I have all my corp that can sell for maximum red bar on market. Selling setting is time based and follow quality product. But I don't understand this
Famagora Missile Interceptors
Produced Quality: 225
This corp still maked small profit (others too) and I put every month +20 to start selling % price but it has no effect. The production is every month sold very fast. I think I do something bad.
Or is my start selling price still low?

Ok .... that strategy not working... It's make no effect.
Market price: 528,630 SC$
Quality to sell: 220
But requested price is still at 1.16M
But I set to 249% so it must be more. It's not.
What is the point of the game if main important feature not working?

It is working. Problem is; you are ordering upgrades, which make it more profitable. If the corp sells a lot of products, it's not gonna give it all to you. It's gonna order 2-3 months of supplies and write it off as a business expense. That's why CEOs are always picky about welfare. They pay several taxes that count as a business expense and receive the same profit, but the country receives more from CEO controlled than state.
CEOs want a productive populace that makes the best out of the salaries and is efficient. Their corporations buy(and rumored to) consume less and produce more.
Your state corps aren't a mass commonwealth with you as the focal point. Switch to a common market with a player who doesn't care about profits (like me) who will contract stuff to you at market price to reduce costs. Plus, you can get much higher qua from them. I sell qua 308 to my common market fellows at market price and risk making close to no profit. In the end, I get lots of happy letters and in return, me fellow Union members do the same for me. We all help each-other and make substantial profits to the point where I'm picky about the strategic bombs I buy for no reason.
Common markets with greedy members are useless. They'll pay the minimum, and go for max profits. Markets like The Union's market have members that wanna benefit each-other at the expense of possible profit, leading to actually get us far more than that of the greedy common markets. We communicate a lot, make backroom arms deals, and heck, I'm even producing cargo shuttles for my fellow market members. Do you have fun watching your numbers grow, or your friends? Karma exists in this game.

Ok so somebody buying from me 225% product for 381% price in 5 minutes? I don't belive it.
I set now time based with follow quality.
20% above and reduce 5% every month.
May it be better or worst? I must test it.
Btw. I don't buy upgrades now. I have 200.

When I see price for what it's offer ... and calculate it ... It's market price with considering quality of product but NOT +% I added in setting so ... Ah I don't understand it.
I try that strategy I post before. Maybe then it will be not selling for dumping prices.
Btw. I read on forum that trade prices don't work as protection of game economy and it's always sell for actual price * quality.

Ok ... I think I understand you... I watch it and I must say if the selling strategies really works my corps invest they profit to making huge storage of materials they needed. Some of them have some materials for 35 months so

For now I know where is the profit but still as is discribed on other topics. Selling prices are not functional

FB ... I experimenting with settings for now ... It looks like the prices strategies not working. When I read forum half of players telling that work and they use 30/5 time based and half telling it's not working and it's the same as best price because the developer don't want free market.
Did it work for you?
I am premium but only couple of days old player. Maybe it's disabled for new players?
