All Trade Authority Locations in Starfield

Jessica Dillon

The Trade Authority is a shop that all players should get to know rather well. This is where you are going to make most of your money in the game, especially if you like to occasionally take things that don’t belong to you. These shops are plentiful, so once you know where to look for them you should have no problem making money. The guide below goes over what the "Trade Authority" iconTrade Authority is, and where to find them.

What is The Trade Authority

The Trade Authority is where you go in Starfield to sell off your goods for extra Credits. There is a limit to this, however, as the kiosks and shops have a set amount of money. Kiosks tend to only carry 5,000 Credits per day, while the main shops themselves seem to have around 12,000 Credits. They refill each day though, so if your shop runs out, just sleep to the next day and start selling to them again.

The Trade Authority will also buy pretty much any item you have, even if it’s stolen or contraband. This makes them a great stop as you can find them in every major city. There are several locations you can go to, as the Trade Authority likes to have bases around all of the popular areas of space.

Where to Find All Trade Authority Locations

There are a total of five Trade Authority Kiosks and five Trade Authority stores that you can find while traveling the systems. The chart below lists every one of them and where they are located.

Starfield is an action role-playing game from Bethesda Game Studios set in a futuristic interpretation of space exploration and colonization. Earth has long been abandoned, but there are plenty of other planets in different star systems where humans have ventured and settled. You have the freedom to create your own character with a unique background, but the main story will take you through a series of adventures as you uncover more information about mysterious artifacts which create gravitational anomalies. Along the way, you can build and customize your own space ship, establish your own outpost, befriend and romance new companions, and more. As a Bethesda game, you can also expect to see a lot of creative mods which have the potential to change your experience of the base game, or take it in an entirely new direction.
