### How to Make Money Easily

The idea here is that it is better to focus on a high number of trades rather than attempting to maximize profits from a particular commodity by randomly traveling and doing missions. A decent amount of profit can be made just by keeping a rotating stock on hand, and with careful attention, a few routes can be identified that can be mixed into regular activities or intentionally taken for a bigger payout.

That’s one of the common high-level strategy that many are using for moderate to high trading success in the game. But if you’re looking for something more specific then here’s a simple **step-by-step plan for beginners** to earn as much as **100k credits**.

### Sample Trading Guide

#### Step 1:

First, begin by exploring the **Ceto System** and start working towards your first few credits. You can do this with the strategy mentioned above or for instance when you first arrive at **Union**, you can buy Ramen from the **Ramen Shops** in bulk for low prices (~5c each) and then proceed to sell them (for ~20c each) at **Ceto** – note that you can only do this once. There are many ways to go about this initial grind. The idea here is to collect enough credits to then be able to get a **Heavy Fighter. **Heavy Class Ships are the only ones in the game with fully maxxed out **Cargo Load**.

#### Step 2:

Then go ahead and discover** Union** **System** and spend time locating shops all around the map.** Prescott Starbase **located in “The Concession” region, for instance is a good place to start. It is a sizable space station that serves as a bustling trade hub within this location. The abundance of multiple shops here is an advantage because they will readily buy huge amounts of cargo. Now empty out your cargo hold.

#### Step 3:

Finally proceed to as many shops in **Union** to go on a buying spree. You are to look for 3 items –** Earth Wine** (good profit margin), **Small Arms**, and **Liquor**. Get as much of these as you can. Now return to **Ceto** and head over to **Siren’s Sea** in the **Deep Fields.** Here you will be able to sell all of your loot you to **Marie de Windt** who operates the trading ship **The Flying Dutchess** for a fat profit.

Depending on the size and the contents of your cargo hold, you can easily earn 100k credits in one single trip. Moreover, if you decide to do multiple rounds of back and forth then you can also buy Solar Panels in Ceto to sell in Union for a decent profit.

### More Trading Opportunities with Commodities

In the 3 main items mentioned above, **Earth Wine** is definitely the **most profitable**. Here is list of three more **high-profit items** along with details on where to buy and where to sell. Once you get the general idea, you can easily implement **optimal trading routes** for the below list of items as well – this is how a **lot of people make money** in the game.
