Generally no, selling on contract wont help, but now with no advantage to trade strategies, that is you cant ask for a mark up, then it may well be a thing to do. But really the onlt reason to do that as a basic player is to ensure supply.
What quality supply are you asking for? make sure you arent asking for 'any' quality, ask for like 160 or 170. Any quality will cost you a lot, lot lot lot. And have your corps quality upgrading until the max 200 for state corps.
And when selling it doesnt seem to pay at the moment to ask for anything more than best price.
Note, these things are not available for you to change for the first 2 weeks of playing, after that you change as you like. But the standard settings for new players should be good enough for a start, dont stray too far from them until you understand a bit of what you are doing.
If you need more specific help then please post again but you need to be a lot more specific when asking questions.

Overall, is it better to have a mark up of products, market retail, or just get them to fly off the shelf like a big box store?

The market mechanics of the game are changing long term at the moment. Any mark-up of products doesn't really help, in fact it will probably prevent sale of product so you make losses. It's based on why would someone buy very high quality stuff without seeing a lot of benefit for it. Maybe good for weapons and ammo but otherwise not. There are advanced methods of using it you will find later on.
So, as the gamesmaster recommends, get 'em to fly of the shelves, turnonver being the key. Upgrade them, make high-ish goods (250 - 290 maybe, my settings) by adjusting the supply quality (180 ish) and sell it all every month at best price.
Unless of course Mr. Madoff would like to correct me and tell us the right way to do it?

Awesome, thank you. I'll make the adjustments and see what happens.
