All about the Habbo The Marketplace
What is the Marketplace?
Marketplace is a convenient way to sell Habbo items you no longer want. You can list items for sale there for up to 48 hours and check back to see if they've sold. Now you can sell (nearly) all your items through the Marketplace, however there are some that can't be sold there, including pets and items purchased with Duckets.
Why should I use the Marketplace?
The Marketplace is useful for several different reasons:
- Finding older, rarer items that aren’t currently available in the Shop and in some cases never again will be available from the Shop either.
- Making a profit from selling items that you don’t use anymore.
- Getting certain items for a better price than you would do otherwise.
Why can't I use the Marketplace?
To use the Marketplace you'll need a Trading Pass. You can find out more about Trading Passes and how to get one by reading this article.
If you’ve been trade locked by the moderation team, you won’t be able to use the Marketplace (or trade at all) until the trade lock is removed.
How do I sell items in the Marketplace?
You are able to sell any item which is tradable by highlighting it in your inventory and clicking on the 'Sell in Marketplace' button. Items you put up for sale remain in the Marketplace for 48 hours. Unsold items will be automatically returned to your inventory when they expire after 48 hours.
Is there any limit on the price I can ask for?
You need to level up your Travelling Salesman achievement (a new achievement we’ve added) in order to sell your items for certain prices. You can level this up by successfully selling items on the Marketplace. Here are the limits:
No levels achieved: 10 credits.
Level 1: 10 credits.
Level 2: 100 credits.
Level 3: 1,000 credits.
Level 4: 10,000 credits
Level 5: 100,000 credits
How do I buy items in the Marketplace?
The Shop has a Marketplace category which lists a selection of items currently for sale from other Habbos. If there are several items of the same product for sale, you will always see and pay the lowest price advertised.
Does it cost to use the Marketplace?
While it doesn’t actually cost credits to use the Marketplace itself, when your item sells you will pay a fee. How much this fee is depends on how much you sold the item for and is progressive (you will pay a higher fee for an item you decide to sell for a lot).
Can I still trade with other Habbos?
Yes, indeed! To trade with a friend, select their name when putting an item up for sale. They will then see your offer in the Marketplace in their private incoming trades. Other Habbos will not be able to see or buy this item. NOTE: this functionality won’t be implemented until at least mid-2021.
How do I know if my items have sold in Marketplace?
To see if you have items which haven’t sold yet, open the Shop, click on the Marketplace tab and look under your ‘public offers’ or ‘private offers’ when the functionality is added in mid-2021. All your active, unsold items are listed here. Any credits gained from the sales of items in the Marketplace can be found in the earnings window. Unsold items are returned automatically to your inventory.
What happens if my item doesn't sell?
If your item has not sold, it will be returned automatically to your inventory.
Can I cancel/take back items which have been sold in the Marketplace?
Once one of your items has been sold in the Marketplace you cannot get it back.
Can I cancel/take back items which are still on sale in the Marketplace?
Yes; you can cancel an offer by opening the ‘My public offers’ or ‘My private offers’ page in the Marketplace, selecting an item and clicking ‘Recall this’. You can also recall all of your items at once by clicking the ‘Recall all’ button.
