Honestly.. if you have the Companion App for your phone the fastest way to earn money is to use that and send out your fleet. That's how I did it. and every time I went back to play the game the missions would be done! other than that you could try going for royal convoys and attacking other ships!

Hunting goods like whale and great white sharks ar worth a decent amount at stores, as are the predators on land.

kenway's fleet missions, and selling rum/sugar.

i actually wish they would bring back buying shops/banks/landmarks to generate a consistent cash flow...

Go to the bottom parts of the man, specifically near Serranilla, engage and demast every Man o War/Frigate you see for the next few hours, sell all the stuff you don't need(especially rum and sugar)

Kenway's fleet and selling Sugar and Rum. Kenway's fleet may take a lot of time, but they bring back a lot of money up to like 36K if you like high paying missions.

If you know a certain glitch for warehouses, you can make 10k/500-700 rum and sugar in 10 minutes.

What's the glitch for warehouses?
Also, if I go on a plunder ship spree, should I take my time to board on each ship? or to just destroy them completely and take the leftover goods? because boarding ships consumes lots of time.

I recommend doing assassination contracts and actually collecting treasures. I replayed the story mode and I collected all treasures in Havana I had over 12000r

12k R is nothing.

One thing: If you're ever having problems with money in AC, you're definitely doing something wrong! If making big money would be that easy in real life... $_$
:p

Fastest way i've figured out how to make dough is to go after Convoys, so far, they've carried between 2000R and 3000R (but can carry up to 5000R), there was that one Royal Convoy (blue on map) that had 10,000R, but besides that, going after mid and high level Men O Wars which usually have between 1000R and and 1500R is also a good technique, as is completing Assassination contracts and high-level warehouse raids.

But by far the fastest way is to sell Cargo, specifically sugar.

It's generally better to board and take the ships, as sinking them outright only gives you 50% of their cargo, you also get the opportunity to repair the jackdaw if you need to (sinking the ship in the process) or sending it to the fleet (i can't seem to work my head around the feet system), or get rid of your wanted level, unless you like having brigs and man o wars chasing you :P

What is over 12k? even 30k is nothing. to get everything in the game you need like 300k.

I'm trying to say that this is only from the beginning of the game sheesh
If you actually collect all the treasure then you can get up to 100k r
And I'm just trying to help

Sorry if I sounded like I'm bashing at you, I'm not, was just saying, I do collect everything, I'm always doing 100% of the AC games, I'm just trying to find a faster method.

So recommend doing the legendary ships what I meant by that is that I got 12k-70k from collecting most of chests alone the thing is that once you get all that you could upgradethe jackdaw then I took out the legendary ships

Quickest way I found is to level up your ships hull and hard shot (is hard shot the fire one?) and go after warships with like 150 rum or 150 sugar, it doesn't be long piling up.
