Looking to buy and sell Pals in Palworld? We’ve got all the information on Pal merchants and Black Marketeers right here.

Pocketpair’s monster collection and base-building game lets you capture creatures called Pals scattered across its open world. But what if you want to clear your Palbox after banking all that bonus XP from capturing them? Don’t worry, you don’t have to use the Meat Cleaver.

Be sure that they’re not the best mining pals in Palworld unless you’ve got enough of them. And if you’re on Nintendo’s turf, check if Palworld is coming to Switch as well.

How to buy and sell Pals in Palworld

Find a Pal Merchant in Palworld to buy and sell pals. Look for the characters dressed in dark blue. The red Wandering Merchants that spawn at random and show up at your base sometimes won’t deal in Pals. In addition to earning a good amount of money, you can clear your Palbox this way to make space for more Pals. Once you find a merchant, simply select the sell option and you will have the chance to sell some of your Pals to this NPC.

Note that these regular merchants only accept regular Pals. They won’t accept contraband Pals if you decide to adopt the Team Rocket approach of stealing them. But there is a merchant who will: the Black Marketeer.
