Trading Guide, FAQ, Tips, & Guidelines 03/31/2016TRADING POST RULES:
Players are asked to post 1 thread per auction (and/or 1 thread for your storefront and 1 thread for WTB/Looking For). If you want to re-post it 24 or more hours after the original one was posted, please notify a moderator by reporting your thread with the report button to request its deletion. Once it's been deleted you may post it again! Please do not create spam-like "bump" and "link" threads that exist solely to solicit your already existing threads.
Creating these sorts of threads isn't condoned; bumping one's own topic has already been removed because people would bump their threads hundreds of times a day. Solicitation/"bump" threads will be merged with your original thread or deleted, and may accrue warning points on your forum account for spamming. Please see the Forum Rules for reference: https://forums.warframe.com/index.php?/topic/286054-psa-warning-points-20/ =======================================
TENNO SAFE TRADING TIPS: Trading with your fellow Tenno is a large part of the Warframe experience. While most players use the trading system with honest intentions, there are some players who do not. To help protect yourself from scammers, please be aware of the following: GENERAL RULE OF THUMB: Always double, triple check that you will be receiving what you and the other player decided upon. It never hurts to be extra cautious, Tenno! Please also be aware that once you have completed a trade in game we cannot reverse it, so be careful out there! Trading UI Changes: With the release of U17 on consoles, you may have noticed a few exciting changes to the Trading UI. From now on, if a player changes something you will notified instantly. You will then need to re-check to accept the changes before proceeding with the trade:
“Platinum Glitches”: A player might offer to host a “Platinum Glitch” with the promise that it will double your Platinum. They will ask you to enter the desired amount of Platinum you wish to double in the Trade UI. Since “Platinum Glitches” do not exist, the player may complete the trade and leave with your platinum. Take extra care of checking the platinum amount before moving forward with the trade. The amount you confirm in the trading UI will be the amount you receive (even if told otherwise). “Founders Codes”: Codes to unlock Founders' content in Warframe do not exist. Refrain from trading with players that are offering items/codes that have not been announced or made available by Digital Extremes. “Ancient Cores” vs. “Legendary Cores”: Unlike Legendary Cores, Ancient Cores do NOT have the ability to maximize the rank of a mod. Keep this in mind as players will attempt to trade “Ancient Cores” as “Legendary.” For reference:
Additionally, please take extra care of players attempting to trade regular Fusions Cores as Legendary or otherwise. Be sure to expand the cores in the Trade UI to read their description:
Kubrow Trading: Please be aware that it is possible to check the breed and visual qualities of a Kubrow imprint you are receiving by selecting the "VIEW OFFERED IMPRINTS" option in the trade menu. Always be sure to check the imprint you are receiving in a trade is the correct one before completing the trade! The various icons and the associated Kubrow types are listed in the spoilers below: Kavat Trading: Please be aware that it is possible to check the breed and visual qualities of a Kavat imprint you are receiving by selecting the "VIEW OFFERED IMPRINTS" option in the trade menu. Always be sure to check the imprint you are receiving in a trade is the correct one before completing the trade! The various icons and the associated Kavat types are listed in the spoilers below: If you run into any of the above please contact support with details and screenshots of the incident. =======================================
TRADING POST FAQ:
What can we trade?
1) MODS. All Mods in your inventory are eligible for trade including Legendary Cores. There is no Rarity restriction (you can trade a Rare for an Uncommon). Mods that you have equipped on items will display a blue icon on the bottom right corner of the Mod. These are eligible for trade as well, but you will be notified that the mod will be taken off the equipped item(s). Exception: You may not trade away Ability/Precept mods for any Warframe/Sentinel you own, unless you have duplicates of the Ability mod. This is similar to the rules in place for selling Ability mods. You may trade an equipped Ability mod if you have duplicates, so be sure to trade the right one!
2) KEYS. All Mission keys can be traded. Clan Keys cannot be traded.
3) PRIME PARTS/BLUEPRINTS. All Prime Parts( Barrel, Stock, Handle, Receiver, Grip, Lower/Upper Limb, String, Disc, Blade, Gauntlet, Link) and Prime Blueprints (Chassis, Neuroptics, Systems) are available for Trade.

What is Trading Tax?
Trading Tax is a Credit fee applied to all items you receive in a trade.Trading Tax is based off the rarity of the items you will receive. The rarer an item is, the more you must pay in Trading Tax.

*Can I create contests with giveaway prizes that are awarded via Trading?
Yes - but DE holds no responsibility if the reward is not given. As long as the contest is appropriate and kept within the game there is no problem.

8) When the trade is accepted you will see a fancy trading animation and your Trading Tax deducted from your Credit balance!
