The Trading Post in New World operates as the central hub for all player transactions, essentially functioning as the game’s marketplace. Unlike other games, New World doesn’t have NPC vendors, so all buying and selling activities are conducted between players, making the Trading Post an integral part of the game’s economy.

How to List Items For Selling

  1. Locate a Trading Post in any settlement; they’re typically found in the town center.
  2. Approach and interact with it to open the trading interface.
  3. Navigate to the “Sell” tab on the top of the screen.
  4. Your inventory will appear, allowing you to select the items you wish to sell. Click on an item, and you’ll be prompted to set a price and the duration for which the listing will be active.
  5. Confirm the details, and your item will be listed on the Trading Post. It’s now available for others to purchase in that specific settlement’s Trading Post.

Fees and Taxes

There’s a fee for listing an item, calculated as a percentage of the item’s price. This is paid upfront. Additionally, when an item sells, a transaction tax is deducted from the sale price. The rate is determined by the controlling company of the territory. Remember, fees and taxes can vary significantly between different territories, depending on the controlling company’s tax settings.

Pricing Your Items

  • Setting the right price is crucial. Too high, and your item might never sell; too low, and you might lose potential profits.
  • Consider checking the average sale price of similar items to gauge the market.
  • Keep an eye on the market trends. Prices can fluctuate based on various factors like demand, availability, or even in-game events.

The Trading Post is not just a place to earn coin; it’s a reflection of New World’s living economy, driven by its players. Understanding how to effectively use the Trading Post can significantly enhance your experience and ensure your financial stability in the game.

Things To Know About Selling Items In New World

Selling items in New World isn’t just about listing them on the Trading Post; it’s about understanding the market dynamics and using strategies to ensure your items sell quickly and at the best possible price. Here are some tips to keep in mind:

Know the Market Demand

Certain items are constantly in high demand: resources for crafting, consumables like food and potions, and popular gear. Keep an eye on what’s trending and try to sell these items for quick profits.

New patches or updates can shift player needs drastically. Stay informed about game changes as new items or crafting recipes can spike demand for specific resources overnight.

Location Matters

The Trading Post is local to each settlement. An item listed in one settlement’s Trading Post won’t be available in another’s. This means you can leverage supply and demand disparities between different locations.

Some settlements might have a higher demand for certain items due to their location, nearby resources, or the concentration of players with specific interests (like crafting or combat).

Timing Your Sales

The in-game economy is more dynamic around certain times, like right after new updates, during weekend peak hours, or when there’s an in-game event. Selling during high-traffic times can lead to quicker sales.

However, be wary of listing fees and potential market saturation. If everyone has the same idea, an influx of the same items could drive prices down.

Bulk Selling vs. Piecemeal

Sometimes, selling items in bulk can attract buyers who are after large quantities for crafting or reselling. However, large listings might take longer to sell. Splitting your goods into smaller stacks can cater to players who might not have the coin for a bulk purchase or only need a few items. This can lead to quicker, though potentially less profitable, sales.
