Are there variations in the value of goods sold or traded in the frontier versus a city like Boston or New York?

Furthermore, are goods worth different amounts when selling to a peddler on a cart versus a peddler in a brick-and-mortar store?

Basically: is it more advantageous to sell goods at certain locations over others?

Goods seem always to fetch the same price regardless of where you sell them.

I just tested this in the frontier and in Boston. A frontier peddler in a traveling cart offered me £3332 for all of the goods I was carrying (mainly bobcat and elk parts). A peddler in a cart in Boston offered me £3332 for the same haul. The shopkeeper in a brick and mortar store in Boston offered me £3332 as well.


There are variations in the value of goods sold once you unlock the ability to sell goods via your own convoys. Thanks to aviangentile for pointing this out - I hadn't realized I could do that.

It should be noted, however, that selling prices do change when selling goods via convoys. – aviangentile Dec 27 '12 at 18:46
@aviangentile, what do you mean about selling goods via convoys? Are those the peddler carts in the frontier? (Or perhaps there's something in the game I haven't encountered yet.) – hairboat Dec 27 '12 at 19:25
It believe it's unlocked when you get full control of Conner and the Homestead. The game makes you go through a simple tutorial of how convoy management works. – aviangentile Dec 27 '12 at 20:01
