I know that the number of items they can sell are limited to 17 but I was going to set my Alpha to put up sale orders, ive done the broker relations skill but am unable to do the accounting skill. currently my sales/brokers fees sit at a eye watering 9.4%.
As I have all the skills I can have on an Alpha I would need to rely on getting corp and faction standings up in order to reduce the % further. Looking at this the only way i can reduce the 5% sales tax is to train accounting (which I cannot do on alpha) or I can reduce brokers fee down to 3% but that still means ill have to pay 8% tax.
That hardly seems worth going through the grind of getting those standings up, is there any other way on an alpha account to reduce those fees (without having to sell from a citadel?).
Or if I bought a months Omega on an alpha and trained the accounting and other trade related skills, would I “keep” some of those skills when I reverted to alpha (I seem to recall reading that you can use up to 20m SP on an alpha (but can only train up to 5m without buying some kind of time.
