Most factions have a website or contact person listed from the faction page. Try this:

The rules page only lists the cost of materials. The factions will sell the ships (or whatever) for a cost they think they can get and it will be much more than the materials cost usually.

Yes - that cost on the rules pages refers to the server cost of the RMs needed. In most cases, with costs for prospecting, mining etc, RMs will cost twice that. Then there are construction costs on top of that. Then there is pure old greed and inflation that increase the price yet again. Generally, the producers have the lowest prices around - everyone else generally tries to get a profit above that again.

well it still doesnt make since that they would sell it for more than 20 times the material price and they are the producers

Its inflation. More credits are hanging around the galaxy thanks to tax and facility income, so people can afford the higher prices.

Actually, it does make sense. Material price for a product make up a maximum of 50% in real life. The producer then has to add production costs (machines, infrastructure, salaries), development costs etc. Add, that the rules page raw material price is only that (mining the materials is actually more expensive) and you should see that a 20x factor on the final sale price not that unrealistic.

If you think that's wrong, you can always create a shipproducing faction and sell your products at the (clearly stated) rules page raw material price.
