  • It's been a while since I played, but I seem to recall your standing with them being the major factor. The system level might also factor in. – Pvt. Grichmann Dec 6 '13 at 13:45

The barter rates are affected by your local faction reputation which you can confirm easily yourself by checking prices before and after a bribe and by the perks from your currently used specialists.

The Specialist perks which affect trading are:

  • Diplomat: Warpgate bribe discount

  • Slaver: Goon trade discount

  • Mediator: Relation improve discount

  • Negotiator: Blue print discount
