The Trade System allows players to trade Prime Warframe Blueprints, Prime Weapon Parts, Mods, Platinum64 PlatinumVoid Relics, alternate Arcane Helmets, Companion Imprints, and Special Weapons (SyndicateWraithVandal or Prisma) at the Clan Dojo's Trading Post, or at the specified trading relay (Maroo's Bazaar). There is a minimum Mastery requirement of Rank 2 in order to trade, and the number of available trade transactions increases by one each Mastery Rank. Up to six items can be traded per transaction and a trade tax is commissioned to complete the trade. The Trading Post can be found in the Place Decoration tab if you are an Architect in your Clan.


Players can also trade on Mars at Maroo's Bazaar (hold the Gear key, default Q  on PC, and click "SET UP SHOP").

PrerequisitesEdit

There is a minimum Mastery requirement of Rank 2 in order to trade.

As of Update 25.0, players need to enable 2-Factor Authentication on the official Warframe site in order to gain access to trade. Follow these steps to enable 2FA:

  1. Go to the Official Warframe website's Account Management page and log into your PC account if needed.
  2. Click on “USER INFORMATION” side tab if it is not active already.
  3. You should see there
    “Enable Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) and receive a free in-game cosmetic: Enable” - click on "Enable".
  4. A popup message will appear at the top of the webpage saying “PLEASE CHECK YOUR EMAIL FOR FINAL CONFIRMATION. IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE WITHIN THE NEXT HOUR PLEASE CONTACT SUPPORT AT SUPPORT.WARFRAME.COM FOR ASSISTANCE.”
  5. You should receive an email within an hour with a link to confirm. Click the link, and wait for the Official Warframe's website to open with a popup message at the top saying
    “TWO-FACTOR AUTHENTICATION HAS BEEN ENABLED FOR YOUR ACCOUNT.”

Trades Per DayEdit

Trading Post

The Trading Post as it appears in-game.

The number of trades that can be made per day is the same as the player's Mastery Rank, with exception to Founders, who get an additional two trades per day. The trade limit is refreshed daily at GMT 00:00 and is not affected by the number of items exchanged in each transaction. Furthermore, ranking up will provide an additional trade even if the daily limit has been reached.

TradablesEdit

Trades are charged for a trade tax which amount in Credits64 Credits based on the rarity of the commodity. Players will need to pay the respective tax for the item they receive in the trade. Additionally, a Clan tax can be set by the Clan that the Clan Dojo is associated with.

Primed Mods such as Mod TT 20pxPrimed Flow are considered "Legendary Items", therefore costing a trade tax of Credits641,000,000. However, Primed Mods obtained from Daily Tribute cannot be traded.

All tradables are split into the following categories in game:

Amount of tax per commodity
Rarity Common Uncommon Rare, Riven Legendary
Tier Lith Meso Neo, Axi Eidolon Capture
FusionCorePackSilversingle Mods and Void Relics Credits642,000 Credits644,000 Credits648,000 Credits641,000,000
CosmeticEnhancer Arcane Enhancements Credits642,000 Credits644,000 Credits648,000 Credits64100,000 (Unranked)
Credits64300,000 (Rank 1)

Credits641,000,000 (Rank 3)
Prime Warframe Part Blueprints Credits644,000

Ayatan Sculptures2 Credits644,000
Fish TBC
Orokin Derelict Keys TBC
Scenes TBC
Platinum64 Platinum3 Credits64500 per unit of Platinum64 Platinum

1) Special Weapons must be unaltered by any Affinity, Forma, Lens, or Orokin Catalysts to be tradeable.
  2) Each Ayatan Star slotted into a Sculpture increases the trade tax by Credits642,000.
  3) Players cannot trade the initial amount of platinum that all accounts start off with. This is to prevent players from creating new accounts to farm platinum. Players cannot trade platinum that has been gifted to them either.

