This article serves to provide an in-depth overview of rules and guidelines for marketeers active in markets in Brave Collective space. This article does not apply to any NPC markets, or markets to which the alliance as a whole does not have access to. If you regularly sell items on the market, either through production, importing, or otherwise, please be familiar with the contents of this page.

There are no set minimum or maximum price rules for listing items on the market. With the exception of situations that rise to the level of scamming we do not enforce any sort of limitations on how you price your orders provided you follow the rest of the rules on this page.

If you are unsure on what price to set, keep the following considerations in mind:

  • Exceptionally high prices are unfavorable to your alliance-mates, and will likely discourage people from buying those items or result in you being significantly undercut.
  • Exceptionally low prices can discourage competition and reduce availability of the items in question.
  • Feel free to add a margin for your time and effort, so that the building or importing of the item(s) you're listing is worth your while.

The practice of buying up items and re-listing them for a higher price on the same market is Strictly Forbidden. This serves no benefit to the alliance or its members and only drives the prices of items up. This rule refers to action taken in Brave and allied stations via the 'Regional Market' window, and is directed specifically towards clearing market orders of the available stock and relisting them at higher prices. Contracts, firesales, trades, or any other private arrangements between individuals are, generally speaking, not covered by this rule. As such, it is strongly advised that you exercise discretion when dealing privately with anyone.

If you believe someone is relisting items in the manner described above, send a report to Brave HR via the Brave Collective Ping Board along with any evidence you have and it will be dealt with swiftly and appropriately.

The alliance requires various items to operate on a day-to-day basis. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Doctrine Ships
  • Doctrine Fittings
  • Ammunition
  • Fuel

To the best of your ability, we request that these items be made available on the market at an affordable price, in order to facilitate strategic operations.

The above rules and guidelines extend to all allied markets. Please refrain from abusing nearby friendly market hubs. Markets from other alliances serve similar purposes to ours, and as such please respect this when engaging in market activities there.
