I have been mining in an Orca for while in a Hi-Sec system, and have picked up a few locals in my regular fleets. I’ve now had to refit my Orca with 3 tractor beams to help keep up with all the jet cans, and I have recently shifted to buying the ore off my team of miners on the spot.
During the trial of the method, I just bought everything at estimated price - sort of like a new method promotion while I iron out the kinks.
Given that I am providing a service that:
-Increases mining throughput by 40%
-Keeps miner in belt
-saves effort on hauling
-instant buy off with no sales tax
-Security benefits (won’t mention publicly)
Is this a method that is regularly done? If so, what are the common purchase rates? If not, what sounds reasonable?
