So I’ve always been a proponent of selling things away from market hubs, making my prices as low as possible and using sites like EveMarketer to verify all of that. I’ve managed to sell things I’d receive from exploration fairly well in Genesis, away from the “market hub” of that region in Apanake. However, as I’ve recently moved to Aridia and the region is, for the most part, entirely lowsec, I’ve been wondering whether I should try establishing something there or not.
I base out of a lowsec system with multiple gates in to the system, and one that isn’t as violent as some of the other systems in the region as I figured accessibility and being in a system that seems safer than others around may be more attractive to potential buyers. What’s holding me back from fully committing on that, though, is that I figure that any actual pirates in the area probably have market alts to deliver things to them from established market hubs, should the need arise.
I’m fully aware that I won’t be making as much as if I would just sell it in Jita and do the same old market grind that most people do, but I’m more interested in providing convenience to the local populace than anything else, and the ISK I get from selling these things is good enough as it is. I’m mostly concerned with if my stuff will even sell at all, and if people would want to even bother buying things from a low-security system.
Is it even worth it to attempt this? Or should I find somewhere more hi-sec to sell my stuff?
