The first rank allows you to gain 10 percent more when selling a product. For example, those who try to sell the Shocktroop Spacesuit with the perk will acquire 1,328 credits, differing from the initial value of 1,207. The more you rank up in your skill, the better prices you’ll receive, with a maximum of 25 percent profit increase through Rank 4. If you aren’t sure how to achieve these ranks, you can check out our All Skill Challenges guide to learn more about it.

On the other hand, those who want to buy back an item with the same amount they used to sell it must not exit the transaction, or else they may trigger a higher price afterward. You can easily find these products in the ‘Buy Back’ section of the Vendor’s Buy menu as long as you remain on the page.
