How to Sell on PoE.Trade

By Nilin, Posted 14 Jun 2021

Playing Path of Exile, you will inevitably come to a point where grinding just isn’t enough. At this point, while you may have acquired numerous valuable items, few of those will be useful for improving your character’s stats. It is at this point in your playthrough that your best bet for acquiring the items and gear you need to push your character’s power level further becomes trading.

Trading in Path of Exile is a barter system; instead of using a single currency, trades are facilitated using various crafting resources which double as different currencies of differing degrees of value. This system makes it so items in Path of Exile have no singular measure of their prices.

As with similar markets and auction houses in other games, Path of Exile allows players to barter and bargain with each other over the price for items bought and sold.

This article will go over everything you need to know to get the best value from trading with other players so you can then make a profit which you can use to improve your characters.

Trading in Path of Exile

If you’re new to Path of Exile and familiar with the fiasco that was the Diablo III auction house at launch, or if you’ve played other games that still feature player-to-player markets such as Neverwinter, then trading in PoE can seem difficult initially.

PoE doesn’t have an in-game system for finding trades with other players or setting up auctions. Because selling in Path of Exile involves manually finding a buyer, here we’ll go over the selling process step-by-step.

1. Find your buyer’s in-game name.
2. Invite your buyer to your party.
3. Ask your buyer what item he wants and where that item is located in your stash.
4. Move the item from your stash to your inventory.
5. Open a trade window with your buyer.
6. Move the item from your inventory into the trade window.
7. Double-check that the price offered by your buyer is correct.
8. Accept the trade.

The above step-by-step process covers everything you need to know about starting and finalizing a trade in Path of Exile, but before you can even start a trade, buyers are going to need to find you. For this, you’re going to need to use
