So I pay premium for ability to use sell time based strategy and get advantage of it. But it's not working for me. It's still selling for market price * quality. I have set 30/5 but it has no effect. I study the problem a lot and discover that some playes saying that works 14 days after creation of nation ... some saying that works in past but now it's not working and some saying it's working normally. My nation is older than 14 days (I receive 2x 3GC for weekly login). I played in past and I am sure it's work.
If it will be working I stay and pay another money for my country(s) and enterprise. If not I leave. I know it's not your problem but it looks like I pay for nothing.
Bad ... because this game is awesome and I want to play it.
I contact GM and ask him if selling strategies work but he answer me (thanks for it) but not to question what I asking. He answer me more then 30/5 will nobody buy... I don't ask if somebody will buy it ... I ask if it's WORK!!!
Selling strategies working:
YES: After xxx days and what to set to made it works.
Thanks and have a nice day.

You cant sell anything above marketprice with trading strategies as they are right now, anything else works as it should afaik.
The only thing that works is if you want to sell Products with less then 200 Quality you can sell them at Quality 200 Price manually, thats the only way to sell above marketprice right now.
But any other way: You cant sell above marketprice, period.

the way to do this is probably, to find someone who wants to purchase at that price.
when you sell, there is a buyer. If there is no buyer at that price, the transaction will not occur.
you can offer a product of Q200 at 230. we see this taking place, but usually, nobody wants to purchase Q200 at 230.
most purchases are at market price. This is the current price multiplied by the quality. not anything higher than the quality.

sell strategy of time base is off market price, so why would people buy higher than market price?
for example, the market price for say a strategic bomb is $13.90B at Q100 yet because there are no market for this product so my country is buying from my corp at about $24B. but keep in mind that i can only produce one bomb per year at a running cost of about $2B per month. in 12 months, that would be $24B in production cost, yet my country is paying about $24B for this bomb, higher than the market price because it is about Q160. at the end of the day, i'm equal for this product, because i'm just exchanging one asset for another asset, which is just reducing my cash of the country. so why should my country pay $24B for this product if it can buy from someone else for $13.90B, because what is the different between a Q100 and Q160 for this product?
i have been advocating that sell strategy needs to be base off cost of production, not market price. if i'm super efficient and productive that it only cost me $5B to produce this bomb, then selling at the market price of $13.90B would make me a good profit. but if i'm so bad in the production of this product that my production cost is $24B, then i will make a loss on this product selling at the market price of $13.90B.
if supply and demand are the determinates of prices for products in sc, how can we base our prices on top of a market price which should be constantly moving?

and if your product has a higher quality than 100Q which the market price should be base off, then sure you are entitle to get a higher price of market price x Q%
but Q is confusing the whole concept of many products. there is no 100Q electricity and 200Q electricity, if there are then can my 200Q electricity gives me twice the output of the 100Q or that i would only need to use half of the quantity if i use 200Q electricity?
