Re-listing vs Order Expiry

Where given the choice it is better to re-list rather than let an order expire.

The Reasoning

I put all my Sell Orders on with 3 months to expiry which is the maximum allowed.

That said, there will be some that run the risk of not being sold in that time.

If they expire it will cost be 1.5% of the Sell Order price to list them again.

If, on the other hand, or change the price that will only cost me 0.3% of the Sell Order price and the time to expiry will be reset to 3 months.

Therefore, once a week i check on how many orders have less than 10 days before they expire and drop their price by a tick.

The mechanics

On the Market screen, top right corner is "Market Orders"

This will list all the orders for sale i have in that station and one of the columns will show time to expiry.  Sort by this column:

and then for those of 10 days or less i double click on and adjust the price to reset the expiry time to 3 months.
