FAQ

New Eden Item Finder is aimed towards traders in the game EVE Online. More specifically, NEIF lets them easily find profitable items based on their own parameters.
Create an account and start using the service right away.
Currently, while the service is still in beta, it is free to use. However, once we move forward with the project, membership will cost around 50 million ISK a month for most of the features. As it stands, adding custom stations to scrub data for will probably cost more, sorry!
We all need to make ISK somehow, this is my way. Besides, you'll earn more money from using the data you get here than you'll spend on it anyway.
Yup, once you add an API key to your account, you'll get seven days free.

Basically, it gives a third party access to certain information about your account and in-game activities. You'll be able to find more information about the on the official EVE Online API management page.

Nope, and the site will pretty much function in the exact same way with or without it. However, certain features will only work when you have put in a correct API key.
Pretty much, all we ask for is very limited permissions. We can see your publicly available information (your name, portrait, all that jazz), market orders, and wallet transactions. We use this to display some added information in the data lists.

The itemfinder will return a list of items that might be profitable - depending on your parameters - for station trading. "Buy low, sell high" in action.

Minimum Price
The item needs to cost at least this much on average
Maximum Price
The item cannot cost more than this on average
Minimum Volume
There need to be at least this many units of the item sold per day, on average
Minimum Orders
There need to be at least this many orders of this unit per day, on average
Delta Min/Avg
The delta min/avg is a value expressed in percent (%) that filters out items that are only ever traded through buy orders (for example, items that are bought in bulk for the pure purpose of reprocessing). The actual calculation is: delta min/avg * min > avg.
Delta Avg/Max
The delta max/avg is a value expressed in percent (%) that filters out items that are never sold to buy orders. The actual calculation is: delta avg/max * max < avg.
Minimum Profit
The minimum amount of ISK an item should make you, based on the current highest buy order and lowest sell order.
Any averages listed is over the course of the last 10 completed days.

The trade route finder will return a list of items that might be profitable - depending on your parameters - when moving items between any of the major trade hubs.

Minimum Price
The item needs to cost at least this much on average
Maximum Price
The item cannot cost more than this on average
Maximum Volume
How big an item can be in m3 to be shown in the list
Minimum Profit
The minimum amount of ISK an item should make you, based on the current highest buy order and lowest sell order.
Minimum Daily Volume
There need to be at least this many units of the item sold per day, on average
Use Buy Orders
When checked, compare the prices of the highest buy order versus the lowest sell order. When not checked, only the lowest sell orders in the differant hubs will be taken into account.
The single route will only show data based on your source and destination hub, the five-way comparison will show data from the viewpoint of your source hub. Basically, it'd be a personal preference which one you'd use. Am looking for more feedback on this though, so I'd love to hear from you guys
