When you join a corporation that is part of the LinkNet community you will get the permission to use our buyback system. This means that you will always be paid according to the current market prices for the items that you are selling to us.
You can sell all types of items not just ore at almost all valid buyback locations.
While random items have a higher tax rate it is most often more time efficient to sell them to buyback compared to spending the time to haul them to the market yourself.
There are several benefits that you will receive by using the LinkNet buyback system. Not only will it make sure that you are paid enough for your items, it also saves you a huge amount of valuable time as you do not need to move your assets to any hubs to be sold. All the prices we use are coming right from the largest trade hub in EVE: Jita 4-4, which means when you sell items via the system it is like selling your items in Jita. The system is designed to:
The tax in the buyback is what covers most of the community activities. As we have very little taxation on our community we heavily rely on the tax from buyback to support our activities and to expand our services.
Items are sold to the buyback programs via contracts. The buyback calculator will calculate a buyback price for the items you wish to sell to the program. Using contracts will ensure that you will get your money in exchange for the items.
The buyback program can be found at: https://auth.eve-linknet.com/buybackprogram/
Contracts are only accepted at the exact stations listed as valid buyback locations. Use the correct program related to the station which you wish to sell at.
Most buybacks do not accept unpacked items.
Highlight all the items you want to sell to use and press Ctrl – C (it will copy all the ores on your clipboard).
Select a buyback program you wish to use by pressing on the
use buttom next to the programs name. Paste the items to the items field by pressing Ctrl – V. Select if you want to donate a portion of the contract value to the program.
Press Calculate to calculate the prices for your items.
Once calculated you will be able to see the details for each item you are selling. Some items may get their prices calculated based on some refining rules and the best price is selected based on the rules applied at your current location. You can check the notes for each item if they have special taxations or errors on them.
After you have calcualted a price for your items you can see the settings you should use on top of the calculations page under the
Contract settings section.

Once the contract has been created all you need to do is wait for the money to pop in your wallet. Contracts will be accepted as soon as possible.
