A Market Board allows buying items listed for sale by other players through their retainers. Free Trial players do not have access to Market Boards.

Market boards are interactable objects found in the marketplace and residential areas of each capital city, and marked on the map. All market boards access the same server-wide market, showing all items listed for sale in any city. When using the World Visit System to travel to another server, players can use the market board to access the destination server's market for purchasing, though items cannot be listed for sale there.

Purchases are made with Gil Gil for a price set by the selling player, plus a 5% fee on top of the price. This tax is fixed for the buyer, but the seller also pays a tax of between 5%-0% of the list price depending on the city in which the Retainer is stationed. These seller taxes fluctuate on a daily basis, and the current rates can be confirmed by speaking with aRetainer vocate map icon.pngRetainer Vocate. For an example, an item listed for Gil 100 will cost the buyer Gil 105 and the seller will receive at minimum Gil 95. These taxes are a method to control inflation by removing Gil Gil from the game.

The player-based market often offers better deals and a wider selection than vendor NPCs. Sourcing crafting materials from the market can save a lot of time compared to acquiring them by hand, and equipment from the market can be a cost-effective upgrade, particularly at certain points in the leveling process. The Market Board is also the sole source for HQ icon.png High Quality gear for Gil Gil, which after Level 50 quickly outpaces normal quality vendor gear in stats.

The market board window allows for searching by item name, either via a name prefix or via a partial match anywhere in the name. Items can also be browsed in categories, optionally filtered by required level and suitable class/job, and added to a custom list of favorites and an ephemeral wish list.
