This guide will go over how you can make gold fast by trading in Mount and Blade 2 Bannerlord. By buying low and selling high, you can easily start profiting from the difference in prices between settlements.
First, head to any city on the map and select the trade option. You’ll want to look for cheap products to buy and sell. Each city sells different things for different prices, and the goal here is to buy cheap items in bulk and sell them to cities willing to pay higher prices.
Hover over an item like ‘Hides’, and you can see how many are for sale and how much each one sells for at this particular location. On the right side, you can see what other settlements are willing to pay for this item.
In this example, we can buy hides for 44 from this city and sell them at Epicrotea for 102 gold. This would net us a 58 gold profit from buying and selling hides between these two cities. You need to also take into account how far the city you want to sell at is located. If it’s too far away, the price might change and you might also get attacked and lose gold.
