The market is a very simple, yet important building. You may construct one by clicking on an open building spot in your City and clicking on the market. You will need a small amount of resources to build it. A market is your source for selling surplus resources and buying resources you are in need of (Food, Lumber, Stone, Iron). The currency is gold. You receive gold for selling and spend gold for buying. Often, players will take advantage of high and low prices, and make a profit. As your market levels up, the transaction capacity grows too.
In market, there are two ways to purchase or sell resources.
You can exchange your resources with players in the player market. You don't need to spend diamonds and all you need is to spend time find a matching player. You can place a new deal by defining the resources you want to sell/buy, price, transport range, target buyer etc. You can also browse Player Market to see what resources you need.
If you can't find the resources you want in the players' market, you can directly purchase resources via System. All you need is to get a Merchant Notes from the shopping mall. After that you can exchange resources with System by gold. In System Offer panel, you can buy the resources you need from the system; in System Bid panel, you can sell out the extra resources to the system to exchange gold.
Another interesting function is to transport your resources between cities, trade routes.
Trade Routes is very useful when you have several cities. You can fix a time and amount of the resources to be transffered from one of your city to another. It's very useful to help you to balance resources among different cities.
- The market is a method of trading goods to anyone on any server without having to use transporters|workers. Listng goods at a price higher than market value allows the order not to be automatically accepted by the next bidder.. thus goods can be "traded" above market value without having to use men to transport them
- The market can also be used as a bank. To do this it needs to be level 4. Say you are being attacked in 25min. Simply sell all your resorces at the going price and them buy them back, this way, they will get back to you within 5min of you being hit.
- Don't put your resorces up for sale just before you are about to be plundered and then expect to get them back by canceling the offer after the attack has landed. This does not work and the attacker will take those resorces.
