Trading

From Escape from Tarkov Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Trading will be a part of the dynamic economy in Escape from Tarkov, including rag fairs, auctions, and even the possibility to become a trader.

Dealers[edit | edit source]

  • The pillars of commerce in the ruined, beleaguered Norvinsk. Each dealer specializes in a particular category of goods, be they military gear, weapons, or meds. While their prices are typically steep, you get what you pay for - and more importantly, you can build reputation with each dealer through Quests, to reduce the commission they receive (additional markup you pay on sales and purchases), receive better offers in general, and so on.
  • Dealers also offer additional services, such as repairs and insurance (allowing you to recover your gear in case of death during a raid).

Flea Market[edit | edit source]

The Flea Market is a complete collection of all player and AI trader offered exchange deals. The system works on an offer basis, allowing each merchant to set up complex deals for others to take part in.

The main Flea Market screen

User Interface[edit | edit source]

The market is accessible in the "Trading" menu via a tab situated at the top of the screen. Upon entering the Flea Market, the player is presented with a list of all available deals, set up by in-game merchant AI or players alike.

The market screen is also separated into 3 major sections: The "Browse" screen which is the main view described above, the "Wish List" screen (abbreviated "W-List") which shows all items the player wishes for (added with a right click to any item) and the "My Offers" screen which shows the players' current exchange deals.

The offer list can be filtered via the left-hand category list and search bar, each category also featuring subcategories (e.g Weapons > SMGs). Each category inherits its child subcategories' items. All of the market's tabs can be filtered using this feature.

At the top right of the screen, the player can choose the appearance of the list (currently not available), view his balance, reputation and a button which allows them to add an offer.

Creating an offer

Offers[edit | edit source]

Offers are exchange deals established by players or AI merchants, these have one player switch items with another (or an AI trader). The system doesn't limit the players much, few guidelines being set, thus:

  • All items can be exchanged, including currency.
  • Usually unstackable items will stack within a single trade offer.
  • You cannot offer multiple items, but can ask for a maximum of 3.
  • The same item can be asked for and offered at the same time.
  • You can only ask for examined items.

After achieving PMC level 5, the player can start adding their own offers on the market, offering any item they own in their stash for exchange with any item they have in their Handbook (examined items). Before creating an offer, a player must consider the following:

  • Upon offer creation, a calculated tax in Rubles (see formula below) is deducted from the players' balance.
  • The offer can be prioritized by checking the "Prioritize offer" checkbox to be shown above non-prioritized offers, bypassing filters partially, at an increased tax.
  • The "Require for all items in offer" checkbox can be checked to apply a total price for all stacked items instead of a per-item price.
  • The player can only create a limited amount of offers, affected by their merchant reputation.
  • If an item does not sell, the players' reputation is decreased.

After an offer has been fulfilled, all proceeds will be mailed to the player via the in-game merchant "Ragman".

Reputation[edit | edit source]

Each player has a reputation value which affects their number of offers and the view other players have upon their offers.

  • Reputation is gained upon successfully completing deals, every ₽100,000 gained from deals incrementing the players' reputation.
  • Reputation is lost whenever an offer is not fulfilled, removals included.

Offer slots are increased upon reaching a certain reputation value and decreased upon dropping below it. All offer slot increase thresholds can be seen in the following table:

Reputation Number of offers
From To
-∞ -2 1
-2 0.2 2
0.2 10 3
10 30 4
30 50 5
50 70 7
70 100 10
100 150 15

250 500 30
500 750 50
750 1000 75
1000 +∞ 100

Tax[edit | edit source]

As of patch 0.10.7.2137 there are two formulas to calculate the Flea market fee:

One for selling each item in the stack individually:

( Vo + Vr ) × Q × T

One for selling as a pack (i.e. checking "Required for all items in offer"):

( Vo × Q + Vr ) × T

Where:

  • Vo is the value of what's being offered;
  • Vr is the sum of the value of what's being required;
  • Q is the quantity of the item being offered;
  • T is a static tax factor which currently is 0.025 for regular listing and 0.05 for priority listing.

The difference between formulas lies in that selling as a pack is like selling a single item.

Also, please note that the value of an item is the price you pay when buying it in regular traders.
