I have an interesting problem I need help with. I bought some items from station "a" and want to sell it to station "b", one jump away. Skills in trade and marketing are both at 3 so I should be able to sell to them but first station "b" is not green HOWEVER station "x", 5 jumps away, is green. Both stations are in the same region, both station "a" and station "b" are not in the same constellation, but station "x" is (stations "a" and "x"). Why am I unable to sell to a different constellation with marketing and trade at lvl 3? Station "b" is closer than station "x".

Also I was wondering why "jumps" is different from "range". IE: Station "b" is range:Station, and station "x" is range: 20 jumps

Your skill has no effect on the buy order itself because they're not your buy order.

The person who put up the buy order can determine the range of the order. For station b, it appears that the buy range is limited to station or system only.

For station x, it appears that the buy range is limited to 5 jumps.

If you see green buy orders, it means you can sell it to those orders. If the order is not green, you cannot sell it to those buy order.

"jumps" is how far the station is where the order is located.
"range" is how far way items being sold may be from the station where the order is located.

"range" has to be equal to or larger than "jumps", else you cannot sell to that order.

The skills you mention apply to orders you place, not to orders other have placed.
Also, there is no way to magically transport items using skills. Items at station A will stay at station A, even if they are sold to an order (with proper range) in station B.

The "Range" is how far away you can be from an order, and sell your items to that order. So range: station means you must be at the station to sell your item there. Range:20 jumps means that you can be anywhere within 20 jumps away and sell to that order.
So the problem is not the different constellation, it's the range.
Hope that helped.

Edit: Beaten to it, twice
