I reciently wanted to upgrade to a better class of ship.. (Dont we all) Smile

I am flying Mintar frigates, and did not have enough to buy a destroyer and outfit it too, (they were selling for 1.25M-1.5M in my area.

So I entered a Buy order for a ship and put the price at 800K (there were buy orders in already for 600K in my area) It was entered and the money deducted from my account, and placed in escrow.

But I forgot to adjust the time so the order was only going to last 1 day. Sad Ok not a problem, if its not filled, I can just re-make it.


Ooops, next day, when I loged on and looked, the order is not listed, there is no transaction showing it was filled, and the 800K is gone. Surprised

IS this the way its supposed to be? If an order is NOT filled and the time runs out, the cash to cover the purchases (placed in escrow) is gone??? Evil or Very Mad

No.

After downtime the money will flow back into your wallet.

And if it had been a sell order the items would only show up after downtime.

Very HappyBtw, unless you have good Trade skills, your buy order will be Station-Only; also, most buy orders you see are by people trying to get things too cheap and therefore don`t give a good indication of prices.
I suggest you try a different region and check for prices there, sometimes Destroyers sell for 950k-1mill, but rarely lower.Neutral

Just to follow up. Yes ,after the next down time, the money was returned. (Showed up as Market Escrow Release?? or something like that) So that was a relief. :) at the time, that was 3/4s of my cash. I thought it was gone.

Ok, I will try cruising to several regions to price check destroyers.

Thanks,
