You can pay it in advance. FC has a "bank" of sorts, where you transfer however much money you want. You can then reserve certain % of that amount to cover the upkeep cost and anything that requires withdrawal of funds (i.e. when another players sells you something via your market), the reserved amount is not touched.Hello. I am new to these Fleet Carries. I just arrived at Alcor, where apparently I can buy one today for $1 Million credits. No problem there, but how much IS the "upkeep" charge, when do have to pay it, can you pay in advance?? I like the idea of having my own station I can take anywhere, along with all my stuff, but not if I am in for a grind just to keep and use it? Thanks!
Also, any transactions you will try to set up (like a Buy order) will take that reserve into consideration and won't allow you to set up an order that would spend more than only unreserved amount of money.
