Where to Sell Items in Red Dead Online
Speak with the Shopkeeper to start selling.

Red Dead Online is all about making money. One way of making money is by selling items. Where do you sell these items you ask? I’ll show you. Here’s where to sell items in Red Dead Online. Note: There is a Gold Belt Buckle Trade award for selling items at each of the 3 shops listed below (easy XP).

Sell Items to a Fence

One place you can sell your items is at a Fence. These shady business owners do not care where, how, or why you got the items, which is nice for those of you out there that are less than honorable cowboys. Anyways if you go to a Fence you can sell them a number of items including valuable items like jewelry, rings, watches, buckles, etc. There is a trade award associated with selling various amounts of valuables to a Fence (10/50/100/500/1000).

You will find Fences in Saint Denis, Van Horn Trading Post, Thieves Landing, and Rhodes.

You can sell herbs you collect to a Doctor.

The last merchant you can sell items to is a Doctor. Doctors can be found in the various cities of Red Dead Online. At a Doctors you can sell any pickable flowers/herbs like Violet Snowdrop, Creeping Thyme, Currants, etc. Of all the merchants, selling items to a Doctor seems to be the worst way of making money. There is a trade award associated with selling various amounts of herbs to a Doctor (5/25/50/75/100).

Items that Can’t Be Sold

Rockstar allows players to sell some things in Red Dead Online, but not everything can be sold. Since the game is currently in beta these unsellable items may become sellable, but for now I will just be listing them here. Let me know what else can’t be sold and I will add it here.

  • Horses.
  • Alcohol.
  • Food.

    Great! I use Facebook and install a software called cucomm. It automatically sends messages to users and can add them as friends. This significantly saves time on more useful things for business development.

    It says there is no trapper online but there is. He’s called gus and will buy animal skins and pelts for a good price

    You can only sell pure, unimproved (dead) items to the Dr. and Butcher. If you cook something or craft something, you can’t sell it. Alcohol has been improved, thus not something you can sell.

    Fence only takes loot items of value as the author mentioned.
