:37 AM
I just got one question for most of you all posting items on the exchange, and I understand it's early, prices really haven't been set yet but, still has to be said.

Common MKII items are not worth 30-60k credits most of those items you guys are posting on there are sold on vendors, for 2,500 at most. Uncommons MKIV for 200k plus? What the hell are you all thinking, come on lets all be sensible about this.

I love finding the exact same items from vendors for 10% of price that is posted on the Exchange. Gives me warm fuzzies.

supply and demand, prices fix itself. Id noone buys for that price, oprices will go down.

I have not even seen anything worth buying on the exchange. Let alone actually paying someones asking price.

You're telling me people are buying it for that price? Where are they getting their credits? I have 40k, and that's selling everything I don't need, batteries, hypos, and all. So where are they getting 200k credits to buy an uncommon MKIV they can get from a quest or a few vendors, especially when the majority of people I see are still in newb ships?

They aren't. Hence the item still being on the exchange.

This. If I search for an item I'm going to put up and it's not on the market I'll set a high price tbh, then lower a few times until it sells. Sometimes stuff goes for a pretty penny and at other times I end up pulling it and selling it to a vendor because the buy price is more than I can get on the exchange. It'll take a long time for the market to stabilize and tbh the game's economy has a lonnngggg way to go.

I put stuff on the exchange for little under the price it's worth. That way I get more than the 50% resale value and the buyer get to use it and 50% cash back later.

I have sold something for 1000, but mostly its the stuff around 300 that moves the quickest.
