There are 2 possibilities to trade in Anno 1800. There is the active trade and passive trade.

Active Trade 

In case of active trade you send your ships to another islands' trading posts and buy and sell goods  there. You can sell all your goods, items and ships anytime to the neutral traders like Sir Archibald Blake etc. To actively trade with your settling AI opponents or other human players in multiplayer mode, you need to reach a trade agreement via the diplomacy . Then you can see what they buy and sell, and trade with them.

Passive Trade

Passive trade means that you automatically sell or buy goods directly from your island, without shipping them yourself. You basically wait until someone comes and buys/sells goods at your harbour. To enable that you have to select your trading post and then choose goods which you want to buy/sell.

There are 3 options represented by 3 different arrows:

  • If there are 2 arrows (left and right) then it means you are buying till a certain amount and everything above it will be sold.
  • If the arrow only shows to the right then it means you buy the amount you allowed.
  • If the arrow only shows to the left then it means you are selling it.

Goods prices and availability

The table below presents trade prices (per 1 ton) of all goods in the game, sorted by population tiers. Last column also indicates which neutral trader or pirate has a special offer regarding these goods.

Items

The player can equip their ships with items that reduce the purchase price of sold goods (and items) at ports. While a list of them isn't yet on this page, it should be noted that these effects stack additively, for a practical limit of -60% the original purchase price (= the same as selling price).
