Trading time is a way for you to sell crafted items or unwanted materials for Chits. There are four round types and each must be unlocked individually through the Almanac (Skill Book) before your traveler can participate.
To sell an item, click and drag it from your bag/inventory to the conveyor belt (pictured above). Alternatively, you can double click to move your item to the belt.
You and other players at that campsite can sell and purchase items until the round is over. The purchase an item offered on the conveyor belt; simply click and drag it into your pack or double click the item. If you decide you no longer want to sell an item, double click or drag it back into your bag.
The price you earn for your item depends on the rarity/quality and if the item is in demand or not. Crafted items tend to garner more Chits than materials picked up along the trail.
As the round counts down, the conveyor belt will move to the right and items on it will slowly decrease in "asking price." At the very right of the belt, there is a Chopper that will destroy any items that haven't been purchased/removed before the timer runs out. Even if your item is destroyed, you will earn Chits. Although, the Chits received for destroyed items is lower than if it had sold to another player.
The box on the right side of your Trading Time screen will indicate which Round you're currently in.
You can sell any item you'd like, but items listed in the box on the right (pictured above) will earn bonus chits!
On the left of your screen, you can see a dynamic leaderboard that shows you Chits earned and how your earnings compare to other players. Reach 1st place and get an extra bonus!
