When you need a quick Pal that isn’t easily acquired or some quick cash, you know who to call – black merchants! These merchants are on the dark side of trading, but they can come in handy often, so it’s good to know where you can find them.

Black merchants, or Black Marketeers as they’re called, can be found all over the Palworld map, but not all of them are easily accessible. Read our guide to find out where these guys are hiding and how you can get to them quickly.

Where Are Black Merchants in Palword?

When you’re trying to reach Black Marketeers in Palworld, there are a couple of things you need to know about. The first thing is that they won’t all be accessible from the get-go. Instead, as you explore the map and reach new areas, you’ll get access to new ones. Secondly, there are 5 of them that we know about so far.

Also, black merchants won’t always be in their spot. If you happen to miss them, just leave the area and visit it on another day. Visiting the same Black Marketeer on a different day can also reset his prices so if you think a Pal is too expensive for you, try this method to save some Gold. For example, I saw Penking being sold for both 12,000 and 15,000 Gold.

The first black merchant can be found in the Abandoned Mineshaft (you need to access the Mineshaft from the south) just northwest of the Tower of the Rayne Syndicate. The quickest way to get there is to use the Desolate Church fast travel point. See our map above for the exact position.

The next Black Marketeer is found just west of the Tower of the PIDF (Palpagos Island Defense Force) inside the Secret Mineshaft. You can use PIDF Tower Entrance fast travel point to get there quickly. See our map for the detailed location of the merchant.

When you’re in those snowy parts of the map and are looking for a Black Marketeer, make sure to check out the one in front of the fortress in Duneshelter (the regular merchant can be found inside the fortress). Go to Duneshelter’s fast-travel statue and go north to trade with this guy quickly. See our map for detailed location.

You’ll find this black merchant in the woods, right under a big rock formation that looks like that famous one from The Lion King. Your quickest way there would be to use the Fort Ruins fast travel point and go northwest. It will be a decent walk, but you’ll get there without too much hassle. Our map will give you the exact location.

Wanted to go where summer never ends? Well, you’re in luck. The last Black Marketeer is found just south of the Beach of Everlasting Summer fast travel point. Walk down until you see the white beaches. Right next to a big rock, you should see your guy. Our map shows you where he is exactly.
