Merchants can be found in almost every city and town in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Most are open from about 8am to 8pm, but some merchants are available all day, while others operate for 14 hours. The following is a list of merchants and their locations.

It should be noted that the merchants' inventory seems to run off of an item generator, meaning that each separate save or character created from that save will result in a completely different inventory every time.

Merchant TrainersEdit

Some merchants offer training services. This can be useful since the gold paid to them for their training is added to their inventory for trading, allowing players to get their gold back after training by selling items to the trainer.

Notes Edit

  • (*) Tonilia is available as a Merchant after joining the Thieves Guild. Some of the other fences are available only after completing specific missions for the Guild. Fences' gold depends on the progress made in the Thieves Guild. They will have 4,000 each once all missions are complete.
  • (†) One merchant will appear in The Ragged Flagon after each special job for the Thieves Guild to spread their influence across Skyrim.
  • (‡) Members of the Dawnguard and the Volkihar Clan will only sell their goods to the Dragonborn if they are a member of their respective faction
  • (§) Majni will only sell his goods to the Dragonborn if they are a werewolf.
  • (‖) Angeline Morrard will limitlessly accept 500GoldIcon investments but her gold limit will not increase. Ghorza gra-Bagol will have a dialogue line available for proposing an investment but no line to actually allow the 500GoldIcon investment.

TriviaEdit

  • If enough of Merchant's possessions are stolen, they may hire Thugs to "teach you a lesson."
  • A spouse is also a merchant. After marrying them, they open a store (it's not an actual place, they sell things from their home) and the Dragonborn may buy items from them.
  • If a merchant lives in their store and the Dragonborn goes beyond the counter to their room, they will follow them, making theft more difficult.
  • The Dremora Merchant can be summoned with the Black Market power which is learned in Untold Legends. He has 2,000 gold and he often sells Daedric weapons and armor

BugsEdit

This section contains bugs related to Merchants (Skyrim). Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Please reload an old save to confirm if the bug is still happening.
  2. If the bug is still occurring, please post the bug report with the appropriate system template  360  / XB1  ,  PS3  / PS4  ,  PC  / MAC  ,  NX  , depending on which platform(s) the bug has been encountered on.
  3. Be descriptive when listing the bug and fixes, but avoid having conversations in the description and/or using first-person anecdotes: such discussions belong on the appropriate forum board.
  •  PC   360   PS3   Merchant's inventory will reset if the Dragonborn attacks them, then loads a save immediately prior to attacking (attacking then using a Calm spell will not work.)
  •  PC   360   Loading a save will not revert a merchant's inventory.
    • Solution: Make a save, then attack the merchant and reload the game. This method does not work with spouse.
  •  PS3   Reverse pickpocket can allow merchants base gold supply to be raised. This has worked at the Riverwood Trader, getting the base gold up to 10,000 GoldIcon—however, the same method failed when applied to merchants in Whiterun.
  •  360   PS3   Rare issue where selling to merchants yields no gold after buying a large value of gold from them.
  •  PC   When the merchant's gold reaches 32768 GoldIcon it yields no gold when selling items, while still taking gold when buying.
  •  PC   If a character talks to the Dragonborn when entering a new area, they may spawn next to Dragonborn. The character will then return to its previous area. This can be troublesome when exiting a store, as the merchant of the store may exit with the Dragonborn, which will cause the store to be locked. Sometimes the store will remain closed indefinitely, even after the merchant has returned to it.
    • Lockpicking the door can then count as trespassing.
    • To prevent this, simply wait for the merchant to be silent when exiting a store.