LimitationsEdit

  • For Warframes, players can only trade the respective Prime Warframe Blueprints. Parts that are crafted through any blueprints, and the fully built Warframes themselves, cannot be traded.
  • For Weapons, only blueprints and parts for the Prime, Wraith, and Vandal weapon variants are tradeable. Any other weapons and their blueprints or parts besides the GrineerCombatKnife Sheev, Wolf Sledge Image Wolf Sledge, Pathocyst Pathocyst, Quellor Quellor, Pennant Pennant, and Shedu Shedu cannot be traded.
    • The Syndicate, Prisma, and MaraDetron Mara Detron weapons are exceptions, and are considered Special Weapons, which are tradeable as a whole, but only if they are completely unranked with no affinity, and unaltered with no Forma, Lens, or Orokin Catalyst applied.
      • These weapons, will remain tradeable even if recolored, customized with skins, cosmetic attachments, modded with regular weapon mods, or freely used in the Simulacrum, due to no affinity being gained from killing the spawned mobs. This is particularly useful for trying out expensive Syndicate and Prisma weapons to test their accuracy, attack speed/rate of fire, range/damage falloff, recoil, reload speed, or general handling characteristics without fear of losing the ability to sell or resell the weapons to other players later, if they are not to the user's liking.
  • Blueprints and Special Weapons cannot be traded to players who do not meet their Mastery Rank requirements.
  • Riven Mods requires both the trader and the recipient to have a Mastery Rank of 8 to trade.
  • Relics can be traded regardless of them being vaulted or unvaulted.

TerminologyEdit

People who use the Trade chat have their own acronyms to summarize their offers. Below is a short list of the most commonly used acronyms in Trade chat. A more comprehensive guide can be found here.

  • WTB - Want to buy
  • WTS - Want to sell
  • WTT(F) - Want to trade (for)
  • PC - Price check
  • PMO - Private Message Offer
  • OBO - "or best offer"
  • [...]p - "p" is simply short for Platinum and is normally prefixed by a numerical value, e.g. "100p" means '100 Platinum'.

MatchmakingEdit

There are several means to find buyers and sellers.

In-Game Trade ChatEdit

In general, players post both WTB, WTS, and WTT offers in the in-game global trading chat channel. If you cannot see this channel, then please check if it may have been disabled in the settings: default Esc > OPTIONS > CHAT > Trade Chat.

When you want to contact the sender of an offer in the trading channel, click on their name and select "Talk". See Chat for more information.

Maroo's BazaarEdit

You can also visit Maroo's Bazaar on Mars and meet other players willing to trade, inspecting offers displayed above a seller's head. Approaching a seller and using the context action key (X ) will initiate a trade. To offer items for trade hold the Gear key (Q ) and select "SET UP SHOP".

Trading BoardsEdit

There is a number of trading boards available where players may post buy/sell offers, including third-party websites not associated with the game or the publisher. Notable ones are:

Personal Trading/Chat HistoryEdit

Main article: Chat#History

PC users have a way to partially obtain personal trading and chat history, as long as they have not yet restarted their game session.

There is a partial access to private chat and trading history, with the following observations:

  • Only PC users are able to access the history.
  • The history is only available until the game is restarted.
  • The history is not accessible via the game, other applications have to be used (e.g. Windows Notepad).
  • Only certain information is recorded, including:
    • The names of players with whom you were in a squad.
    • The names of players with whom you had private conversations.
    • Your outgoing private messages.
    • The names of players you traded with.
    • Names and quantities of items (including Platinum) that you both bought and sold when trading.
    • Names of items that you bought from the Market.
    • Names of items that you attempted building in the Foundry.
  • No messages in public chat channels, such as Clan, Recruiting or Trading, nor any incoming private messages are recorded.

Accessing HistoryEdit

The history can be accessed in C:\Users\WINDOWSUSERNAME\AppData\Local\Warframe\EE.log, but note that this file is automatically overwritten every time you start the game. Using a text editor, such as Windows Notepad, you can do a text search in this file for the following:

