What is the Trading Post?
The Trading Post is a market where all players buy and sell items. It is like the stock market, you can set buy and sell orders at the price you choose.
Because most items are useless, you can recycle them to get repair parts instead of selling them at the Trading Post. It can be tempting to use a Trading Post. You may end up using some precious coins to temporarily improve your equipment.
You can weigh the pros and cons of using coins. Most of the time, they are temporary improvements. Think twice before spending money, because it is difficult to make money in this game.
How to unlock Trading Post?
Starting with patch 1.0.5, the Trading Post is now locked behind the task progress to fight against robots. Attempting to access it beforehand will result in a message telling you to complete the settlement task first.
The new character needs to pass the watchtower mission, until finally asked to go to their first settlement. The settlement task Trader Market will be provided by the magistrate, and completing it will unlock the Trading Post for you.
How Does the Trading Post Work in New World?
When you use the trading post, you can search for the item you want to buy on the search bar. You can also find what you are looking for by searching the item category.
You can check the buy and sell orders and decide whether the price is too high or too low for you. On the right, you can see the lowest price of a particular item listed by the player.
The prices of buy and sell orders usually vary greatly. The crafts that players spend money to buy usually have a calculated price point for a specific resource to earn the profit of each craft.

When you issue a sell order and a buy order, you don’t need to wait for its processing at the trading post or settlement.
You can try to upgrade, complete tasks, collect some resources, or do whatever you like. Buy and sell orders will notify you from anywhere when an item is bought or sold.
All trading posts are different and separate from each other. You can have a buy or sell order in Windsward, and another buy and sell order in Cutlass Keys.
Each settlement has a different market. You can find other solutions that may have lower prices for specific resources, and vice versa. If you are buying or selling in large quantities, it is best to check the price every time you settle to increase your profit or save some gold coins.
It will require you to move resources to settlement with better prices manually. If you are looking for resources worth thousands of gold coins, it is best to follow this strategy.
If the difference is not so significant, you can proceed as you wish. It may not even sell at the price you want, so it’s best to play the market wisely.
