Once I was looking for a new outfit for one of my comapnions back in the days when you had to equip them with proper gear, too. As buying armor off the GTN was always a question of credits, the cheapest way to go was to get adaptive armor. At that time, the only adaptive armor available was the one from the cartel market. I never bought any of the hypercrates or complete armor sets where you had to use cartel coins. I saved up some credits and got the items that I wanted from the GTN. As some of them were pretty rare on the one hand, on the other there also was an oversupply of items flooding the market.
Take the above Rotworm Practice Jersey as an example. It came along with almost every Freelancer’s Bounty Pack (2012) that the price on the GTN dropped to 500 credits or less per piece. I checked daily for the newly offered jerseys and bought all of them that were below 1.000 credits. In total I got approximately 50 of them along with the Frogdog Practice Jersey. I have invested approximately 40.000 credits on the Rotworm Jerseys.
The next thing that you will have to do is wait! Be patient and wait for the right time to sell the items. In this particular case it took almost 4 years, but it was totally worth it. The price nowadays went up from 500 credits to over 50.000 (10.000% profit). I once sold a jersey for 250.000 credits (50.000% profit) 😀
So, try to check for items that could be in high demand in the future and store them somewhere in your cargo hold. If you do this continuously, you can sell different items stored at different times step-by-step on the GTN and make a lot of profit!