  • ChatRedux::AddTab: Adding tab with channel name: F
This will find names of players with whom you had private conversations. E.g.
1743.266 Script [Info]: ChatRedux::AddTab: Adding tab with channel name: FPrivateMessengerPlayer to index 6
  • PRIVMSG
This will find your outgoing private messages, including the name of the recipient player. E.g.
1847.978 Net [Info]: IRC out: PRIVMSG RecipientPlayer :Outgoing message
  • MatchingServiceWeb::ProcessSquadMessage received JOIN message
This will find names of any players that were in a squad with you (self included), e.g. those you did a mission with, or those you teamed up with in order to trade. E.g.
2531.781 Net [Info]: MatchingServiceWeb::ProcessSquadMessage received JOIN message from SquadMemberPlayer
  • wants to trade with you
This will find names of any players that tried to trade with you. Note that this will not include players that you attempted to trade with, but it will include players that attempted to trade with you, but you declined and so no trade actually happened. E.g.
2617.190 Script [Info]: Dialog::CreateOkCancel(description=TradingCandidatePlayer wants to trade with you. Would you like to join their trading session?, leftItem=/Menu/Confirm_Item_Ok, rightItem=/Menu/Confirm_Item_Cancel)
  • Are you sure you want to accept this trade?
This will find any trade details you have attempted, including the name of the trading partner, both bought and sold items and Platinum. E.g.
2640.533 Script [Info]: Dialog::CreateOkCancel(description=Are you sure you want to accept this trade? You are offering:
ASH PRIME BLUEPRINT
and will receive from TradingPartnerPlayer the following:
PLATINUM x 100, leftItem=/Menu/Confirm_Item_Ok, rightItem=/Menu/Confirm_Item_Cancel)
If the trade was completed successfully, a few lines below you should find the following, albeit without the name of the trading partner:
2646.343 Script [Info]: Dialog::CreateOk(description=The trade was successful!, leftItem=/Menu/Confirm_Item_Ok)
  • PurchaseCelebration.swf
This will find records of any purchases you made from the Market. Once this record is found, you will need to do a reverse search for PopulateInfo-> to recover the name of the purchased item. E.g.
3239.730 Script [Info]: PopulateInfo->/Lotus/StoreItems/Weapons/Tenno/LongGuns/DoubleBarrelShotgun/TennoDoubleBarrelShotgun
...
3248.563 Sys [Info]: Created /Lotus/Interface/PurchaseCelebration.swf
  • Are you sure you want to build
This will find the names of any items that you attempted building in the Foundry (but note that the record will still still remain even if the build is subsequently cancelled). E.g.
3487.620 Script [Info]: Dialog::CreateOkCancel(description=Are you sure you want to build 'CIPHER'?, leftItem=/Menu/Confirm_Item_Ok, rightItem=/Menu/Confirm_Item_Cancel)


Trade BanEdit

Players may get automatically tagged by the game's anti-cheat system if they acquire an unrealistic amount of loot in a mission, resulting in a two-week trade suspension until the developers review the player's case. These players will receive an in-game inbox message from Warframe's Support Team saying the following:

Hello (Player name),

A recent mission that you completed was flagged for having abnormal results and this has resulted in a two week moratorium on trades being placed on your account. After this auditing period concludes favorably your trading privileges will be restored to your account.

Thank you for understanding.

Warframe Support Team

After the player has been cleared for cheating, the trade ban will be lifted, allowing them to continue trading normally.

TipsEdit

Patch HistoryEdit

Update 25.2
  • Fixed having 6 unranked Mods in the Trade slots appearing as fully rank after "the slots are full" message prompted, and accepting the Trade results in giving 1 max-ranked same Mod away instead of 6 unranked Mods, even when you didn't swap it.

Update 25.0

2FA and Trading
  • You are now required to have 2FA enabled to trade with fellow Tenno. It is required to protect both parties from participating in account invasion-related situations. When both players have 2FA enabled, it helps to ensure that the persons trading are the legitimate account holders trading their own items.

Update 24.6

  • Typing an item name (ie Stradavar Prime, Equinox Prime, etc) in the Trade screen search bar will now display all Relics that contain that item.

Update 24.5

  • The Trading screen now contains a Riven category and specific search functionality!

Update 24.4

UI Changes & Fixes
  • The Dojo Trading screen has received an overhaul!
    • 6 Trading Slots instead of 5!
    • Faster item selection responsiveness and improved UI to help you easily find the items you want to Trade.

Update 18.5

  • A search bar has been added to Trading item sub-menus!

Update 11.2

  • Changes to Trading confirmation pop-ups:
    • We now show rarity of Mods as well as Rank, to prevent “Fusion Core Fraud”.
    • More visibility to the items involved in the trade to increase awareness at every step of the trade.
    • Switched order of getting/giving for the trade accept confirmation, to be consistent with the new offer confirmation. What you are **giving is always first, what you are getting is second (matches the slots as well, giving on top, getting on the bottom)
