The way i see it, I would give you a tip for... you know, being cool and keeping an eye on your companions, and for taking the time to research the eschematic if that is the case.

Marketing here is very simple: if you have no costs for making the item (I provide all mats), the only think you can charge for is providing the service.
The effort, time, and credits invested (by you) in being able to provide that service is something you should be looking to get back by adding all profits obtained in the long run. Not for every time you provide the service.

Your system, as a customer, seems highly unacceptable to me. All due respect.

Sorry, my economics English is very poor, hope I explained myself
Clearly, you don't understand the concept of "opportunity cost".

I can either use my companion to earn credits for myself, or I can use my companion to process the stack of materials you have provided. For example, if my companion can potentially earn me 30K profit per hour (from crafting or missions), why should my "service fee" to you be less than 30K per hour ?

The fact that you have provided a stack of materials is entirely irrelevant to the fact that I can earn 30K per hour from using my companion for personal gain.
