Is there a standardization of taxes at NPC stations? Like 5% at 1.0 security, 5.3% at 0.9, 5.9% at 0.7? Or do I have to manually check taxes at all locations. I just want to know the “break even” point (of course, any haulers are going to need a profit not break even, but knowing that point is a good start)
I figure if what I want to buy isn’t within 3 jumps, placing a local order at a 12.5% premium is worth it if someone delievers. Of course they hauler isn’t going to make a 12.5% profit becuase of the texes, but it would help to knwo for future reference.
I’ve been successfully selling some ore. The odd thing is that Pyroxeres and Solid Pyroxes is selling at 30% of it’s Jita vlaue, so I’m going to have to haul some out myself, but Scordite and its better varients are selling well. Veldspar i’ve been selling for 93% of normal prices, but oddly Dense Veldspar is only 7/8 the price of Veldspar in the station. So for Dense Veldspar, Pyroxeres, and Solid Pyroxes, I’ve been sotring them and planing to jump 7 systems where they’re being sold at reasonable prices (still less than Jita).
My main problem isn’t “what to do with these ores” but “I’m going to have to stop mining and go buy this stuff myself aren’t it?”
But aside from the immediate problem of “no one wants to sell the stuff I want here” I do want to know the mechanics of the taxes and the break even point becuase it would be useful in the future.
I don’t know if anyone checks regional buy orders, but if people only check station buy orders, I think a 290000% premium would do nothing since pretty much everyone here is a miner. There are other systems in the region with higher trade volume, but not in the station.
Thanks for the help. Total transaction taxes wasn’t quite what I wanted to know though. I wanted to know what would be a break even point if someone with max skills bought an item sold for 1 million ISK and then sold it for X, with X being the break even point. Both starting and ending stations are NPC ones.
I suppose I’ll divide what I wanted to know into two catagories: the break even point current tax rates, and the “stable” ones since I didn’t know we had a holiday.
