The Star Citizen Base Marketplace is a separate subforum within the main Star Citizen Base forums. It is intended for people to use this subform to trade their Star Citizen items or other items.

All Forum Rules apply to the Marketplace forums as well. In addition to the forum rules there is a separate set of rules specifically for the Marketplace. These are listed below.


1: In the instance that we are contacted about any member here being a “bad trader” or a “troll,” we reserve the right to turn any and all IP and personal information we have on that member over to any law enforcement authorities and/or any other group or individuals we desire. If you do not agree with this rule, do not trade on our boards.

2: Use the correct tag for your thread.

  • WTS = Want to Sell, WTT = Want to Trade, WTB = Want to Buy

3: No misleading titles or item descriptions.

4: No Price or “interest” checks

5: You must post a price unless the item is purely For Trade. (trading for cash still means For Sale)

6: No pirated software sales or trades. No sale of NFR or Academic software. OEM software must be sold/traded in accordance with the terms of that software, usually with a piece of hardware.

7: Selling or Trading of CD-KEY(s) without the original disks or digital software is strictly prohibited unless the software was originally sold by the publisher without physical media

8: No auction style posts.

9: No multi-level marketing schemes. (Pyramid Schemes)

10: No sales of coupons or any other freely distributed items such as free beta keys, discount codes, or anything else obtained free from a public source. etc.

11: No panhandling (Requests for money, paypal, or goods and services for free)

12: No trading money for money. (Borrowing money with higher payback)

13: No thread crapping or derailing.

  • Any communications on the threads should be about expressing interest in either selling or purchasing ONLY. Posts debating the price, offering “options”, debating the value, asking about the origins, offering payment information, discussions of purchase, etc… are derailing of threads, will not be tolerated, and will be subject to aggressive moderation if necessary. Questions must be sent to sellers/buyers via PM.

14: No alcohol, tobacco, firearms, weapons of any kind or pornography (anything that can be classified “Adult Material”) are to be sold here….. nothing that is governed by the Federal Government as interstate trade. Likewise, no pharmaceuticals, legal or otherwise, can be sold here.

15: The buying, selling, trading or solicitation of services is prohibited.

16: Selling merchandise using Imperium or SCB's symbols or imagery without the express permission of the site owners who have copyright is prohibited.

17: Requesting a paypal transaction to be sent using “to friends and family” (which gives the buyer no protection) is not allowed. It violates PayPal's TOS. (formerly called “gift” payment in paypal)

18: No requests for personally identifying information that is unreasonable (i.e. requesting driver's license information, real address information, etc…)

19: No attempts to sell referral code uses.

20: Due to high incidences of fraud and abuse, no sales or attempts to swap virtual items from other games are allowed. (e.g. swaps or sales of in-game WoW gold, CS:GO weapons/skins, DOTA gear, etc…)

21: Once a transaction is complete make sure you leave feedback for the user.

22: Members who wish to post on our marketplace may be required to provide verification information to the site admins And compliance with these requests is mandatory.
