If there is a marketplace order for a container, is it acceptable to claim it and fill it with container made with a different discipline, such as substituting a 20-slot bag for a 20-slot box? I am assuming the FVC cost and contribution points are the same, I have not checked.

Yes I have done that myself. Because our market is recipe driven there is no way to request a generic 20 space "container" and I see no reason someone would be partial to cloth, metal or leather. People can only choose a container from a specific crafting discipline. You cna always claim the work order, and then email the person to verify what you intend to supply is adequate before filling it :)

The containers in fact do not have the same credit "cost" because the contribution requirement is created based on the items used to craft it. Not all base materials have the same contribution value. Also I would be sure to ask the person ahead of time because some people may wish for a certain one for rp or consistency reasons.

The metal boxes were a bit higher points wise last I checked. I have had people contact me in the game and ask if I minded some other kind of bag and I was always happy to get whatever kind they could make. Last time I ordered a couple bags I mentioned that any type of bag would be OK in the comments.

The Boxes require more material than the bags. Thats why their different. The source mats cost the same but theres more of them used to make the boxes.

Some people care, some don't. I think the last thread on this topic boiled down to "ask the buyer before you craft". Personally, when I submit bag orders, I put "Any XX slot OK" in the buyer's note, so anyone can see it.

I fill the bag to the exact name. I have different bag types that have a priority in what items fill them: ie craftsman bag collect all my material components first, equipment boxes collect weapons and armor... I am not sure if anyone else uses that method, but if they do then it would matter.
