Diablo 4 Trading Guide: How To, Item Restrictions, Currencies & More

Blizzard's next entry into the iconic ARPG franchise, Diablo 4, promises to be the greatest in the series yet. Some players are wondering if there is a trading feature and how they can trade with others in Diablo 4.

In this guide, we explain exactly how you can trade in Diablo 4, how trading works, the caveats in the form of item restrictions, and more, so let's get started as Lilith returns to Sanctuary.

Update on 19 July 2023: We've updated this article to reflect the latest information about trading in Diablo 4, including item quality restrictions and more.

Malignant Hearts in Diablo 4 Season 1 cannot be traded.

How To Trade in Diablo 4

First off, to find players to trade with, Diablo 4 has its own dedicated chat channels for trading on Battle.net. You can use these channels to find others who would like to trade or browse trade offers with ease.

Once you've found someone to trade with in Diablo 4, follow the steps below to get the trading done:

  • Invite the person you want to trade with to your party. This allows both players to be in the same World State in Diablo 4.
  • Head to the trading destination of choice as agreed upon by both parties. We suspect that Kyovashad, the starting town, will become a trading hub.
  • Get close to the character you want to trade with, and open the action wheel, then select "Invite to Trade".
  • The other party must now accept the request to trade.
  • Once a trade request has been accepted in Diablo 4, you can add items to the trade window.
  • Once both parties are happy with the items in their respective trade windows, they can click on the button saying "Lock in Offer".

That seems quite easy to do. There are, however, some caveats, you can't trade items you currently have equipped on your character, and you can't trade items directly from your Stash, either. If anything gets changed in either trade window, you will need to click on the Lock in Offer button again.
