Am I right in thinking that it's not worth buying Quality upgrades for products normally bought by countries like butter, military services, hospitals, high schools, etc?
If most countries buy at quality 100 because higher than that it's useless, I should not bother making my products better. But since quality raises prices, maybe it's still worth upgrading quality to get a better profit?

Try the options and do the math Sensoz, thats how you find things out generally. Higher Q products will sell even though the demand is for 100Q. There is a place for 100Q products when self trading and using common markets but unless you have a good grasp on how contracting works I would suggest you upgrade to the max for best profits for now.

You are right Sensoz. Avoid buying high quality products for your country (e.g. Butter) and try to sell high quality products from your corporations (e.g. Services, Construction, etc.) which is bought "by someone" on the world market.

If doing contracts, some products are useful at higher quality, but that is based on having a higher supply quality for your corporation supplies, whcih gives a "boost" to final produced quality of the product. The general idea is that 190 supply quality can give maximum product quality from all corporations. If you add upgrades, then the final quality would be even higher, and yes, you would get both a better price sold as well as have your products sell sooner (supposedly) on the world market. For the details of doing contracts, try talking with common markets or search the forum for more information, like "WildEyes' Leaving Guide to Everything" in the General forum area which generally explains it.
