The Trading Posts are a type of planetary Point of Interest.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Similar to space stations, trading posts feature a Galactic Trade Terminal and seven Landing Pads where starships can land. In the main section, the player can find 3-6 NPCs of that system's dominant faction, and, in rare occasions, a Traveler.

Cargo Drops can be found near the landing pads and in the lower sections of the Trading Post.

Locating[edit | edit source]

Trading posts can be found by using the starship's Economy Scanner, asking an alien NPC for directions or by pure exploration.

Trade routes[edit | edit source]

Following Trade routes or starships in space or in a planet's atmosphere can lead the player to a trading post.

Prices and tradeables[edit | edit source]

Prices and tradeables at trading posts can differ from the system's space station. Trading posts seem to offer far fewer resources (Ex: Ferrite Dust) than Space stations, but more rare items for a cheaper price.

Missions[edit | edit source]

Delivery missions will ask the player to deliver a certain resource or tradeable to a trading post in that system. Once there, the player has to enter the post's Galactic Trade Terminal in order to complete the mission.

Additional Information[edit | edit source]

Staircases were introduced to ascend to Trading Posts in the Beyond update.
