To be fair, roughly 25% of accounts are paid for by GTC/PLEX. Out of those, say half would not exist if this GTC/PLEX didn't exist as an option. Out of (now probably) around 350k accounts, that's 43k accounts that wouldn't exist. The actual money going into CCP is most likely less than 15$/month from GTC/PLEX fueled accounts thanks to the retailer's cut and VAT for EU purchases. Times number of possible extra accounts due to that, that's well over half a mil USD per month extra.
So, yeah, it was good business sense to allow it.

just hold out and dont sell cheaply.some one will buy it sooner or later at the price you want.......ya have to rember though one reason prices droped is cause isk sellers are buying them up and selling cheaper that normal players driving the price down-wich inturns allows them to raise prices of buying straight isk from them aslong as they dont go over the gtc prices by to much

Ok whoever says CCP doesn't make money off GTC's is ******ed. Do math:

person a buys 3 gtc's at $35 each, sells two to two other players for isk, they STILL made money off of 3 subscriptions, regardeless of WHO the subscriptions go to.

They are making alot more by having customers who have the money to pay for gtc's and plex's sell them to people who don't.

2+2 =/= fish, go take high school math again morons, and you'll realize that this was a brilliant move on CCP's part that is making them loads

By that same logic, I should put up sell orders for Tritanium at 1 million a piece, since "some one will buy it sooner or later"...

Right.
Because LOSING ISK doing this without the guarantee of a later sale makes oh so much sense.
I mean, more sense than simply selling ISK cheaper directly.
