If you’ve bought out a vendor’s stock in Starfield and are wondering how long you need to wait until they restock, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered.

Vendors in Starfield can sell the player all manner of wares and are a crucial resource to lean on. They also can buy your items and gear with their limited pool of credits.

Fortunately, if either their stock or their credits run out, you won’t have to wait long until they reset. Below, we explain exactly how long you need to wait until vendors restock in Starfield.

When Do Vendors Restock in Starfield?

Vendors in Starfield restock their inventory and credits every 24 in-game hours local time. You can skip this time easily by sleeping in a bed or waiting on a bench.

However, while general items like ammo, crafting resources, and healing items will be restocked, not all inventory will be restocked. This includes unique weapons and armor.

We tested this on several shops in Jemison, including Jemison Merchantile, by waiting on a bench nearby for the full 24 hours.

If you find the vendor still hasn’t restocked after this time has elapsed, there are a few things you can try:

  • Talk to the vendor, leave the building, reenter it, and talk to the vendor again.
  • Sleep in a bed for 24 – 48 hours.
  • Close Starfield and then reload your save.

Which Vendor Has the Most Credits in Starfield?

Zuri’s Essentials, run by Zuri Abara, in the Key has the most vendor credits in all of Starfield. She has around 12,500 credits at her disposal to buy your items and gear.

However, in order to access the Key and Zuri’s Essentials, you will need to have started the Crimson Fleet faction quest, as the Key is an exclusive area to that faction.

Alternatively, any of the Trade Authority storefronts are suitable options, as they each have around 11,000 credits. They can be found in the following locations:

  • The Den, Wolf System
  • New Atlantis, Jemison, Alpha Centauri System
  • Cydonia, Mars, Sol System
  • Neon, Volii Alpha, Volii System
  • Akila City, Akila, Cheyenne System
