Sir Basil has a shop on the 9th floor in the S.C.O.T.C.H. HQ. Here you can see and buy items from other agents. Your own offers are displayed for 3 days. S.C.O.T.C.H. will collect a tax of 10% of your sale price.
All items currently for sale by other agents can be seen here. Most items from the following categories are currently available for purchase at the Trading Post:
NOTE: Certain items from the above categories are not tradeable and will not be found for sale at the Trading post.
Use the filter system to find the item you are interested in and you will see all the offers currently available for it, listed in order of price from lowest to highest.
If there is something you want to purchase, click on the "Buy" button. If you do not have the required amount of GBP, the button will read "not enough £ to buy" instead.
You may have also noticed that some agents sell things in bulk. To find out the price of a single unit when buying in bulk, you can hover the mouse over the "Buy" button and a pop-up will inform you.
Here, an agent of S.C.O.T.C.H. can put items up for sale. Once you navigate to this page, you will be presented with a form that looks like this:
Fill out the form for the item(s) that you want to sell. If the item is not found in the drop down menus of the form, the item is not currently tradeable at the Trading post. When deciding on a price, keep in mind that you will be taxed 10% once the item is purchased by another agent.
WARNING: If you are selling multiple items, the amount you enter as the "price" is the bulk price, not the individual price. You are selling the whole lot for this amount.
Once you have verified that all information is correct, click "sell" and then click "confirm" make your offer available for all agents to see in the "Offers" section of the Trading post. Your offer will be displayed for 3 days. After 3 days, the offer will be canceled and the item(s) will be returned to your inventory.
If you want to put up another offer, just repeat the process for the new item(s). However, you are only allowed to have 10 sales going at any given time.
In this section of the Trading post, an agent can see all of their outstanding offers. They can also come here to cancel an offer if they no longer wish to sell.
To cancel an offer, click the "cancel" button for the offer you wish to cancel. There is no confirmation after clicking cancel, so if you click the wrong offer, you will have to make a new offer to make it available again.
