How to do it


First of all you have to make sure, that your buy/sellorder is highest on the list. Otherwise someone else will sell your item cheaper. So atleast once a day, you have to modify your prices, to make sure they are on top. Like everything else in EVE this will take time to set up, but once you get going you will notice a big change in income. Especially right after modifying the prices, you will see a big spike in isk earned per hour. So the more often prices are modified the more you earn.
