PLEX is an in-game item that can be traded for ISK and to pay for Omega Clone state game time and character services. You can trade PLEX on the regional market directly from the PLEX Vault, or by transferring it to your inventory. PLEX are quite versatile items. They can be used to: Purchase or gift items in the New Eden Store, such as: Game Time; Multi Character Training Certificates; SKINs and apparel for a character; Sell it in the in-game market for ISK. PLEX can be purchased directly from the Account Management pages or from a number of resellers as 'PLEX Activation.
|The PLEX Vault is a separate inventory that only you have access to. It allows for safe storage of PLEX while moving as well as facilitating selling PLEX, adding Omega game time (plexing your account), Multiple Character Training (MCT) as well as buying PLEX.|

Safe storage of PLEX
Items in the PLEX vault will not drop or be destroyed if someone kills your ship and pods you, so it's a safe way to move your PLEX.
Since you need to have your PLEX in the PLEX vault to use it or sell it (it won't let you sell PLEX if it's in your hangar or cargo hold), there's no reason to take it out of the vault unless you're planning on giving it away to someone through direct trade or contracts.
Adding physical PLEX into the vault
If you've purchased PLEX from the market or received a physical bundle of PLEX from someone, you can add it to the PLEX vault locally as well as remotely.
This is an example of right-clicking on an item in your hangar.
You can also go through your Personal Assets (either using the Alt + T shortcut or the NeoCom menu).
|There is currently a bug in the Move to PLEX Vault when you try to move PLEX from an Upwell structure like a Citadel or Engineering Complex you don't have access to. This option is still there, but does absolutely nothing and gives no error message about it being intentional due to lack of access.|
PLEX vault services
In the PLEX vault window you have quick access to selling PLEX directly on the market, adding Omega game time, buying extra skill queues, shop in the New Eden Store as well as buying PLEX using real money. To open the PLEX vault, go to your unified inventory (either from your shortcut Alt + C or the NeoCom), it's located at the very bottom of the index-list.
Sell PLEX for ISK
This option will simply open a normal Sell Items window. It won't open the market window however, so you might want to do that manually before selling the PLEX, so you can see the current prices and trends before setting your own price.
