Yes, add checkboxes for corp only / alliance only when placing market orders.

This. I would think everyone in every high-sec corp and beyond could find tons of use for this. Everyone in my corp could. Actually not sure why this hasn't BEEN in the game. Our CEO and industrialists often remark on how much easier their jobs would be if they could just setup corp/alliance only buy/sell orders. Do it, lol

Imo your sale orders would take forever . Its also no difference than all those ships sitting in your inventory not charging you taxes for posting it to market

haha. Right... If you think a corp hanger full of ships is no different than a placing them in the market. You have not been playing EVE long enough. Also, don't care about taxes. I don't expect a market to be untaxed.

Corp/Alliance contracts expire in 2 weeks. They also don't allow the buyer the option of a partial quanity of what is avaliable.
Evemail and chat for trade can not be done while offline. The market is always running.

Corp Hanger = Consider your inventory stolen as soon as you put it in there; and hope that doesn't happen.

But what about the regional markets? The regional markets will be fine. Adding this feature will likley do nothing more than cause an isk sink and make those who supply their own corp/alliances very happy.

It would allow Corps/Alliances to provide goods to their members at a lower cost than to the public.

When i first started playing I was a member of an industrial ship building corp. The hassle of selling your ore to the corp and buying ships from the corp at lower prices was a right PITA.

Fully support this idea!

i don't know how useful this'd be, but surely an additional tool available for corps to work together can't be a bad thing?

This, more or less. If you want to sell something to your corporation/alliance, put up a contract. All the major nullsec alliances do this all the time, so feel free to take advantage of the functionality yourself.

anytime you feel it's more appropriate to use market instead of contracts for a public sale is the same situation you'd want a 'corp' market instead of corp contracts when selling to corp vOv

Plain a Simple: A Corp/Alliance Contract != Corp /Alliance Market. Add the check box.
Please.

Very helpful for npc null and low sec groups that want to set up a cheap market for allies but don't want hostiles buying it.
I am not saying it is a good idea or that i would support it but i know my alliance would benefit greatly.

Money at its root is a form of rationing. When the richest 85 people have as much wealth as the poorest 3.5 billion (50% of humanity) it is clear where the source of poverty is. http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/jan/20/trickle-down-economics-broken-promise-richest-85

+1 from me. But not only ability to restrict it to corpmates, ability to restrict orders to "blues", or ban "reds" and "neuts" from using it would help too.

This sounds like a pretty useful quality-of-life improvement. Adding it to my list of issues.

Keep in mind that even a good idea is just one of many in a long list of good ideas all fighting for the same resources. Also keep in mind that some great ideas are held back by things like ancient code that needs to get looked at before it's even possible. Will get back once I get some feedback on this.

I'd like to be able to set prices as a variable based on corp/alliance membership or even standings.

Example 1: Corp/alliance price
Selling 1 unit of something
Public Price: 100
Alliance Price: 95
Corp Price: 90

Example 2: Standings-based price
Selling 1 unit
Price at 10: 90
Price at 0: 100
(Price is interpolated using those 2 set points).
