Missions should not be the only Way to increase Standings. I Beleive That A Small Standings increase from Placing Orders Via Brokerage s Well as Paying Tax, Would Help Not just the economy, but also Allow Traders Bypass missions to trade and haul While still Getting Counted as a part of the NPC corperation and Factions Good Side. Going Pew Pew for Agents should not be the only way to get a standings gain.
As a Trader I Would Rather Stick to Trading and hauling Player Made Goods. Not Doing missions that keep me away from helping the Economy by putting my isk to the value of the items on the market. So my Standings Suffer and i end up paying rather high Fee's and have no way to grow my competitive edge. And when i have less Fee's due to higher standings i make more isk to keep buying more goods from players.

However. I am Also Wanting to Propose a Anti Exploitation Factor to include into this. Any Market Manipulations That Result in False pricing Via Buying your own Goods in an attempt to Create a False Price on an item, Should Result in a Small Standings Decrease. As Falseifying the Market is a "Bad" thing.

I would agree that some sort of standings for traders would be in order. However I don't think adjusting the standings just from normal trade activity is the way to go.

Perhaps, with changes in smuggling coming there can be some sort of thing that brokers "want" that is less than legal. Something that can moved from region to region. "Insider trading data" if there needs to be an RP reason for it.

You can Incarna your way to some broker agent, but some data sheets, and then move them to another region and give them to another some other broker and gain some standings with that NPC corp.

This way there is some time effort and risk involved, above and beyond just doing what you'd do anyway.

Agreed. There should me a way, but standings for orders isn't it.

Standings for distribution missions or trade missions should suffice no? I mean, they are trade missions afterall.
Though personally, I would like to see the mission isk rewards for trade missions to be higher, I mean, you have to pay for the items, so they should take into account that you are just earning a thin spread.
