The Black Market is a new marketplace system that allows you to buy and sell items instantly. This feature was introduced at the end of 2021, and appears at select intervals throughout the year.

How do I find it?

Go to Shop > Black Market to check open up the marketplace menu! Here is where you can begin to shop around or start listing your own inventory extras.

How do I list items?

Once you've opened the Black Market menu, tap on the ➕ in the upper right to list your items. Select the item you'd like to list, and set a price. Each type of rarity will require a different minimum price:
Common, Uncommon, Rare: 150G
Epic: 1,000G
Legendary: 3,000G
On the "List an Item" screen, you'll see a few key bits of info: the current number of listings; the floor price (the minimum price at which you can list); and average price (determined by the typical rates at which that item has been selling). This info is here to give you a better idea of how much your particular item is worth, along with how popular or rare it might be.
You can check out your listings and toggle through the filters for Active or Sold listings any time by tapping on the My Listings tab on the top of the main Black Market Menu.  
After you make a sale, return to the My Listings tab and toggle the Sold filter to collect your Gold.
If you don't collect your Gold or listed items before the marketplace closes, no worries!  These will be returned to you through Inbox > Gifts after the Black Market season ends.

How do I buy items?

When you open the Black Market, you'll see a page full of newly listed goods. Tap on an item that catches your fancy to open a menu presenting users who currently have that item for sale, and then peruse the listings to find the best deals!
  • Each item will display number of listings, floor price, and average price
  • Scroll through various users to see who's selling for the best price!

Frequently Asked Questions

What items are eligible to be listed on the Black Market?
The item you list must be:
  1. Tradeable
  2. A clothing item
  3. Not currently available in a secondhand grab or active trade
I listed an item in the Black Market, and now I can't find it in my inventory. Help!
Don't panic! This is essentially the same behavior as when you place an item inside a trade or Secondhand Grab machine. The item will be returned to you if you cancel the listing, or if the Black Market closes before your item is sold.
I listed an item in the Black Market at the wrong price. How do I edit the listing?
It is currently not possible to edit an active listing. Instead, you can remove the listing to return the item to your inventory, then list it again at the correct price.
Why is there a fee on Black Market purchases?
This is done to reduce Gold inflation in the Highrise economy. We want your Gold and items to maintain value over time, and the simplest way to do this is to place a small fee on player-to-player transactions.
Why do my listings expire?
To efficiently manage the high volume of Black Market listings, we've introduced a 30-day expiration policy. After this period, expired listings will be removed from the Black Market and restored to your account.
