I’m still relatively new (< 3 weeks) to EVE. I’ve been finding my way around pretty well and usually can find the answers I seek via my own research. However, I hit a problem that’s got my head scratching, and I’m not really sure if I’m doing something wrong or if there’s a bug. Anyway, I figured the best way to do this would be to describe what I’m experiencing and hopefully someone can lend me some insight.
Here’s the scenario… I have 600 units of Product-X that I’d like to sell. Looking at the Market, there is a Buy Order for 2,000 units of Product-X placed 3 jumps away (which is highlighted in Green, so it is within range) that would like this item for 1,200 ISK each. Great! I right-click on Product-X and select “Sell This Item”. Setting the Sell Order to “Immediate”, Product X is highlighted in RED indicating that I can’t sell it.
I thought that perhaps it was because the sell value defaulted to something close to 1,700 ISK, so I lowered it to 1,200 ISK. No dice, I still can’t sell it.
Then, I thought if I offered it at an even lower cost that maybe the Buy Order would kick in… so I changed it to 1,199 ISK. Item is still highlighted in RED.
Finally, I figured I’d try creating a Sell Order for a week in length at 1,199 ISK and maybe then the Buy Order would kick in and take it… but still nothing. So its sitting in the Market now, but I hate that I had to waste a Market Order on this as I wanted to just sell it ASAP.
I mean, this isn’t an epic amount of ISK, but its annoying because I want to get rid of Product-X now and I don’t want to space it if I can get 720K ISK for it. I’m not sure if I’m doing something wrong or if I should be reporting this as a bug. Can someone advise?
