Shipping Bin Anim.gif
This article is primarily about the game mechanic. For the placeable object, see Farm Buildings.
“If you have anything to sell, just place it in this box here. I'll come by during the night to collect it.”

Shipping allows the player to sell items by placing them into a Shipping Bin or Mini-Shipping Bin. Gold is received after going to sleep for the night.

Iridium Quality.png Iridium quality items have the highest value, followed by Gold Quality.png gold, Silver Quality.png silver, and regular quality items, in that order. The amount of gold received from shipping is the same as when selling to a merchant. The main difference is that merchants will pay immediately, while the money received from shipping is given the next day. Also, not all items can be sold using both methods: some items can be sold using only the shipping bin; other items that cannot be placed in the shipping bin can be sold to merchants (notably, weapons can be sold to the Adventurer's Guild). Items sold to merchants are not included in the statistics on the Collection tab and do not count towards shipping-specific Achievements.

The shipping bin opens its lid when the player approaches it. To ship an item (or stack of items), approach the shipping bin and "use" it (right-click on it), then left-click on the item in inventory. Alternatively, select an item in inventory, approach the shipping bin, and left-click on the bin.

If a mistake is made and the wrong item is put in the shipping bin, "use" the bin at any time during the same day to display the last item. Click on that item to add it back into inventory. Only the last item shipped can be retrieved.


Each Farm Map comes with one preinstalled shipping bin, which can be moved or demolished similar to any other farm building.

The player may purchase additional Shipping Bins at the Carpenter's Shop for data-sort-value="250">Gold.png250g and Wood.png Wood (150), which can be placed anywhere on the farm. Shipping bins are built instantaneously upon purchase.


Shown below is the Shipping Collection tab of the player menu. The game keeps track of which of the shown items are shipped and how many.
