Two players trading a very expensive item.

Trading is the act of exchanging items between characters. In Path of Exile, this generally happens between two players. Trading is an essential part of the game, and unlike many other games there is no auction house or single monetary system (e.g. gold or coins). Instead, there are various currency items in this 'barter economy' where players need to meet up before they can complete the transaction.

To trade with another player, right-click on their character and select "trade". When that player is in the same party, right-click the character's portrait on the left side of the screen and select "trade".

Limitations

If an account does not have a character that is at least level 25, it cannot trade currency or unique items to other players in the trade window. To circumvent this, you could drop currency or uniques in a zone in order to give them to other players.

Shop indexers

A large part of the player base uses shop indexers, most of them use the official Trading website. Indexers search the Path of Exile forums and Public stash tab API automatically to maintain a database that players can search in order to find deals. Usually, buyout prices are added to the items sold.
