How to Sell Items on "EVE Online"

Selling off your old items in the role-playing game "EVE Online" can give you the extra cash you need to buy upgrades and weapons for your spaceship. The selling itself takes place in markets on any space station found in the universe. Rather than selling directly to a merchant, you place items for sell within the space station and potential buyers travel to you to complete the transaction. Your best approach is to sell items at multiple stations at once.

Step 1

Right-click on a a space station within your current location. Select "Dock." Wait for your ship to proceed to the station and complete the docking procedure.

Step 2

Click on "Items" from the tool bar on the left side of the game screen. A pop-up box of all your available items will appear on the screen.

Step 3

Right-click the item you wish to place on the market and select "Sell." Click the "Advanced" tab.

Step 4

Type in the quantity of the item you want to sell. Only input a quantity up to the current stock in your ship.

Step 5

Type a "Sell Price" into the box provided. The current market price for your item will appear below the box. Gauge the price you wish to sell your items for based on the market price. Entering a higher price in the "Sell Price" box will yield a higher profit and slower sell while a lower than market price may yield a quick sell but a loss of potential profits.

Step 6

Enter the duration for the sell. The time you enter corresponds to the real world. Set your duration one day if you are playing on a weekend when more players are online or two to three days if you are starting on a weekday.

Step 7

Click "Sell" to place the item on the market. When a buyer chooses your item the money will be sent directly to your account.

Tip

Within the pop-up box that appears when you click "Sell" on your item is the option for a simple sell. This option is only available if someone has placed an order for your item at the station you are docked at and will allow you to instantly sell your items at the price dictated by the buyer.
