I'm failing miserably at pricing my goods --

Simcountry: Simcountry Bulletin Board  I'm failing miserably at pricing my goods --

at some time, I read a bulletin message that said we should price our products at the quality level plus 100%...ummmm, it's not working for me. In fact i'm having trouble selling anything and I have a lot of red lined products.

What is, in your opinion, the best way to price goods? Need lots of help since I think i'm going to be going under if i can't start selling stuff price wasn't even working. Starting to get paranoid :)

try product quality -100

a normal product with quality upgrades has 100: so you start selling at 0% above market price.
at maximum you have a product quality of 260, so you sell the product at 150% above market price. Works fine for me, but I don't really know if it's the best way.

Thank you -- I know this isn't rocket science, but it's beginning to feel like it -:)- each strat I've tried so far is leaving me with tons left over.

So, Gumbria, if I understand what you're suggesting -- since most of my companies are 130 to 150 quality ATM, for a company with 130 product quality, I should set the "above market price" to 30? (FYI, the 130 above is what got me into trouble in the first place :) ... all my service companies, for example, are bleeding to death.

Many thanks for offering your suggestion...always looking to learn more ;)

Its almost impossable for service companys not to turn over their output with the huge shortarge of services. My service companys reguarly sell their product at MV+150% and some of their output is as low as 140 quality.
I don't see why yours wouldn't be able to do the same...

If the demand is there then they should sell at any price, especially to countries.

If a country cannot buy what it needs at "best price" it'll buy them on an immediate order and that's when you can sell at highest prices.
