Looking for an easy way to sell items, make money, and offload some of that inventory? Here’s where to find Trade Authority locations in Starfield.

Making money in Starfield is easy, so long as you regularly sell your items with the Trade Authority. However, not all planets and outposts will have a convenient spot for you to exchange your loot for cash.

Here’s where to find each of the Trade Authority stores and kiosks, allowing you to sell goods with ease.

Where to Find the Trade Authority

Here are all the Trade Authority locations in Starfield, the only way to sell off that Contraband you’ve acquired on your travels:

Akila City, Akila (Cheyenne System)

  • Land at Akila City
  • Head into the city and GalBank will be on your right-hand side
  • Behind the bank, you’ll find the Trade Authority building

The Den (Wolf System)

  • Dock at The Den space station
  • Head into the central area and the Trade Authority will be on your left
  • This is definitely the easiest Trade Authority to access, and won’t lead to being scanned for Contraband when you arrive

The Key (Kryx System)

  • First you’ll need to be a member of the Crimson Fleet. A questline that sees you go undercover in the organization can begin if you get arrested.
  • Then Dock at The Key space station to find this Trade Authority.
  • This is another option for those who don’t want to be scanned before selling their goods.

Trade Authority Kiosks are far more accessible and easy to encounter when you’re looking to sell items in a hurry. But only Trade Authority shops are willing to buy Contraband, so you’ll need to make the trip from time to time.

You can also occasionally find Trade Authority ships roaming the universe. Hail them with A (Xbox) or E (PC) and you can trade with them right from space!

Where to Find Trade Authority Kiosks in Starfield

Trade Authority Kiosks are found in most major cities and outposts, usually in the same areas where you’ll land your ship. Look for the bright yellow Kiosk right near the landing zone.

An easy Trade Authority Kiosk to reach is waiting on the landing pad in New Atlantis on Jemison, a location you’ll return to many times throughout the Starfield story.

  • New Homestead on Titan (one of Saturn’s moons).

  • And finally just inside the dock and to the right-hand side when entering The Clinic space station, near Deepala in the Narion system.

What’s great about the Trade Authority Kiosk is that it takes items of all kinds, whereas many sellers will only buy things they specialize in.

On top of that, the Kiosks even let you sell directly from your ship’s storage, meaning you won’t even have to have an item on you to cash it in.

However, while the Trade Authority itself is one of the only places willing to buy Contraband from you – the Kiosks will not buy your ill-gotten gains. For that, you’ll need to get to a Trade Authority store.
