Keys in Rocket League have been replaced by Credits now. These are used to purchase Featured items from the Item Shop, build Blueprint items, upgrade your Rocket Pass and to trade. After making a purchase there will be a 3-day holding time for trading with effects all your Credits. So this means you can't trade these things:
- Any item build from Blueprints during the Trade Hold period
- Pro Tier items from the Rocket Pass purchased with Credits during the Trade Hold
Credits can be traded for items with other players. It's only possible to trade Credits for an item but you cannot trade them for other Credits or a combination of items and Credits.
Rocket League Garage
The Rocket League Garage is a website where players can trade items with other fans of the game to get the one they want. While trading is not the main purpose of the website, it's become a core feature. Rocket League Garage was the first fan website created for the game and covers all things Rocket League including news, item lists, fantasy and trading.
Trading here is simple, there's a good filter for searching through trades quickly so you can find the best one for you. It also includes the platform that the user is using and the ability to contact that user on their platform of choice. Trades are 100% through other users and only for in-game items. The website does have Trading Rules though this page can be easy to miss even when looking for it due to the text being small. There are clear rules for what will result in a warning and what will result in a ban for users.
While there is limited information about how to report users on the website, Rocket League Garage does have a Discord where users can receive help quickly. While most trades here are item-for-item trades, Credits are popular for trading since this is the most common currency for Rocket League. Cash trades are not advertised on this website, however, since this is a user-to-user trading website there is still a potential for this. The most common way to advertise a potential willingness to cash trades is to request “Offers”.
There are many discord servers, subreddits, and Facebook pages full of Rocket League trading, but we are gonna break it down to just the main two we have used and found to be very helpful so you can know a pretty good place to start.
A discord server for every platform that has a channel for every item category, this discord has it all. Trade Central boasts its own Middleman service and reputation system that helps a lot when trading bigger ticket items, but the perks don’t end so quickly. You can trade in game items for in game items or currency, in game items for cash, or even in game items for items from different games. Trade Central has it all and it’s a great place to trade!
Navigating Reddit if you aren't familiar can be a bit confusing, but if you’re familiar with Reddit, r/RocketLeagueExchange is the place to be for all your rocket league trades! RLE trades every platform and also deals in cash in their Anything Goes Threads post. What it's known best for is if you’re looking for that one, super rare or obscure item, that one that there are only 27 of in the game, the one no one even really knows exists, you come to RLE to find it. From White Hat owners and guys that still have codes for every rlcs pro wheel in existence to the guy that just really, really wants an Acrobat Cert Pink Unicorn Horn to complete their collection, this place has people trading just about everything there is in the game.
RLTracker is a Rocket League website with news, rank tiers information, giveaways and also item trading. This is a great website for Rocket League fans even if you don't intend to do any trading with others. It also displays recent posts to the Rocket League Reddit and lists what the most highly demanded items are on the home page.
Trading here is between individual players so users need to communicate directly with each other to agree on a trade. RLTrackers also lists if the user is online and when they were last online which is handy for dealing with real people. Clicking on an individual's username will show their profile page for this website including all of their open trade offers, Discord name, reputation and more. It's also possible to search by platform and to search for specific items here.
Due to the risk involved with user-to-user trading, RLTracker has a Scammer List available on the website where users can check to see if their potential trading partner is safe. The website has created a list using reports from various independent databases which have been centralized to make trading as safe as possible. They recommend taking video or photographic proof of all trades made for Rocket League and other games.
Rocket League might have a strong trading scene but it's not as popular as other large games like CSGO which means most trading will be done through other individuals. Unlike a lot of the trading websites for games, most Rocket League websites don't use automated bots to control the exchanges.
They're completed manually and privately between players. The website can monitor messages on their websites however most of them also encourage users to speak privately. When speaking privately be sure to take screenshots of the conversation as a safety net. Trading Rocket League items is simple for all platforms and you shouldn't have much trouble here if you do some due diligence first. Always be sure to check about reviews for the website and also if it lists payment options too. Now go out there and make the car of your dreams a reality!
